Best headline ever!
In the proud tradition of Superman fighting landmines and other great didactic comics of the past, Marvel and the Mayor’s Office of NYC have teamed for a comic book teaching New Yorkers about resources available for their job hunts. “Spider-Man, You’re Hired” “features an unemployed Peter Parker starting his job search, is the Administration’s latest effort to connect out-of-work to New Yorkers to job training and placement services.”
Since Spidey works for a newspaper it’s very likely he’d be outsourced or downsized or whatever they’re calling it.
The program was announced this morning at a press conference at the new downtown Midtown Comics location. (Yes that is an oxymoron.)
Luckily this is the original Spider-Man, not the Ultimate one, or the story would be called “Spider-Man, You’re Dead!”
