  • Cobwebs #11: Personals

    So you want to be a comic book writer.  Or an artist.  Or an inker.  Or even a letterer.  You don’t care, you just want to break in.  But how does one go about doing that? Breaking into the business can be very hard indeed.  If you are a…

  • 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…

  • Cobwebs #9: Where’s My Schwinn?!

  • Cobwebs: Golden Age Spider-Man

    With all the Spider-Verse stories we just lived through and now reliving the experience (because you demanded it!) in Secret Wars, one might wonder how many Spider-Men are there? We have Spider-Cowboy, Spider-Ham, Spider-Men from the future, Spider-Men from the past, a Spider-Man who fight bad guys with Hostess…
