SFOESCNCLVia CBR.

November brings the last issues of the excellent Superior Foes of Spider-Man and the story-challenged New Warriors, which features Kaine.

Superior ends with #17, New Warriors ends with #12.

Either way, congrats to both titles for getting to #12 without being rebooted and/or renumbered.

And congrats to Nick Spencer, Steve Lieber and all the folks who brought us Superior Foes. I cannot stress how excellent the series was. Hopefully we’ll get to see more from the Sinister Several someday!

–George Berryman!

ElectroMomAs I reported earlier, there at least over 20 minutes of deleted scenes from the upcoming Blu-Ray/DVD release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Well, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies UK, Sony had given them an “exclusive” deleted scene, this one featuring a pre-Electro Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) and his bed-ridden, verbally abusive mom, which you can watch HERE.

They also have made available a behind-the-scenes clip showing the make-up process involved in turning Jamie Foxx into Electro.

Personally, while I do think the deleted scene gives Max Dillon additional motivation for why he goes off the deep end when he becomes Electro, I’m glad this ended up being cut from the final film for several reasons. First because had it been included, the beats in the scene where Max is celebrating his birthday would have been far too long. Second, it would have felt redundant since we get a similar scene with Max at OsCorp minutes later. And finally, because this scene comes off as mean-spirited, if not downright offensive, instead of comical as was clearly intended.

However, if you disagree, or have any thoughts about the deleted scene in general, or about the pain-staking make-up process Foxx underwent, feel free to comment down below.

supermansrASM001COBRASpider-Man legend John Romita has penciled his first Superman cover in his historic career. His son John Romita Jr. is penciling the main Superman book, so it’s only natural for the father to come out of retirement to pencil the variant cover of Superman #34. The cover looks very similar to the Amazing Spider-Man # 1 variant that recently came out. The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with Romita Senior, check it out.

Yep, right from Mtv News, Brian Michael Bendis is sending Flash Thompason (The current Venom) and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy to the Planet of the Symbiotes.

“I looked it up and I was like no, there’s been a planet we’ve seen taken over by symbiotes, but have we not seen the planet of the symbiotes?” Bendis said. “I called [Marvel Senior Vice President Of Publishing] Tom Brevoort, I go, could it be that even in the craziness of the ’90s when it was Venom, Venom, Venom every five seconds, that this story has not been told? And he goes, yeah we’ve never been there. And I’m like, now I have to do it! It’s crazy.”

“It will be a planet full of symbiotes,” Editor Mark Marts added on what to expect from the story, “But beyond that, it’s a lot of mystery. But we will be adding to the symbiote mythology in ways the average reader won’t expect at all.”

We finally learn the full story behind the hijackjed ninja schoolbus from several issues past as Overdrive explains what he and Beetle were up to while searching for Fred.

spidey_8a1Every year to celebrate the anniversary of the website and podcast by taking live callers on our podcast. We’ll start taking callers this Friday at 9pm central time. If you’d like to be on the show and ask the panel a question here is your chance. Here’s how it works. Download Skype and add the handle webheadspidey. I’ll then add you to a “green room” where you’ll hang out with the other callers waiting to get on.

Our buddy Zack aka Spideydude will be in the room handling the crowd. Also please remember, don’t call me when you get on. I’ll see you get online and I’ll add you to the green room manually. By calling it messes up my recording and stops it. I look forward to talking to you all this Friday at 9pm central time. Please have your question ready. Make sure it’s short and to the point. 

spider-girl-gpI’m wanting to add a female voice on the podcast. The ideal lady would be a regular reader of the current books and is familiar with the history of the character. She also needs to have a fun personality that comes through the speakers. If that describes you, please send me an e-mail at crawlspacemail@gmail.com   

AXIS-Inversion-new-costumes
Marvel held a press conference today about the upcoming Marvel NOW changes and how what happens in the AXIS crossover leads several of the heroes and villains on their new paths. Pretty much the Red Skull with the powers of Onslaught inverts the heroes and villains turning them into who they once were or evolving them to their worse states. When asked about the Hobgoblin by Word Balloon, Rick Remender could not reveal what happens to Kingsley.

“I think that anything about him kills the reveal of him during Inversion and his tie-in mini-series. Sorry, John, didn’t mean to pick yours as the one with no answer.”

The Hobgoblin looks almost demonic in his inverted state. Thoughts on what the Red Skull does to Kingsley?

Times-Square-SpideyJust when you thought it couldn’t get any more crazy with costumed New York City street-performers dressed as the web-head, the authorities have essentially said, “Enough is enough!” As reported by Reuters News Service, the NYPD have begun to get tough on costumed characters harassing soli money from tourists in an initiative called “Operation: Character Flaw.”

New York police have begun handing out fliers to tourists in Times Square telling them that tipping the costumed superheroes and children’s characters who pose for photographs is optional, and to call the 911 emergency number if they have complaints.

The fliers are part of an aggressive crackdown after a string of arrests of people dressed as characters who have gotten into confrontations with tourists or police, including one dressed as Spider-Man charged last month with punching a police officer who intervened in a tipping dispute.

“Tipping is optional,” the fliers say in capital letters, printed in five languages in partnership with the Times Square Alliance, which promotes area businesses. “If you have any complaints, talk to a police officer or call 911.”

Police said they arrested three more characters on Saturday, the first day the fliers were handed out: men dressed as Spider-Man, Iron Man and Elmo. Police also gave another man dressed as Iron Man a court summons.

All were charged with disorderly conduct for obstructing pedestrian traffic, while the man dressed as Spider-Man faces an additional charge of aggressive solicitation.

AmazingSpider-Man#121As part of their 75th Anniversary celebration, Marvel took to social media to ask fans to choose  “the 75 greatest comics in the history of the House of Ideas” to be considered for their upcoming Marvel 75th Anniversary Omnibus. After several months and “thousands of responses,” people chose a Spider-Man comic as number one–”The Night Gwen Stacy Died,” Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #121, which (along with Amazing Spider-Man #122) is regarded as not only a monumental moment in Spider-Man history, but also the “end” of the Silver Age of Comics.

Along with the Death of Gwen Stacy, there were twelve additional Spider-Man stories which made it to the final list, which is available at Marvel.com and printed in full below the cut:

It’s hard to believe it’s been 16 years since I created this website. I started it in college on my old Windows 95 computer, which only had 1.6 gig of hard drive space. The day was August 8, 1998 and I just signed up for free hosting from geocities. Fast forward 16 years I’m now writing this on my phone, I’m now a father and have had millions of people visit this Crawlspace over the years. I thank you all for your continued support and I don’t see closing the doors anytime soon. Do you have a favorite memory of the site? Share it in the comments. Also here’s a screen cap of what the site looked like in 1999.

Apparently ‘Game of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams (aka Arya Stark) is a Spidey fan. Like Daniel Radcliffe, she also showed up at the San Diego Comic Con to represent with the Spider-love and posted pictures to Tumblr.

Thwipp On, Arya!
