    Cobwebs #32: Kingpin Santa!

    You better watch out!  You better not pout!  You better not cry I’m telling you why.  Wilson Fisk is coming to town!  That’s right readers, leave out the milk and cookies because you don’t want to tick off Kingpin Santa when he comes to your house this Christmas Eve!…

  • 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 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…

  • 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: Time to Be Thankful

    Ah! Thanksgiving!  At this time of year when our thoughts go to traditions like being with family, over eating, starting the Christmas shopping season, blowing up Diet Coke bottles with Mentos (maybe only my weird family tradition?), and, of course, watching large inflatable versions of Spider-Man float through New…

  • Happy 43rd Birthday George Berryman

    Join me in wishing a happy 43rd birthday to the Crawlspace’s own George Berryman. He’s a great member of this site and puts in many hours of work, but he’s an even better friend. Thank you for everything you do on the site and the podcast.  In other related…

  • Happy 85th Birthday John Romita

    Happy 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…

    “With All These Candles, We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Cake!!” Our illustrious webmaster and Crawlspace head honcho Brad Douglas celebrates his 40th-minus-1 birthday today! Brad does a whole lot to spread Spider-Love all across the Intrernets, so take a moment and drop BD a line to tell ‘im Happy…

    84 years ago today, one of the greatest and most influential comic book artists of all time was born. From all of us here at the Crawlspace, and from Spider-Man fans around the world–happy birthday, “Jazzy” John Romita Sr, and many more!
