** Roy Thomas' stint as newspaper ghost writer from 1999 to 2019 made him one of the longest-serving Spider-Man writers of all time, eclipsing the runs by Brian Micheal Bendis and Dan Slott on mainline titles Ultimate Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man

* CassandraTruth: In one story, Jameson interviews Spider-Man (hate him or not, he sells a lot of papers). When Spidey explains [[OriginStory where he got his powers]], Jameson dismisses the "bitten by a radioactive spider" story as something he made up to troll him.


Leiber's retirement in summer 2018 and Stan's death later that year called the future of the strip into question. On March 7th 2019 it was announced that Marvel had cancelled the comic, even though several weeks of strips (featuring Spider-Man fighting the Kangaroo) had already been completed, and that it would be replaced by reruns starting March 25th that year. The future of Marvel's foray into newspaper comics is presently unclear, though it's expected to continue in some way under a different creative team. Sunday artist Joe Sinnott (who wrote the first Dr. Doom comic in the '60s) announced his retirement at age 92 after the final Sunday strip was run on March 17. The major changes continued on April 4th 2019, when the Comic Kingdom website that hosts the strips online was overhauled.

A storyline in the strips from TheSeventies, where the Kingpin attaches a tracking bracelet on Spider-Man inspired one of its readers, New Mexico district judge Jack Love, to develop the ankle bracelet. The strips were also initially responsible for Peter marrying Mary Jane Watson, with the 616 books following suit. From 2010 through to 2015, the strips were the only place where fans could still enjoy the adventures of Peter and MJ as a married couple, before it was eventually joined by the ''ComicBook/RenewYourVows'' universe. With the new creative changes coming to the strip later, it remains to be seen if the marriage will remain a part of the strip at all.

* MsFanservice: Mary Jane is often seen lounging around their apartment wearing lacy pink lingerie for no discernible reason except to be fanservice. To further drive the point home, her debut in the strip is just as much of an EstablishingCharacterMoment as it is in the source material: she's wearing a shirt, [[AbsoluteCleavage with the only "buttoned" button being the one right above her belly button, and not wearing a bra]].
