It was bad enough Marvel hopped on the Obama bandwagon but this is going too far. Bill Hader and Seth Meyers from Saturday Night Live will be writing a Spider-Man comic book. TV Squad has the whole story.
Bill Hader and Seth Meyers (the latter of whom is the head writer for Saturday Night Live) will be writing Spider-Man ... the comic book, not the next movie. Their single-issue story is called "The Short Halloween" (which I presume is a parody of a Batman comic story called "The Long Halloween") and will be in finer comic book shops on May 13.
This isn't the first time a comedy writer has written a comic book. I recall Gilbert Gotfried helping out with an issue of Superboy and Patton Oswalt writing a one-shot Justice League special, among others. While I don't think this will get the same level of publicity as Barack Obama being on a Spider-Man cover, it's kind of cool to hear about. I wonder if Spider-Man will sing his own rendition of "Dick In A Box".
Saturday Night Live hasn't been funny in years and now these idiots will ruin a new medium. Thanks for nothing, Marvel.
