    What is the record for longest run by a single writer on a comic book series?
    Erik Larson is up to 200+ now on Savage Dragon isn't he? Or have other people written issues of that one?

    if I recall correctly, Brian Michael Bendis wrote over 200 issues of the Avengers, but that was split between multiple titles such as Avengers, Mighty Avengers, New Avengers, Dark Avengers and Avengers Prime.

    Wow, I didn't realize that many writers had stuck with series that long. It seems like most of the time these days they only go a year or two before someone else takes over or the series ends.

    I decided to take advantage of the big Spider-Man sale at Comixology and picked up my next three collections, American Son, Died in Your Arms Tonight, and New Ways to Live, and some gap filling uncollected standalones, ASM Extra 1-3, and Annual #35. Are there any other standalones or miniseries that are connected to the Brand New Day through American Son stories?
