Spider-Man Gets His Butt Whupped Week - preview
Spider-Man is my favorite superhero. Tomorrow, his flagship title, The Amazing Spider-Man, reaches its 600th issue, so I'm decided to post a week-long series of drawings celebrating Peter Parker's more colorful alter ego.
What's one of the things we love most about Spidey? His perseverance. His tenacity. His drive to keep fighting, no matter how overwhelming the odds. How he takes a liken', but keeps on tickin'.
Another great thing about Spider-Man is his fantastic roster of villains, arguably the best in comics, inarguably one of the best two (most would probably give Batman's loony louses the top spot). The web-head's colorful criminals are a compelling group of nutjobs who are also pack a visual punch.
So, starting tomorrow and for the next seven days, we'll highlight these two aspects of the Spidey charm by presenting a series of drawings of some of Spider-Man's most fearsome foes handing him his hat. See you tomorrow, true believers, for day one of Spider-Man Gets His Butt Whupped Week!
