Colbert meets Spidey!


Following in the tradition of Uncle Floyd and the ORIGINAL cast of Saturday Night Live, Spider-Man is teaming up with late-night personality Stephen Colbert:

Marvel is proud to reveal that Spider-Man and acclaimed television
personality Stephen Colbert will
join forces in an all new eight-page story featured in the extra-sized Amazing Spider-Man #573! Acclaimed writer
Mark Waid and fan favorite artist Patrick Olliffe present Stephen Colbert, a
candidate for the US Presidency in the Marvel Universe, teaming up with
Marvel’s most iconic crime fighter. What could bring these two together?
And what will it mean for both their futures? This issue also features a
special Colbert variant by Marvel EiC and industry superstar Joe Quesada! Plus,
don’t miss the stunning conclusion to the sold out “New Ways To
Die” from the dream team of Dan Slott & John Romita Jr!

Colbert has never been ashamed to show his nerdish streak, and previously teamed up with Marvel by having EiC Quesada as a guest on the show, and by “inheriting” Captain America’s shield after Cap’s “death.” He was also the subject of a much-delayed Tek Jansen comic for Oni, based on the egotistical pulp hero Colbert’s show occasionally features.

    Gah! So conflicted…. Currently boycotting Spider-Man because of the marriage… And yet, it’s Colbert! If they don’t team up and fight The Grizzly, then there’s no justice.

    Colbert made an (unofficial) appearance in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #15.

    @Stig: Dammit! Even the comics are trying to turn Stephen gay! Superhero comics, no less– the most heterosexual comics there are, with all those big, strapping men in spandex…

    Alexa – I think Stephen should hang out in Harvey Pekar’s “American Splendor” or appear in “Eightball” or something a little more intellectual than Spider-Man comics. I mean, the way superheroes are rendered nowadays, even Spider-Woman and She-Hulk look like trannies!

    When did Uncle Floyd ever team up with Spidey???

    Man, I’ll never forget the day at a Fairfield NJ signing when my dog took a dump on Skippy’s shoes.

    “anything to get more comics on tv. Sorry but as odd as this is. It’s not a bad idea. ”

    I take it you mean getting some new readers that way, correct? And you’re right, it’s a great idea.

    Problem is, yeah, they’ll pick up ‘this’ issue but in order for them to come back and buy the next, the material has to be good.

    That’s where most publishers are having a problem.

    That Jay Leno thing was actually illustrated pretty well from what I recall.
