    In early 1994, comic books were hot! And one of the hottest properties was Spider-Man. His comics were selling millions, he had a successful cartoon, and a newspaper strip.

It's hard to imagine comics selling in the millions any more.

    Marvel did a crossover between the newspaper strip and the comics in 1994 called The Mutant Agenda. Issue #0 was just a blank issue with spaces in which you could glue the daily strip to act as a prequel to the Mutant Agenda mini-series.

Looks like there was also a retelling of Spidey's origin, right? Was that a reprint? In any case - Imagine charging $1.25 for a comic that was mostly blank!

    This storyline was adapted into the cartoon during the Neogenic Nightmare season.

Interesting! Are you a fan of the cartoon?

    I bought issue 0 of the mini-series and glued in about 1/3 of the strips from the paper. I wish I had finished. Did anyone else follow this story, or, more importantly, does anyone know where I can find the rest of the story online?

Hmm. It wouldn't shock me if the comic strip is collected in hardcover or TPB. But the comic book portions will probably be hard to find.
