"This is a Peter Parker who’s had it all, lost it all, and now has to find his place in the world again," writer Dan Slott told Entertainment Weeky. "It’s a return to the scrappy underdog status that’s the Peter Parker we all know and love. We’re going to see a return to form, with old friends coming back onto the stage, some in all-new ways. It’s all been leading to this - from 'Big Time,' to Superior, through Spider-Verse, and the Parker Industries era. It’s been a crazy ride, but now that we’re here, we’re going to get a Peter/Spider-Man that’s closer to a core Spidey than we’ve had in years. Everything counts. Payoffs for longtime readers are coming, but the Marvel Legacy of it all will also make this a great jump on point for new readers - or people who’ve just discovered Spider-Man in Homecoming."
"In Amazing Spider-Man we’re going to see The Daily Bugle and the Bugle cast come back in a big way. And, no, it is not about Peter becoming a photographer again," Slott explained. "It’s a new twist. It’s something we haven’t seen in Amazing Spider-Man yet. After 55 years, that’s a pretty cool trick, right? And it’s a development I’ve been dying to get to for a long time!"
Slott is also already looking ahead to what's next - a big milestone for Peter Parker in Amazing Spider-Man #800.
Amazing Spider-Man #789 is expected out on shelves this fall.
