Peter Parker may have lost his precious Twinkies to Union strong-arming, but he’s gained a president. Consistent with the Superman of the Freeworld being more about celebrity, fluff and pop culture feel-good rather than deficits, rising joblessness and debt burdens, Marvel has released a celebratory edition of Spiderman #583 in anticipation of the February Inauguration. It has already sold out and there are now five imprint variants.
These normally sell for about $3 bucks but are listing on ebay for up to $150 on sold out first editions.
It is reassuring to know the Marvel-lous US leadership is so sanguine as the tentacles of Dr Octopus-reality descend upon Americaville, the Syrian carnage flows over into Lebanon, and Israel warns Iran is 90% close to achieving a nuclear bomb. Ah what a tangled web reality weaves.
