Introduction:

Jason was one of our earliest staff members, and was a great motivating force in getting Spider-Fan off the ground. He's since moved on to other things, but his assistance can't be understated.

Collects:

Spider-Man, Batman, Daredevil, Hulk, Spawn, Avengers, JLA, Astro City (and just about anything written by Busiek). I've got boxes and boxes of more recent titles just begging to be bagged-and boarded (I know that must make some of you shudder).

Why Spider-Man:

Ever since I was very, very small I loved super-heroes. My first introduction to Spider-Man were the cartoons, the old solo ones. I would watch those all the time, and crawl around my room, pretending the floor was the wall. For Halloween, my Mom had to buy me two Spidey outfits; one for Halloween, and one for the weeks of before-holiday wearing. She couldn't get it off me! As I grew up, my interest in heroes grew, but Spider-Man always held a special place in my heart. Through several comic-collecting phases in my youth, I kept tabs on Spidey and his escapades. When I graduated college and could afford to be a grown-child on my own ticket, I did three things; bought myself a whole tube of chocolate-chip cookie dough, ran around the house in my underwear, (apology for the horrific mental image), and started collecting comics again! I picked up Spidey right around the time Peter Parker was in jail for murder, and it's been a frantic ride ever since! My favorite hobby now is bitching about the Spider-Man comics to anyone who'll listen.

I think the reason Spider-Man is so attractive as a comics character is this; even though he's got incredible super-powers, he's still a total screw-up. Being a screw-up is definitely something we can identify with (well, I can anyway).

Favourites:

Death of Gwen Stacy, and the events immediately preceding and following it. I think it was a first in comics, and it was one of the few deaths in Spider-Man continuity that hasn't been ret-conned (clones not withstanding). But don't say anything to Marvel, they might dig her up again!
