MIA: Renew Your Vows in October? Because of Amazing Spider-Man #2 Spoilers?

Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows is the comic book that spun out of Secret Wars, telling the story of a married Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson and their daughter, fighting as a joint Spider-family.

It existed as a sop to those who wanted the Peter Parker/Mary Jane marriage back, deleted from continuity by the One More Day reboot. And giving them a relationship that the powers-that-be had decreed would never be restored, according to Dan Slott. Who said he had to fight for Renew Your Vows to happen in the first place.

Well, in October 2018 solicitations from Marvel, there is no mention of Renew Your Vows at all. There are many Spider-titles, more than ever published in one month by Marvel before. But of Renew Your Vows, there is no sign. Here's the September solicitation.

• The Spider-Family has faced tight budgets, city-crushing robots, a mom-warping symbiote, and even a little adolescent angst.
•  But no experience could prepare them for the fight ahead–the execution of Mister Sinister's master plan, and a threat to super-powered people across the globe!
•  Here's hoping the Parkers' resolve is stronger than the Parker luck…
Rated T In Shops: Sep 19, 2018 SRP: $3.99

But for October there is none. Just a trade paperback that goes up to #23…

The adventures continue for Marvel's favorite radioactive-spider-powered nuclear family! And things kick off with a little trip for Peter and MJ!

But Mr. and Mrs. Parker have been saving up for a "just the two of us" vacation since Annie was born, and they aren't going to let trouble — no matter how catastrophic — get in their way! But something sinister this way comes…could this be the start of Annie's very own clone saga?! Find out as an army of Spider-Doppelgangers attack! But that's just the beginning — the master plan of the villain behind it all could threaten superhumans across the globe! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS (2016) #19-23.
136 PGS./Rated T …$15.99

Could it be that the series is no longer considered necessary? As the main Amazing Spider-Man series may be viding much of that appeal in the main series? Such as the opening to today's Amazing Spider-Man #2 by Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley?

And confirmation if confirmation were needed.

Why renew vows when you have the original?

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2

Spider-Man goes back to basics courtesy of Nick Spencer (SECRET EMPIRE, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN) and the Marvel debut of RYAN OTTLEY (Invincible)!
