Marvel Comics Says its Spider-Ham Collection Is No Longer All-Ages…

After the massive success of the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Marvel Comics got round to collecting all the Marvel Tails and Peter Porker The Spectacular Spider-Man from the old Star Comics line aimed at younger kids. But it seems that what was considered All Ages back then may not be quite so All Ages now. Retailers have been told that the collection of kids comics from the eighties has jumped in classification from All Ages to T. Marvel define All Ages to be 'Appropriate for all ages' while T is defined as 'Appropriate for most readers, but parents are advised that they might want to read before or with younger children.'

What changed in the last thirty years? Characters smoking maybe? Racial stereotypes? Or Peter Porker eating a hot dog? We may never know… here's the previous listing.Marvel Says its Spider-Ham Collection Is No Longer All-Ages?
