O.K., intrepid readers! Scorpio has a magic key and he’s not afraid to use it. Living Brain/Ock has a crush on Anna Maria and he’s not going to be able to hold it back much longer. We are wrapping up this story arc, folks, and as Scorpio said, he’s seen the future, and Spidey’s not in it. So, hit the read more with care, as this may very well be Spider-Man’s last adventure!
Plus – is there love in Spider-Man’s future? Of course not! Didn’t you pay attention – Scorpio has already told us Spidey’s not in! You really need to read more carefully, you know! Now let’s quite this dilly-dallying and get on with it.

So things are running a little late, (both from publisher and my review) but here we are, The double date issue! It’s a cliché of sitcoms but a lost art in comics. Add in a major guest star with Thor I think we are in for a fun night …
This is a piece about One More Day, but it’s not about the usual controversy. It’s not about anything to do with Mephisto, not does it have anything to do with breaking up Peter and MJ. It’s about something that happened in the second issue on the storyline—an instance of time travel with Doctor Strange—that has interesting ramifications for several of the key storylines in J. Michael Straczynski’s Spider-Man run.
After fending off the horrors of the Battery, the Warriors must now face a horde of angry Venoms. Maybe they discovered how they were treated in Spider-Man 3 and are out for revenge! Let’s find out, in Web Warriors #6…
It’s official, Iron Man will be in the new Spider-Man:Homecoming movie. Variety is reporting that Robert Downey Jr has just signed a deal to co-star in the movie with actor Tom Holland. What are your thoughts?
The recent Batman v Superman movie gets a divided reaction. Some people loved the action and the dark and gritty Batman. Others felt that it wasn’t the characters that they grew up with.
Spider-Man fans are no different. Often, when talking about a particular comic book that was disliked, we hear, “That’s not how Spider-Man acts,” or “That’s not my Spider-Man.” But with a character that has existed over several decades, you start to notice that there are several interpretations of the character. These interpretations are given to us most by writers who have had a considerable run on a Spider-Man title.
When you listen to the podcast *and if you don’t, get to it!), you will hear BD or one of the panelists talk about Peter David’s run on Spider-Man or Howard Mackie’s run or David Michelinie’s run or somebody else. If you are a completist, then you are probably familiar with what they are talking about. However, you may not be able to pull up images in your head for all of these references. If you grew up in the 90s, you may be less familiar with Wolfman’s run or O’Neil’s run. Are you familiar with Kavenaugh’s run? How about DeZago’s? On top of that, several of these writers had several runs on different titles – and often would write differently as they aged.
So what’s a fanboy (or fangirl – not trying to be sexist here) to do? Well, no fear true believers! Compiled below is a list of Spider-Man writers and notable events in their run on the hero.
Already a Marvel zombie? Fill us in on what you feel was left off the list, or not emphasized enough. I envision this as being a fluid resource that we will add to as readers contribute.
‘Nuff said (actually, ‘nuff is not said – you have to click READ MORE)!
The All-New, All-Different Avengers find themselves in Pleasant Hill with their bodies altered and with a whole set of Super Villains ready to take them apart. But don’t worry, Miles and Deadpool have a plan
WRITER: Mark Waid
ARTIST: Adam Kubert
COLOR ARTIST: Sonia Oback with Dono Sanchez Almara
LETTERER: VC’s Cory Petit
COVER ARTIST: Alex Ross
VARIANT COVER ARTIST: Evan “Doc” Shaner
EDITOR: Axel Alonso
STORY: I basically gave the story away from the brief overview, that’s the story folks. The All-New, All-Different Avengers are dropped right in the middle of the aftermath of Uncanny Avengers #8, where Rogue used her powers to wake up her teammates. In doing so, she spread out to the other teams like the ANAD team just in time for an onslaught of super villains to attack them. Miles Morales is the only key to getting them out of trouble since his spider sense was not altered by Kobik (The living Cosmic Cube). Poor Miles is basically used as a compass while the various Avengers try get through to Kobik to help them and it’s Deadpool who ends up saving the day. After all, he’s the “new” Wolverine at Marvel these days, but it’s very effective in how Deadpool turns all of this around, much to Miles’s disagreement. Read the rest of this entry »
This Friday Night Fight involves a Scorpion and a wedding of a long time supporting cast member. Who will win in the end? George takes us through this amazing fight brought you by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz. In this fight we’re looking at Amazing Spider-Man Annual #18 from 1984.
He’s been a Batman. He’s been a Birdman. And now he may don wings once more and take to the skies fighting Spider-Man.
According to Variety, Michael Keaton is in “early talks” to play the villain in the upcoming third Spider-Man reboot – featuring the first MCU Spidey, played by Tom Holland. From Variety:
Sources tell Variety that Keaton is in early talks to play a villain in the Marvel and Sony co-production “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” starring Tom Holland as the latest Spidey.
Marvel and Sony had no comment on the casting.
For Keaton, it also marks a switch from DC Comics to Marvel. The Oscar nominee famously played the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s “Batman” in 1989, causing his career to skyrocket.
The villain Keaton is being eyed to play is also being kept under wraps.
The villain is heavily rumored to be the Vulture, Adrian Toomes. But none of that is confirmed yet. Still, Vulture would be the obvious choice for Sony since previous Spider-films have come close to using Toomes at one point or another.
Amazing Spider-Man 10: Scorpio Rising Part 2 – Power Play
“Cause even if you strip all that other stuff away…I’m still Spider-Man!”
O.K., last issue, Spidey didn’t just jump the shark, he jumped off a satellite and landed safely in Paris. How in the world does anyone top that for big over-the-top moves? Plus, he ended last comic with Scorpio standing over him saying he’s seen the future and he knows Spider-Man will die today. Spidey is beaten and battered from his fall, is out of web fluid (original recipe), and is staring down the barrel of the zodiac key.
Folks, it appears that this is going to be a short issue.
Last issue got a B- from me and a B from Negative Neil (O.K., that’s not his nickname, but I like the alliteration and it sounds like a Stan Lee-y kind of thing to say). Are we both crazy? Will the wackiness continue? Well, you’ll just have to press that Read More link to find out.
That’s the official title of the Marvel produced Sony Spider-Man reboot featuring the MCU Spider-Man, Tom Holland.
Originally, Ashley brought this to our attention on the Facebook Crawlspace Admin page – but we kinda poo-poo’d it, thinking it didn’t pass the smell test and seemed like clickbait. But sure enough, she was right. Or rather the article she linked was right. Then early this morning our reviewer Mohammed/Animehunter posted it on the Crawlspace Reviewers’ Page, linking to an article at WhateverASpiderCan.com by the great Mike McNulty (aka Spectacular Mike, aka Stillanerd, aka Tommy Hot-Pants Jr., aka Jack La Ventura), formerly a reviewer for this site and he who mankind calls ‘Spectacular Mike’ on the podcast each month. From Spectacular Mike:
As reported by The Wrap and Variety, Sony Pictures Chairman, Tom Rothman, and actor Tom Holland, who will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and in the reboot, officially unveiled the title during this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas. As for why they chose Spider-Man: Homecoming, Rothman explained it as thus: “It’s obviously a high school reference and shows Peter Parker’s enduring conflict — saving the world and getting your homework done.”
Mike has more info over at WhateverASpiderCan.com, including possible details about the new villain.*cough*Vulture*cough*
So thanks to Mike, Ashley, Mohammed, The Wrap, Variety and a lot of other websites.

It seems President Obama, a self-confessed Spider-Man fan, got to meet an actual Spider-Man. Former Spider-Man Tobey Maguire hosted a Democratic fundraiser at his home in Brentwood, California. Two tickets will set you back $33,400. The money will help fund the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Reporters were stuck inside Maguire’s garage evidently. Washington Post reporter Juliet Eilperin tweeted this picture of Tobey’s garage with the press inside.

Bleeding Cool stumbled across a tweet from Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott that shows DC is wanting him to write Batman and Superman comics.
Slott says he was offered the big two DC characters but can’t take the gig since he’s still under contract with Marvel until 2018.
What are your thoughts? Would you like Slott off Amazing Spider-Man to tackle Batman and Superman? Discuss in the comment section.
You may remember a story about a Times Square performer dressed as Spider-Man who allegedly kicked a woman who wouldn’t tip him. Ironically, Reporter Roger Stern with New York Radio station 1010WINS filed this report.
Well, 37 year old Abdelamine el-Khezzani had his day in court and he showed up not dressed as Peter Parker, but as Spider-Man. He plead not guilty to the assault charges. The judge wasn’t impressed with the red and blue suit and said “Have you heard the expression ‘Three strikes and you’re out’? If you come to the plate and you strike out a third time, you’re out. This is your second time at bat,” said Justice Laura Ward. After he entered his plea he had another court date earlier this month. I’ll keep you updated, or Uncle Roger will.
JR takes us back ten years and examines Spider-Man: The Other. In this episode JR reviews: *Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man # 4 *Amazing Spider-Man # 528 *Marvel Knights Spider-Man # 22 He also gives an overview of the whole 12 part storyline.
With the recent Batman v Superman movie, superhero fights are all the rage. We here at the Crawlspace know that the only thing better than a superhero fight is when one of those superheroes is Spider-Man. Spider-Man routinely goes around kicking other hero’s butts just for fun. He’ll even do it in their own books. So it is with great pleasure that we finally get to the first actual meeting between the Avengers and Spider-Man and wouldn’t you know it, Spider-Man kicks their butts. For good measure, he even tackles the Hulk.
