The Amazing Colbert...Man?

Stephen Colbert Teams Up With Spidey In Amazing Spider-Man #573


I'm almost speechless.  I suppose this had to happen someday.  We've seen the billboards and signs throughout the Marvel Universe.  Colbert for President?  Why not?  He's already sent his DNA out in space (see story here).

I wonder if he's just swinging on Spidey's web or has he amazingly found a way to make his own?

For those worried about the integrity of Spider-Man (like One More Day didn't already mess with that), I'm sure this won't be an integral part since it's only an 8 page story.

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!

For the past few months, fans have been able to follow Stephen Colbert's campaign in the Marvel Universe at http://blog.indecision2008.com/tag/marvel/, and excitement is building.  Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on this landmark issue.

Don’t miss out on Stephen Colbert’s first full Marvel Universe appearance—in continuity!—and the team up that’ll have everyone buzzing! It’s the extra-sized Amazing Spider-Man #573—and no comic book fan can afford to miss it!
