The Daily Show’s Wyatt Cenac and Elliott Kalan Bring SHAME to Marvel

Marvel may be in the midst of all out war against the gods in Fear Itself but underneath the tragic rubble of that story Editor Tom Brennanhas found humor in the situation. Teaming up with stand-up comedian Wyatt Cenac and many other talented people, The House of Ideas is bringing us Shame Itself, a parody anthology turning a skewed eye towards the humorous ongoing of the rather serious Marvel Universe. Below is a sneak peek that Brooklyn based comic artist & Emmy Award winner Dean Haspiel had posted on his blog.

This is not Marvel’s first run at hiring comedians to work with. Recently they also employed SNL’s Bill Hader and Seth Myers to write Spider-Man: The Short Halloween in which the web slinger inadvertently switches positions with a drunken partier who is dressed like him for that night’s ghoulish festivities. As someone who rather much enjoys the fine art that is stand-up comedy, this is not one book to simply dismiss.
