Who would've thought that Jason Kaplan's History & Journalism BA degree (Rutgers University, 2001) would lead to a front page by-line on Daily-Bugle.com? His journalism background collided with his love for comics in The Amazing Spider-Man #700 page 5. This is the final issue of the comic run and sets up The Superior Spider-Man that starts in January. GEEKTIME! producer Ben Barto is also prominently featured with a by-line. Unlike The Associated Press, I won't spoil the story or ending except to write that Jason Kaplan IS NOT the Superior Spider-Man. That could've been too obvious of a progression for Marvel Comics.
Please tweet me if you know who at Marvel Comics made this really cool Easter egg happen. They deserve credit.
The Amazing Spider-Man #700 is available from comic retailers today!
