Respect

It's nice to see Mrs. Spider-Man get some respect after that heckler a while back, isn't it, Spider-Buddies? Hopefully Spider-Man himself will get some of that respect soon enough, too! Oh wait, the little next box on Sunday said he'd be wanted dead or alive. I guess he'll get things thrown at him instead.

Hey, that janitor's name is Mike! Do you think maybe it's a shout-out to the guy who usually does this blog? No, I don't think so either, but it'd be nice if it was!

I have to do a thing I liked? Well, I liked the whole darn thing, but I guess I like the picture of Spider-Man swinging most of all.

TIL: Spider-Man swinging in panel two.

There we go! Until tomorrow, Spider-Buddies!

Yeah! Land Captain's the greatest!

For the last couple of days the art has looked better and the writing's been a bit better too. What's going on? Did the writer start taking his meds again?

Spidey's motion-lines and the angle of his web don't really line up, do they? Unless he's bungee-ing up out of the crowd to escape the adoration of the thronging masses; otherwise, he should be arcing down and to the left*, probably resulting in the decapitations of several pedestrians and an abrupt end to all that applause.

* Yes, I heard Kevin Costner/Seinfeld there too.

You never know. It may just make them applaud even more.

Artist Larry Lieber (brother of writer Stan Lee, née Stanley Lieber) is nearly 77 years old; I'm impressed that he can still hold a pen.

Didn't Larry Lieber create Superman, too?

Aaron T. said...

Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. One thing they have in common with Stan Lee and Larry Lieber is that they're all Jewish.

It was the Lieber and Siegel that got me confused, thanks.
