Spider-Man to Newspapers as Insert

imageEver since that year about a decade back when Marvel fired a bunch of people during the holidays, the industry has learned to be wary of news from the House of Ideas around Christmas-time. This news sounds rather interesting, though: Marvel is teaming with a business specializing in custom publishing inserts to do Spider-Man in newspapers starting next summer. Size and format looks like a half-comic book in length, and I would assume this will be advertising or sponsor-driven, although that's just a guess in a series of guesses.

Also, although I'm probably the last person to notice this, here's an interview with Marvel's Peter Cuneo. I didn't see anything startling in here during my initial scan-through, but it looks like a pretty solid iteration of Marvel core corporate values.
