ex·clu·sive /ikˈsklo͞osiv/ 1. noun - a comic book news story or interview written or closely controlled by the editorial department of a major comic book publisher and posted on a big name media outlet. 2. adjective - an increasingly meaningless word tacked on the beginning of headlines to get more hits.

Hey, remember when we (and a lot of sites) reported on the leaked All-New Marvel Now Previews cover that featured a smiling Peter Parker swinging across New York City, proclaiming a new Amazing Spider-Man #1 by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos with a resurrected Peter Parker back in control of his own body and in the Spider-suit? Remember when Marvel made all those sites take down the image? Remember when we provided an artist's representation of that image so that sites had something to replace it with? Remember when Bleeding Cool reported it in December before any images leaked, and everyone reported that too?
Well, apparently that never happened, because the New York Daily News just OMG EXCLUSIVELY reported that Peter Parker will be back in April in a brand new Amazing Spider-Man #1. Thanks for confirming our Super Duper Double Dog Exclusive from earlier this week, Daily News. We really appreciate that.
Journalism: fuck yeah!
Dan Slott is crying about the Daily News and CBR reporting this spoiler right in the headlines on Twitter, as if the return of Peter Parker was ever in question with a movie on the way, and as if the story wasn't approved by his bosses at Marvel word for word. So if you see him, pretend to be really shocked so as not to hurt his feelings.
Here's the cover, and a variant cover by Jerome Opena:
RIP, Doctor Spiderpuss. It was fun hating on you, but all good things must come to an end. What's old is new again, and Amazing Spider-Man #1 returns in April.
Hmm... I feel like we're forgetting something...
Oh yeah. Toot toot, motherfuckers.
UPDATE: Looks like Jeremy Shane scooped me on this, likely because he is able to type faster due to his bald head being more aerodynamic, which means, if my math is correct, we multiply the exclusives by each other, resulting in a Super Duper Double Dog Exclusive Squared. We're leaving both articles up because then we can partake twice in the orgy of unique hits the comics media is going to be engaging in this weekend. Mmmmm. Hits....
