Marvel sent over some previews of Spider-Gwen #1. Will you be picking up the book?

She’s Back! Your First Look Inside SPIDER-GWEN #1!

This February, Marvel’s newest, sensational spider-woman is coming back to comic shops in the highly anticipated SPIDER-GWEN #1! Spinning directly out of the pages of the Amazing Spider-Man’s SPIDER-VERSE and the red-hot, sold-out Edge of Spider-Verse #2, is a new ongoing series that already has the whole comic industry buzzing! Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi all return to chronicle the adventures of the breakout character of 2014! Read the rest of this entry »

2002-Rami-Maguire-Spider-man-movie-Tobey-Maguire-short-hair-cut-slinging-websMark Lorch was bored in his hotel room one night and decided to watch the 2002 Spider-Man movie staring Tobey Maguire. Math and chemistry come easy to him.
Lorch is a Senior Lecturer in Biological Chemistry at the University of Hull. He started crunching the numbers of how much fluid Spider-Man would need to produce enough webbing for an average day of super-heroing.

 

howitworks He broke it down like this: 
*Spider-Man needs an extremely high protein diet to produce so much webbing.
*He’ll need to eat 60 eggs for breakfast to have enough protein to produce enough webbing to swing around town and last him much of the day.  
*If Spidey plans to help save Mary Jane from falling, he’ll need to eat a lot more.  
*In order to save a falling Mary Jane and support them on one web line Spidey will need to consume 900 eggs to have enough protein. 

So after more than 13 years of debate about which is better, I think we can all agree mechanical web shooters win the debate.  

This is taking Spider-Fandom to a new level. Back in 2009 Blogger Joel Jackson designed his own tattoo and wanted to replicate Spidey’s mechanical web shooters. He says “the palms hurt like hell to get done and take longer to heal.” I loved he put “thiwp” on the tattoo. Very cool design! Check out his blog here. 

Marvel sent over this e-mail. Will you be picking this up? Bendis and Bagley? I’m game!

SpideyStatueVia Ted.com and  ComicVine.

Artist Hetain Patel recently made a statue of Spider-Man. But it’s not just a statue. It’s also a love letter to Spider-Man. Written all over the statue are the artist’s words thanking the character for being an influence for him as a kid.

From the Ted.com write-up:

“Dear Peter Parker, There are a few things I’d like to thank you for. First and foremost thank you for making a mask to cover your face. Thank you for making a suit to cover every inch of your skin. Because of this, I too can be Spider-Man without having to be the Asian Spider-Man or the Indian Spider-Man.”

From a distance, “Letter to Peter Parker” may seem relatively simple. But when you get up close, things get interesting. “The text repeats over and over and essentially thanks Peter Parker for all the reasons I used to relate to him as a kid,” says Hetain Patel. “He helped make me who I am today.”

Patel used fabric paint to create this work. Some of the other things for which he thanks Spider-Man: “Thank you for being skinny and wearing glasses. Thank you for being too shy to talk to girls. Thank you for being bullied and for having the shit knocked out of you.”

Why Spider-Man? “I just feel like he’s more vulnerable than a lot of other superheroes like Batman or Superman,” says Patel. “I think Marvel got it so right with Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He is essentially modeled on all the nerdy kids like me that read the comics.”

You can see more images at the Ted.com site. Heads-up to Puny Parker from our message boards for sending me this!

–George Berryman!

dsci0065-001 1302pHappy birthday to legendary Spider-Man artist John Romita. He’s celebrating 85 years young. In my opinion he’s the default Spider-Man when I think of the character.
If Spider-Man were able to have three fathers it would be Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and John Romita. He was influential is making Spidey the icon he is today. Join me in wishing him a big happy birthday.

Spider-VerseTeam-Up#3--Cover“You have a bad case of crazy, girl.”

Hey, Crawlspacers! It’s your Friendly Neighborhood Amazing Spider-Man reviewer, Stillanerd here doing a special-guest review. This week, there were three other “Spider-Verse” comics published alongside the main series, and today, I’ll be tackling one of them—the final issue of the tie-in mini-series, Spider-Verse Team-Up. So if you want to get mad at what you read here (especially my fellow Spider-Girl fans), then you’ll know who to blame. I’ll promise I’ll be gentle, though.

AmazingSpider-Man(2014)#13--cover“You’re pathetic, old man!”

So after the last page from Amazing Spider-Man (2014) #12 “broke the internet,” what’s the story behind the Uncle Ben with spider-powers? And how did his clothes stay so clean and tidy after a nuclear holocaust? And what’s written in those magic scrolls the Master Weaver pulled out of his mechanical nether-regions? And, if you even care at this point, which “Spider-Man” will be quickly and unceremoniously killed off next? Oh, there are answers to those questions, and the answer to the last one may rile a few Clone Saga fans up something fierce.
