Quote:So I've been out of comics for a few years. I know they are going back to the old numbers. Where does Spider-Man 234 fit in? Does this pick up the numbering from McFarlane's Spider-Man #1?
I think you're referring to the issue coming out November 1st?
If so, it's a series focusing on the second Spider-Man from the Ultimate Marvel line. First there was the original Ultimate Spider-Man, the Peter Parker of that reality, which had 200 issues (called Ultimate Spider-Man). Then he and that series were replaced with Miles Morales, whose series was 12 issues (Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man), then Miles crossed over to the main Marvel Universe (616), and got a new series after that (Spider-Man (Volume 2, technically, by name)), which was 21 issues before #234.
