Spider-Man by AdamWithers Spider-Man by AdamWithers
Spidey and his rogues, a very special commission for a very special kid. Comfort and I were contacted by a guy we've done some work for in the past, and he wanted to get something for a family friend, Zac - a very young boy in the hospital with Leukemia. Because of his situation, it was obviously time-sensetive; we dropped everything we were doing and made this our highest priority.

We went a little crazy with it, I'll be honest, but it happened to be two things: 1) a picture for a good cause that could make somebody smile who really needed it, and 2) a picture I've personally wanted to do for a long time anyway. Sometimes things converge in such a way as you get to do what you want AND do it for a good reason. :)

Anyway, this is the result. I'm really proud of what Comf and I made, here. And Zac is doing well, day by day, so that's good to know.

Villains (Approximately L to R): Kingpin, Dr. Octopus, Rhino, Mysterio, Shocker, Vulture, Chameleon, Venom, Kraven, Electro, Hydro-Man, Carnage, Sandman, Tombstone, Scorpion, Morbius, Jack-O-Lantern, Lizard, Green Goblin.

*chuckles* KingPin looks like he's saying, "Did he just 'swing' by us?"

Because they aren't interested in me. I've generally stopped trying - I produce my own comics now: The Uniques and Rainbow in the Dark. Look 'em up; you can get the first issues free from their websites. :)

Another reason why you two are my favorite creators in all of comics. Thank you once again for giving me faith (no matter how faint) in humanity. :D

Yeah, well... somebody's gotta do it. Glad I could help, because I often have so little of that faith myself. Ask Comfort how often I say "I hate people. Just... all of them." :shrug:

You gotta be my brother from another mother. You need to ask Amanda how often I say the same thing!

Yay indeed. For all the hate, I think it could be a pretty alright film. Too soon for a reboot? Probably. But still, no reason it has to be a bad thing.

mh- i'll see it just like the batman-movies.
Tim Burtons style vs. Nolans style

both a similiar story
both different
both were all right to watch
