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.

This is real and I received my very own this past Christmas. This hand painted Spider-Man Garden Brick not only looks fashionable in your garden or house but it also lights up. No really, it has a small 2″ solar powered rechargeable LED that lights up in the dark at night.

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.

NOT A HOAX…. OR IMAGINARY DREAM!
images2-600x327Bleeding Cool and other outlets are reporting, but starting with Marvel 2015 Secret Wars, The Marvel Universe, as you and I know it… is over. The Ultimate and Marvel Universes will collide into one universe.There is an interactive Map at Marvel.com that shows the battleworld, in it’s various forms. We’ll see what happens now. But it looks like if there is a teaser, there is a book. Much more is coming between now and May, but it all begins in issue one of Secret Wars. Are YOU picking it up? Talk to us in the comments section!
EDIT: Just to Clarify… this is a line wide reboot. The two universes will not longer exist, as BattleWorld replaces everything. More on this as it comes.

Is there such a thing as to many Spider’s? HAS Spider-Verse finally gotten to the point where you start rooting for the exterminators, or are you still rooting for the ragtag group of web-headed wonders?

spider_verse_team_up__3_by_pryce14-d83l6vtLegendary Spider-Man writer Tom Defalco is asking for your help. Mayday Parker will appear in Spider-Verse Team Up # 3. Tom will be writing the story and another Spider-legend Ron Frenz will be penciling it. As if two Spider-legends aren’t enough, Sal Busema will be inking it. DeFalco recently posted on the Spider-Girl message board that buying extra copies of that book is a great sign to Marvel that our girl still has selling power.

Attention all SPIDER-GIRL fans, please mark January 21 on your calendars. SPIDER-VERSE TEAM-UP #3 goes on sale and features an all-new SPIDER-GIRL story by Ron Frenz, Sal Buscema and me.

We want this book to sell out and go back to press so please spread the word. Let’s show MARVEL that our girl still has an audience

I know some of you aren’t very happy with certain recent developments, but—TRUST ME—this story may ease your fears and bring a smile to your face! ( And, perhaps, a tear to your eyes.)

Thanks for being there!
Tom D.

 

Ron,Tom&Sal in BaltimoreThe book comes out on January 21st. So head down to your local comic shop and ask for a copy, or three. Who’s up for more Mayday? Ron recently posted this picture of the three legends. 

 

10806414_10204551119591291_259474474298672741_nLegendary Spider-Man artist Erik Larsen is needing your help. He recently posted on his Facebook page a beautiful image of Spidey and some friends. He has no idea where the image appeared or if ever saw print? Have you seen thise piece before? Do you know where it was printed? If so leave a comment below.  It’s an awesome piece and a shame that it isn’t more well known. Larsen suspects it is from the early 2000’s when he briefly returned to Amazing Spider-Man. 

Drake Bell, the voice of Spider-Man in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon has had a bad couple of months. In November he was at a birthday party and dove into the his brothers pool. According to TMZ he hit the bottom of the pool and broke his wrist. He had surgery and the site is reporting that he won’t be able to play his guitar again. 
Then in December tragedy hit again. His online feud with Justin Bieber hit a new level. Fans of the Bieb allegedly hacked Bell’s Twitter and Instagram account. This after Bell posted his Christmas wish was for “the eradication of all Beliebers even on Christmas they are sending me death threats and hate!! It’s freakin Christmas!” And you thought Peter Parker had bad luck. 

AmazingSpider-Man(2014)#12--cover“As far as I’m concerned, you’re all fakes.”

It’s the first Amazing Spider-Man comic of the year, but the fourth chapter of the spider-extravaganza known as “Spider-Verse.” Which means more new Spider-Men from other dimensions, more of those Spider-Men being killed, and the arrival of one character who was billed as “the most surprising Spider-Character yet” who’s last-page reveal was hyped to “break the internet in half!”
