Spider-Boy, Spider-Boy, does what ever a Spider-can...or something like that

Yep, that’s right, if you stopped by your favorite comicbook shop yesterday you might have seen a very special issue of the Amazing Spider-Man #666. Marvel comics produced a very number of special, limited-edition covers for comic shops around the country. The owner of the shop I go to (Heroes Comics & Cards in Norwalk, CT), put not only the front of his store, but his 5-yr-old son on the cover.

NORWALK -- Ask 5-year-old Ben Kruseski who his favorite superhero is and he presses two little fingers into each tiny palm and thrusts his arms forward. 
"Spider-Man!" he exclaims, imitating the costumed crime fighter with arachnid strength. 
Ben and Spidey share more in common than their web-slinging superpowers -- they both appear on the cover of "The Amazing Spider-Man" issue 666. 
But unlike the masked guardian of New York City, Ben was willing to reveal his true identity Wednesday to sign autographs at his father's comic book shop on Westport Avenue. 
Seriously, how cool is that?

The shop had to purchase a specific number of copies of the issue in question, something that Heroes’ owner, Dave Kruseski was all to happy to do.
"Spider-Man has always been my favorite superhero, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to put my son on the cover," said Kruseski, a lifelong Norwalk resident.
