Broadway’s unfriendly neighborhood Spider-Man covers The New Yorker

With great power comes great insurance deductibles: At least I think that’s the message of artist Barry Blitt’s cover for this week’s issue of The New Yorker, which pokes fun at the injury-prone, delay-plagued, lead performer-shedding, Bono and the Edge-scored, Julie Taymor-directed, terribly reviewed, bafflingly titled audience magnet that is the Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Somewhere out there, there’s an alternate Earth where Norman Osborn is calling Françoise Mouly to find out how much it would cost to buy the original art for this one.

I imagine J. Jonah Jameson would easily outbid Norman, though.
