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.
