Comic book legacy numbering explained – how April’s Amazing Spider-Man #6 can also be #900

What the heck is “legacy numbering” in comic books?

You might have noticed something big happened in the world of Spider-Man in March 30’s Amazing Spider-Man #93, the issue in which Peter Parker’s clone, Ben Reilly, became a supervillain (get all the details on how that happened right here) .

At the same time, you might have also noticed that Marvel has been planning some big changes for Spider-Man, including a brand new, relaunched Amazing Spider-Man #1 in April. And then just a couple of months later it’ll publish Amazing Spider-Man #900, which is also Amazing Spider-Man #6.
