FREE comic : Spider-Man gets in on inaugural act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Add one more person to the guest list for the inauguration of Barack Obama -- Spider-Man.

Hitting the stands Wednesday, "Amazing Spider-Man" No. 583 will feature a five-page back-up story called "Spidey Meets the President," written by Zeb Wells with art by Todd Nauck and Frank D'Armata.

The story takes place in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day where Spider-Man learns that an old villain plans to disrupt the swearing-in ceremony of the 44th president of the United States.

"When we heard that President-elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics' Marvel Universe," said Marvel's Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world. A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of 'Amazing Spider-Man.' "
