This Just In: Spider-Man gets canned
Peter Parker is getting pink-slipped.
It's not only a tongue-twister -- it's also a dose of true "Up in the Air" reality.
Marvel Comics announces today that in the new storyline for Amazing Spider-Man No. 623 (hitting your favorite shop Wednesday), Spidey's alter ego will be told to hit the bricks from the mayor's office.
According to Marvel's news release, "Peter Parker lays it all on the line to protect J. Jonah Jameson and keep the city from ripping itself apart, but Peter's sacrific winds up costing [him] his career as a photographer."
Marvel Senior Editor Steve Wacker says in the release: "He's going to struggle with unemployment and trying to save the city while he can barely afford to keep a roof over his head."
A big-city journalist getting the boot? File this under "horror," as we read peeking through our ink-stained fingers.
