Man Writes Spider-Man Comic, Gets Death Threats. Yes, Threats of Death

Marvel writer Dan Slott is getting death threats for the leaked ending of Spider-Man #700.

From a story on io9...

"I'm going into hiding after issue #700 comes out. I'm not looking at message boards. I'm not poking my head up out of that hole, because what happens in issue #700 is big!" Unfortunately, now that the ending of #700 has leaked online - it's not due to come out until December 26 - it's no longer a joke. The writer is getting actual death threats for what happens in the comic book, and it's reached the point where he's been forced to call the authorities.
