Spider-Ham: Hollywood May-Ham (Paperback)
Legendary director Alfred Peacock has acquired the rights to bring Spider-Ham’s spectacular story to the silver screen. There’s only one, itsy-bitsy problem: Spider-Ham didn’t sell those rights, and Peacock is getting the origin all wrong—making our hero out to be a monstrous menace! Once he catches wind of the perilous production, Peter Porker uses his Daily Beagle connections to secure on-set credentials, where he not so subtly tries to improve the film’s depiction of his alter ego and fix all the “continuity errors” in the movie.
Behind the scenes, Porker soon discovers that some very shady characters are bankrolling the entire operation, in a bid to convince the residents of New Yolk City that their porcine protector is a threat who must be eliminated. Now, Spider-Ham must face down an army of ninja production assistants and some truly shoddy CGI to prevent this box-office bomb from blowing up his reputation! Will everyone's favorite pig clear his name? Or is this porky protector headed for the cutting room floor?
