Writer Tom DeFalco confirmed in a message board post Sunday that his and artist Ron Frenz’s long-running series, “Amazing Spider-Girl,” has been cancelled by publisher Marvel Comics. The final issue is to be #30, tentatively scheduled to go on sale in March, 2009.

DeFalco said discussions are taking place to transplant Spider-Girl — the daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson in an alternate timeline— to “Amazing Spider-Man Family,” where her adventures would become a regular 16-page feature. At present, it is unknown whether this proposed feature would supplant DeFalco and Frenz's existing "Mr. and Mrs. Spider-Man."

Spider-Girl debuted in a 1998 issue of "What If?" and went on to star in her own series, "Spider-Girl," which ran for one hundred issues before being re-launched as "The Amazing Spider-Girl" in 2006.

Wrote DeFalco, “To those who predicted that Spider-Girl would never last, you were right. (You were off by a little over 11 years, but you were right.)”
