Yeah, it’s been well documented, both in the Marvel Comics and on the Colbert Report, that Stephen Colbert is a nut for Marvel.  Now the Marvel U presidential candidate gets to team up with Spider-Man in 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.

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!
