Spider-man’s newly swinging ways hit page three of the comics loving NY Post in a story they had to call Spidey’s Smooch Scandal:
“The first page is a real shocker and it’s done on purpose. It’s a bit of a slap of reality to longtime readers,” said Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada.
Those readers are still reeling from the company’s controversial move in the most recent issue, where the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler and his missus had their marriage wiped out.
Spidey thus joins Roger Clemens, Hillary, the ‘pregnant’ Nicole Kidman and Britney Spears in the pantheon of greatness that is the New York Post.
