I know death is not permanent in the comic book industry but it is sad to see Spiderman pass away on his 700th issue. Farewell #PeterParker

I'm just really sad now that #ASM700 has sunk in. :'(

And the not so positive:
@mtvgeek it lacks honor and the death a hero deserves. to have your arch enemy replace you and then call the title SUPERIOR is an insult
— B Kentner (@BillKentner) December 26, 2012
@mtvgeek awful worst idea ever…
— Michael Maisano (@maisano04) December 26, 2012
Death of Robin I could understand…but not #PeterParker not ever

And the peaved but still okay:
Screw you @danslott but I will still ask you to sign my copy of #ASM700 at the next convention we are both at. : )

And the shellshocked:
@danslott I have read #ASM #700 about 3 times so far and I still don't know how I feel about the ending. kinda like my last break up!
