Dan Slott Breaks The Internet In Half. Literally

Dan Slott in June:

Every now and then, someone says, “This will break the internet in half” or some other great piece of hyperbole. I can say this with a straight face — and not an ounce of shame or showmanship — this is the biggest damn thing I’ve ever done with any character in any story I’ve ever worked on.

December, the day of Amazing Spider-Man 700’s release: many (though not all) Comixology users suffer outages, prompting the following tweet:

Of course it may also be partly down to a lot of shiny new tablets and smartphones from Father Christmas… Still, Amazing Spider-Man issue 700 is currently their number one in-app purchase on iOS. So it may well be that Dan Slott is the first comics creator who can legitimately claim to have broken the Internet in half. He just doesn’t like to brag about it. But one person who did have something to say was Stan Lee.

 

For those without a smartphone or tablet, here’s the AR plot page from Superior Spider-Man that is triggered by the last page of Slott’s story in Amazing Spider-Man #700.

And while we’re adding pictures, how about the final version of the Steve Ditko cover for Amazing Spider-Man #700…
