By: Dan Slott, Stefano Caselli
REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-SLAYER-Part 3 (of 3):’Self-Inflicted Wounds’
One of the most pivotal moments of the SPIDER-MAN ‘BIG TIME’ era happens here. Other comics promise you their issues will ‘Change Everything’ or that ‘Nothing Will Ever Be The Same.’ No carnival barker-like pitch this time. Just the plain, simple truth: This issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN will have repercussions for Peter Parker and this title’s cast for years and years to come. Guest-starring THE NEW AVENGERS.
Also in this issue: We finally reveal what has become of the alien symbiote. And a dramatic change to Spider-Man’s powers. Do NOT miss this issue!

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
This week, instead of throwing players in a ring and having them duke it out, we’re asking you to sit and think.
Teams and organizations are always trying to grow their membership. In the case of the Jedi and the Green Lantern Corps, membership is limited, but each have their privileges. We want to know which would you rather be a member of?
I Kill Giants
It’s a story about a girl who’s a bit of an outsider – she’s smart-assed and funny, but totally in our geekland: she’s obsessed with Dungeons & Dragons, she doesn’t have a lot of friends, she’s a bit of a social misfit. She’s taken her fantasy life a little far, and really only talks about giants to people. She’s convinced that giants are real and giants are coming, and it’s her responsibility to stop them when they show up. This weird little fantasy life that she’s going has started seeping into her real life, and as we see things from her point of view, we see that she sees pixies and she sees signs in the clouds and other things that might be telling her that bad things might be coming.
