  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 9: The Secret

    Our lookback at Gwen resumes after a lengthy break! Between “Spidey Revisions”, “Spidey Memories” and other projects, I’ve neglected the very series that made Brad give me posting access! It’s been a delay between parts due to a combination of formatting issues and other problems. As I said before, this…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 8: Problems Begin

We all…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 7: Special Interlude

    We are going to take a small interlude in our Gwen/Peter saga. As I said before, I will be posting all of Gwen’s appearances in “Amazing” during her lifetime (some of the post-death stuff will be in later parts). Since I am doing every last panel, it is prudent…

    We are now in the heart of the Lee/Romita era! Peter and Gwen are having the first of their many soap operatic spats and breakups. Join us as we finally see them admit their feelings for eachother. All this and MJ’s awful awful awful haircut! Remember where we last…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 5: First Fight

    I suppose I’m a bit late here. These were originally intended to be churned out a few times a week, but that hasn’t been the case. Sad thing is, out of the all the online projects (blogs, podcasts, editing) this should be the easiest as I’m merely converting a…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 3: Betty and Veronica

    This was suppose to be posted Monday, but I was  having some computer problems and couldn’t load the images properly. I post the next part this weekend and then we’ll go back to the Monday/Friday schedule. We are now entering the era that many creators fondly remember. I can’t…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 2: Romita Takes Over

    Steve Ditko is off of the Spider-Man series and in his place we have John Romita. I will not go into the circumstances of Ditko’s departure because the endless speculation has been done elsewhere. John Romita was choosen to replace him, probably in some ways due to his great…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 1: Ditko’s Gwen

    Oh Ditko’s Gwen. You sure were a feisty one weren’t you? We are going to hit the ground running by looking at all of Gwen’s appearances in the Steve Ditko run. It’s amazing (no pun intended) how we go from who we see above, to who we see eventually…

  • Finding Gwen Stacy part 0.5: Introduction

    What do Gwen Stacy and Scans Daily have in common? They’re both dead. Ironically enough both have had clones and imitators show up since their demise. This blog series will ask and attempt to answer the question “Who is Gwen Stacy”. She is best known for dying. The story…
