Spider-Man now sticks to envelopes too

Spider_lAt long last, the superheroes of Marvel are joining forces with a formidable new ally: the United States Postal Service. This Thursday, during kick-off day at Comic-Con, the two behemoths will get together to unveil a new series of 20 stamps — going on-sale across the country that morning — commemorating Marvel Comics characters and classic comic book covers.

Take a look, for instance, at the Spider-Man stamp to your left. Upon first glance it made me think three things. 1) Stamps cost 41 cents now? 2) People still even mail letters? And 3) this is a really awesome-looking Spider-Man stamp. Other featured characters destined to grace the upper right corners of America’s envelopes starting Thursday are Captain America, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer, Wolverine, and — hooray for equal rights — Spider-Woman.

What do you think? Will you be lining up at your local post office first thing Thursday morning?

    What? No Man-Thing stamp? Why that’s just criminal.

    I can’t believe that Spider-Woman made it on two stamps… She’s not worthy of that status. Thor didn’t make it at all. Hell, the Falcon is more worthy of a stamp than Spider-Woman!

    Heck yeah, I’ll be at the post office. I can’t wait!

    Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman) made it?

    I’d bet my pension that these will be worth more as collector’s items than the DC comics stamps, just like the comics.
    And Marvel Haters, TRY ME. Aside from some key silver and golden age books, no DC comic back issue gets as much green as its Marvel counterpart. JLA vs. X men? Check the price guides…
