dark curly hairs' :eek:

One of my friends (yes I have some) once described his sister to a workmate and he said " My sister's good looking she has white hair and black curly teeth?" The mind boggles.:bigsmile:

Thanks!  Which issue is this from?

Actually I think that this panel was mentioned recently in the current run as being very important to the Kindred identity storyline. P.S I think it is the Gray Goblin answers on a postcard to Osborn industries, RU12 Green Street. Goblin Town Hamilton.:bigsmile:

Spectacular Spider-man #2 1968, one of the best stories of the 1960s but not given its due because it's outside the monthly ASM title.

I’ll take your word for it...haven’t read a Spidey comic since JMS destroyed it with all of the Spider-totem B.S. and the Gwen/Norman Osborn (ahem) romance.

I stopped at 700 but I still keep my ear to the ground for rumours, hey you never know?(thumbsu As for the JMS run I had such high hopes after Babylon 5 I was willing to give him a chance although it seems that he was overid on the actual storyline and that's why he quit. I HATE  to admit it but the real Spidey ended around issue 300 of Amazing.

300? Ended with the creation of Venom? 

You'd be shocked how many people I work with who, when asked, cite Mark Bagley as their favorite Spidey Artist. (these people work in the entertainment industry and generally are not OA collectors)

I stopped at 700  . . . 

I stopped at 200.  I'd been in the British army for six years from 1972 to 1977 and during that time had a three-year posting in Germany, so pretty much had a period where I didn't really have the opportunity to keep up-to-date with the title.  After my de-mob, I bought-up all the back issues and found that I wasn't terribly excited by what I was reading (or looking at, for some artists).  There was one period where Spidey was driving around in what looked like a Beach Buggy (called, The Spider-Mobile, I think) and I just thought to myself, "Super-Hero types take a big stretch of the imagination, but this is just totally nuts . . .  I guess Stan must have said to the writer of the time, "Beach Buggies are cool, let's give Spidey one to drive around walls on!"  :screwy: For me, the Ditko run is classic (he created most of the enduring villains and developed all the characters that once established pretty much wrote themselves).  I like the early John Romita Snr Stuff, as illustrations, but it was clear to me that he was just drawing, whereas Ditko was actively involved in the plotting, writing and development.  I get that people here might not necessarily 'get' Ditko, but you gotta recognize that he set the rule-book for what was to follow . . . even if some joker decided to throw-in a Spider-Mobile.

Yeah I'm a SLOW learner it only took another 400 issues for it to sink in, although I was writing about the storylines and not the art.(thumbsu

I honestly believe the Spider-Mobile stories in 130-131 (and then finally destroyed i believe in ASM 160) was put into stories to help market and sell the spider-mobile TOY CAR that came out for the megos to sit in.
