@Gambit1024: When I saw it, it made me sad too, I immediately tweeted some love to him.

I had the honor of meeting Dan Slott at a comic book signing he did at my shop last month. One of the most genuinely delightful people I've ever had the pleasure of coming across. Full of stories, good jokes and good times and he takes such a clear and obvious joy in what he does. People sending him death threats (whether genuine or not) are simply absurd.

Yeah saw this earlier, absolutely ridiculous. There is no reason that Dan should be receiving any threats whatsoever. I trust Dan completely as he's had a fantastic run with Spider-Man thus far and I prefer to reserve my judgement until I read both 700 and Superior Spider-Man #1.

Not surprising. This is still inexcusable behavior, though. Like Slott said, those people do need help.

Sad people.

I'm going to rant here: 
 
I can't believe that anyone would send Dan Slott a death threat!  I mean, if they don't like the stories he's telling with Spider-Man, then don't read it and don't send the writer any death threats!  It's not going to solve anything and it's just making things even worse!  This is just something that annoys me to no end because the most simple thing to do is to just not read the stories!

These pathetic people need a solid kick to the junk or ovaries. If your life is that tied up by a fictional character you have way bigger problems than being mad at a writer.

To those making threats : Seek therapy ASAP before you you do something you can't take back to yourself or others.

I love that his Twitter background is a meme-Spidey "HATERS GONNA HATE" because of this.

Gotta love him.

I hate what he's doing Peter Parker but not enough to threaten his life, now if Ock-Peter impregnates Mary Jane and start flirting with Aunt May, then he should find a safe house, b/c my Army's arrows will block out the sun....

There've been a lot of comics that have made me upset.

Cancelling Cassandra Cain's series and turning her evil, killing Gert in Runaways, the new Avengers Academy series, etc. And I've been known to go on a bit of a rant or two about them. But making threats? That's just ridiculous.

I'm the same way. I've been hating on what's being done with the X-Men lately, but I would never even think about threatening another person's life just because I didn't care for the changes being done. That's just wrong on so many levels.

these are fictional characters,  they are not real. i think death threats are stupid towards  a writer

Twitter is full of those kind of people. I'm sure he knows not to take rapid fanboys seriously.

He embraces pretty much everything with humor. It's an admirable trait.
