REVIEW Comics Creators on Spider-Man 107

DOWNLOAD Comics Creators on Spider-Man

E of Spider Man and give insight into the creative process. I ve never been a big Spider Man fan but I so enjoyed Comics Creators on the Fantastic Four that I thought I d give this book a tryThis is a splendid book of interviews with writers and artists that covers the development of Spider man from the early Sixties to about 2002I was impressed with the high level of seriousness and commitment all the interviewees displayed All concerned here clearly had an attachment to Spider Man and valued their opportunity to work on Marvel s flagship characterThe biggest surprise was that a lot of these men had worked on Batman for DC and the comparison between Batman and Spider Man freuently came up I was most struck by Paul Jenkins comment that the two are a metaphor for divorce for that time when a child is told that he can never see a parent again The difference according to Jenkins is that Batman can never get over that moment and is always reliving it while Spider Man or Peter Parker as the interviewees refer to him most of the time has the resilience to get beyond that trauma and grow as a personHighly recommended to anyone interested in comics

Es involved in bringing the web slinger to life on the pag. I m a big web spinning Spider Man fanboy no doubt about it And to that geek this book rocks hard It s a 200 page series of interviews with some of the biggest creators of Spider Man comic books over the past 40 years from Stan Lee to Todd McFarlane to Brian Bendis And it s just packed full of trivia insight and critiues I really get into these behind the scenes comic tomes and this one s a winner There s great comments by Lee on the creation of Spidey as well as really thorough interviews with the writers I grew up on Len Wein Marv Wolfman and the underrated Roger Stern who for my money wrote the best Spider Man stories of all in the mid 1980s We learn what went on behind the scenes with some classic stories and get each writer and artist s thoughts on what makes Spidey tickI particularly enjoyed how Comic Creators isn t some glossy tribute that overlooked the bad It s compiled and the interviews are conducted by longtime Spidey writer Tom DeFalco who comes at the subject with an insider s eye Creators are pretty free with thoughts here on stories that didn t work and the late 1990s nadir for Spider Man comics the bloated bleak Clone saga and Maximum Carnage eras come in for a well deserved beating Everyone involved seems to blame the disaster on Marvel editorial dictates For instance David Micheline writer of Amazing Spider Man at the time when there was a rather lousy storyline involving the possible return of Peter Parker s long dead parents reveals that he was forced to bring them back by an editor who apparently didn t even know how to end the storyline himself The book does a good job showing how Spidey s appeal has kept up through the years and gives you an insight into the creative process

    It must be said the cover price for this (and the others in the range) is ridiculously high! I do have a solution, however, try the 'marketplace' used book sellers like I did!! The books arrived promptly and in virtually perfect condition for a fraction of that original price! The book itself is a geek fest! Wonderful insights into almost all eras of Spider Man production It is a 'warts and all' tome too, not afraid to admit where the com

    Great book and a lot of facts are given to the reader Some questions seem to be very similar to each other but if you want background info on spidey then this book is highly recommended.
