  • Editorial: “Big Time,” or, “The Illusion of Change”

    Much has been made in the recent past of the question, “What is Spider-Man about?” Tom Brevoort famously declared in his Spider-Man Manifesto, which became the bible of Brand new Day, that Spider-Man was not about responsibility, but about youth.
