About the Spider-man ride @ Universal Studios.

The one problem with the ride is that you are in the hostage view-point. You don't get to see the fight, you're too busy focusing on what is happening to you. It's not fair.

Actually, what isn't fair is begging in the streets after the death of your husband in some pointless local war, being denied basic rights because of your gender, race, cuture, or sheer bad luck. Being trapped in an endless cycle of dehumanising poverty while watching the trusting happiness of your children's eyes fade too soon, to be replaced by fear, anger and loathing - all the while catching glimpses like sun-glint on the unforgiving sand of distant gardens in far off lands - seeing but unseen by the passing wealthy strangers who will one day kick the dust on your unmarked paupers grave, where you lie unsung, unwanted, and finally without meaning... having never visited Universal Studios at all.

From Otman

I have a little question: Who is the spiritual father of Spiderman?

Will Eisner.

From zimmy

i have black & white line illustrations, and i need to find a decent colorist that can scan the images and color them in ?photoshop or ?illustrator?

can you refer me to such a freelance colorist? if not, where might i look? is there a website or publication that i could advertise in?

What's that? You're having trouble coloring in? Heh, I can see from that sample you sent... you're having one heck of a tough time keeping the crayon inside the lines.

From anonymous

In addition to being the bibliographer of the "Jews in Comics" webpage, I am also the bibliographer for the "Librarians in Comics" webapage. I seem to have had a neglected childhood. I never read Spidey Super Stroies and hadn't realized they had 3 comic stories with librarians in them. 3 shelves of books? How absurd indeed!

It's funny you should mention that. I had an email last week from the "Elocution Instructors named Brian under 5' 3" in Comic" web page last week. He was complaining that he had been running the page for four years now, and apart from a single panel in that early "Weasel & Mavis go Shopping" limited series, he hadn't found anything to write about. Count yourself lucky!

On the cover page of Amazing Spider-man #121, spider-man says that the green goblin killed the only girl he'll ever love (Gwen Stacy), i thought spider-man loved MJ not gwen! it's a disgrace! MJ is the only one for spider-man anyway, WHY DOES IT SAY THAT?!?!?!!!!?!????
