The Fourth Estate Pipes In

Maria Lopez, despite being a character I loathe, seems to be one of the only people in this strip with any wisdom. Finding out why Spider-Man has seemingly turned to a life of crime? Inconceivable! I also doubt she'll care about the Daily Bugle, Jonah.

TIL: That's actually a pretty creative headline for Jonah, who usually asks if Spider-Man is a threat or a menace.

How many times so far was Spider-Man imitated in powers and costume and got framed for that?

This city still haven't learned its lesson that is over 10 years old (the comic time)

Where would the characters in this comic be if they didn't have TVs? I'm guessing that they wouldn't know what to do with themselves.

what does Jameson think Maria is gonna say "if it's printed in the bugle it must be true"?

Jameson has a massive crush on Maria, so I'm guessing he's hoping she'll notice his newspaper and she'll think he's cute or something.

That is one very long headline.

Bugle, after Election Day 1948: "GOVERNOR THOMAS E DEWEY APPARENTLY DEFEATS PRESIDENT HARRY S TRUMAN BY VIRTUE OF GETTING MORE VOTES FROM VOTERS."
Famous photo: The huge newspaper being held aloft by Truman and six other guys.

Wow. Have we ever seen inter-storyline continuity like this in the strip before?

Mat said...

Maria's from the LA storyline, right?

Maria first showed up when Spider-Man was dealing with someone pretending to be his wife, which also involved Kurt Kordok, Los Angeles, and the Land Captain.
