As stated in nearly exactly the same phrasing in my "Morluunth" thread, because I'm quoting to save time, the following is an allusion to the popular "Amazing Spider-Man" comic strip series that used to be featured in the daily newspapers across the country, though especially in the New York Newspapers, of the 1970s, 80s, and early 90s.

The Little Bears (189396) was the first American comic strip with recurring characters, while the first color comic supplement was published by the Chicago Inter-Ocean sometime in the latter half of 1892, followed by the New York Journal's first color Sunday comic pages in 1897. On January 31, 1912, Hearst introduced the nation's first full daily comic page in his New York Evening Journal.[6] The history of this newspaper rivalry and the rapid appearance of comic strips in most major American newspapers is discussed by Ian Gordon ..."
