Two-thousand nineteen: A bad year for the media, by and large. Venture capitalists Google. That’s the real world, at least. In superhero comics? It’s never been a better time, apparently.

That’s why, in the wake of DC’s wonderfully zany Jimmy Olsen series from Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber ” which takes a lighter look at media antics in the year 2019 through the delightfully hapless pal of Superman ” it’s interesting to see Marvel announce that New York’s paper of residence, the Daily Bugle, is getting its own comic book.

Penned by Incognegro‘s Mat Johnson, making his Marvel debut, and with art from Black Panther and the Crew‘s Mack Chater, the five-issue miniseries is called Amazing Spider-Man: Daily Bugle and will serve as a loose crossover between events spiraling out of the main Amazing Spider-Man comic series and Daredevil.

Following Bugle Editor-in-Chief Robbie Robertson and the tireless staff of Peter Parker’s occasional employer, the miniseries will see the paper attempt to tackle speaking truth to power in a New York where the Kingpin of Crime holds the mayor’s office.

But when Bugle sources track down a lead on a story about Spider-Man and Wilson Fisk, they soon find themselves caught up in a story that promises to change the way we see NYC’s friendly neighbourhood superhero. Presumably in a way that is perhaps not so friendly.
