Yup, even the Spidey newspaper strip's been affected by Brand New Day

It looks like even King Features, which publishes and distributes the newspaper comic strip of Spider-Man, has been forced to delete the marriage.

This shouldn't be too surprising. Marvel owns the copyright, so they can do this. I know that the strip's circulation has dropped considerably in the past decade, and while it's assumed that Stan Lee still writes it, my guess is that he may not officially be the writer anymore (Brenda Starr and Rex Morgan MD have had a few different writers, and I'd think the same holds true for Spider-Man's strip), though he probably does serve as story supervisor. But as one of the posters on this thread says, Stan certainly doesn't own his creations or Marvel today, which explains why he'd be obligated to reboot everything.

So now, unless writing in to King Features to complain about this could yield some results, fans of the Spider-Marriage won't be able to find any relief in the newspaper strip either.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
