We all know Scott Aukerman (aka Hot Soccermom) can do it all. He hosts the talk show insanity that is Comedy Bang! Bang!, which just hit 100 episodes on IFC. He created the Earwolf network, which has become a heavyweight in the podcast game. But dreams do come true, because Scott has gone and done something that may blow everything that’s come before out of the water: He’s just written a new Spider-Man/Deadpool team-up comic for Marvel.
In the issue, Spider-Man/Deadpool #6, Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth/latest box office king gets his own movie and brings Spidey along, allowing the duo to really lay into their DC Comics rivals. At one point they go to see a movie clearly inspired by Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which Deadpool spanked at the box-office earlier this year. They do not go easy on the oft-rivaled movie.
Full of comic geek inside jokes — like how superhero flicks keep rebooting the same character over and over again — Aukerman’s story brims with his unique comedic sensibility and instinct for parody. Scott is no stranger to Marvel, having contributed stories to the Deadpool series as well as penning a tale about The Hulk’s shrink. It’s safe to say he can now add “Comic Writerman” to his long list of nicknames.
Spider-Man/Deadpool #6 is available right now digitally on Comixology and in fine comic book stores everywhere.
