Yesterday, while Americans were celebrating kicking his ancestors' butts over the right to live in a country that doesn't have a universal healthcare system, British comic book media mogul Rich Johnston reported on an interesting tweet from David Morell, the author of the 1972 novel First Blood, the book which became the first Rambo movie:
My SPIDER-MAN: FROST comic-book project comes out in October as the first 2 issues of a new comic book called PETER PARKER: SPIDER-MAN!— _DavidMorrell (@_DavidMorrell) June 21, 2013
Interesting. So if Morell is correct, a new book will launch in October called Peter Parker: Spider-Man. Does this indicate the end of Dan Slott's Doctor Spiderpuss storyline, which has caused fans to flee the franchise in record numbers? Or will it be an alternate continuity series, further cementing comics' reputation as impenetrable to new readers? Or was Morell, a Canadian by birth though he lives in the United States, just playing a 4th of July prank on hoser American comic book fans, knowing that Johnston wouldn't discover the tweet until two weeks after it was originally posted?
As soon as we get to the bottom of this possible conspiracy, we'll let you know..
