  1. That’s just…nasty.

  2. Boy, Joe Quesada’s editorial decisions really got out of hand.

  3. He really let himself go.

  4. Oh, Pete… *sigh* Just hand it to Miguel, nobody’s taking you serously as a hero anymore. For shame.

  5. At least he can’t fit in the Iron Spider outfit again!

  6. Wait, did they start up the Spider-Man Clone Saga again? And here, I didn’t think it could have gotten any worse.

  7. spider man by the author of “where the wild things are”.

    Why do I get the feeling that spider-man has the face of the artist’s landlord?
    BTW, is that artist Basil Wolverton?

  9. Impressive, Reader Kate! Yes, that’s Basil Wolverton, doing one of the backup adventures in “Amazing Mystery Funnies” back in 1939. I love stumbling across stuff like this while doing the Random Panels, like the Frank Frazetta “True Hero” story the other day.
