Yesterday, Bleeding Cool pointed out that the cast of The Thick Of It were appearing on the cover of December’s Amazing Spider-Man comic, drawn by Alex Ross.
The Thick Of It creator Armando Iannucci noticed and enquired as to what was going on?
When it was mentioned that writer Dan Slott was a keen viewer of the show, Armando, a comic book fan himself, proposed the following.
Ah. Well if Marvel are up for a Thick Of It/ Spiderman crossover, I'm happy to help. https://t.co/vL5kkhkDmD

@Aiannucci I guess Spider-Man could use a 'spin' doctor. FOR SPINNING WEBS. Oh, suit yourself.
