I HAVE TO APOLOGIZE for a mistake that appeared in issue 1.2 of #AmazingSpiderMan, which I wrote and which hit stores today. In the book, Spidey arrives in the town square of Remedios, Cuba... which is inexplicably flying the Puerto Rican flag instead of the Cuban flag. We screwed up, and I'm sorry.

As you may know, the two flags are identical except for the colors of their star and stripes. As a Puerto Rican born-and-raised, I can't tell you how embarrassed I am by this mix-up. It was an honest mistake; I can't explain how it happened. My colleagues and I will be twice as vigilant in the future to ensure that such a gaffe doesn't happen again.

In the meantime, can we pretend that Spidey arrived next door to the Puerto Rican embassy? Even though such a place doesn't exist? Thanks, you're the best! 😊
