    Semi-Benevolent Crawlspace Overlord Brad Douglas turns 42 years young today. And by “young” I mean “eight years away from Fifty.” It’s been a big year for Brad. He’s changed careers after almost two decades as a trusted name in news (a dying breed in these trying times) and he’s…

  • Spider-Man Halloween Prank

    Spider-Man Halloween Prank

    Youtube User Tom Mabe decided he’d pull a Spider-Man prank this Halloween. He visited peoples home with a doll dressed in a Spider-Man costume. He then told the residents that his son was deaf. I’m not a fan of lying to the people but it is fun to see…

  • Happy 89th Birthday Steve Ditko

    Happy 89th Birthday Steve Ditko

      Spider-Man’s co-creator is turning 89 years old today. If it wasn’t for Ditko’s designs matched with Stan Lee’s amazing words this website would not be here. It’s amazing to think how much joy Spider-Man has brought me over the years and so much of that joy is from Ditko.…

  • Vintage Spider-Man Halloween Costume Ads

    Vintage Spider-Man Halloween Costume Ads

    As someone who wore this Spidey costume back in the 1970s, I can tell you they weren’t comfy. The air holes in the mask made it impossible to breath. However it sure brings back a lot of good memories. I’m sure I saw these as a kid and asked…

  • Happy 18th Birthday Crawlspace

    Happy 18th Birthday Crawlspace

    It’s hard to believe that this little website that I created back in college is now old enough to vote. And with this election season, every vote counts. I started the site back in 1998 with a Windows 95 computer and a dial up connection. I stumbled across geocities…

  • Happy Birthday, Ashley!!

    Happy Birthday, Ashley!!

    Brad’s out of town and I am about to head out of town – and this kinda snuck up on us! So unfortunately I don’t have a new birthday image for this year – so instead we’ll have to go with the one from last year and pretend it’s…

  • Perler Bead Spider-Man Civil War

    Perler Bead Spider-Man Civil War

    Hey Everyone.  See what I did there? Yeah, it was a bad pun, but seriously everyone. This weekend, I created my own Spider-Man from Captain America: Civil War with Cap’s famous shield in hand. After two hours and made out of 2,259 Perler Beads and measuring at 12 X…

  • Happy 44th Birthday to George Berryman!

    Happy 44th Birthday to George Berryman!

    Our good friend, podcast panelist and Texas native George Berryman is celebrating a birthday today. He’s turning the big 44 today. Since he’s the biggest Stegron fan I’ve ever know, I thought a Photoshop was in store. I never thought about it but Stegron’s tongue maybe as dangerous as…

    Weird Marvel Collectable #119

    Build-a-Bear now has a Miles Morales Bear.  It isn’t customizable and comes pre-stuffed, but hey, it’s a Miles Morales bear.  I wonder if it has a little electric shock in the hands to mimic the venom sting? http://www.buildabear.com/shopping/store/Marvel-Mega-Minis-Miles-Morales-Bear/productId=prod11650002

    Amazing Spider-Man 3: What Could of Been

    It’s easy to forget, particularly in the excitement of the new Peter Parker’s reveal in Captain America: Civil War, that Sony and Marc Webb initially intended to make a longer Spider-Man series. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was supposed to come out this summer, and though plenty of fans were happy enough to…

  • Beady Spidey

    Beady Spidey

    Our own Ryan Reed sent me a very nice gift in the mail. It’s a giant Deadpool, Miles and Spidey in the Poolmobile as seen in Spider-Man/Deadpool #2. He also made very cool Miles, 2099, Gwen and Spidey heads. I’ve put them on my computer. If you’re interested in…

  • Tangled Webs: The Mature Readers Spider-Man Spinoffs

    While there are current controversies about R-rated superhero movies, with the financial success of DEADPOOL, Netflix’s slate of Mature Audiences Marvel shows and the upcoming R-rated Directors Cut of SUPERMAN VS BATMAN, Spider-Man generally has a reputation as one of the most kid-friendly comic book series. But there have…

  • Happy 41st Birthday, Brad!

    Our Chairman of the Board and Head Webhead turns 41 years old today! Since I have been busy with work, Brad’s birthday sort of snuck up on me this year so I didn’t have time to Photoshop something. But here’s a picture of Brad from last year, back when…

  • Cobwebs #10: Still a Better Love Story…

    Here it is, another year down and time for introspection, resolutions, and hopeful enthusiasm for the year to come.  I wanted to do another holiday themed  post, but the biggest New Year’s Eve reference to Spider-Man was dealing with a promo for Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I just couldn’t…
