Spidey fights The Funny Bunny

We interrupt our scheduled issue of Super Spidey-Man to bring you a special treat for you all this Easter

How about we get in a better writer for Super Spidey-Man?

And we have managed to get the writer without whom the massive blockbuster Super-hero movie, Marvel's The Avengers would have not existed and has a whole "universe" named after him with creations such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Angel", "Serenity", "Firefly" and many more

No, NOT Joss Whedon... but it is his Father, Tom Whedon who also wrote some great scripts as well

But, you can probably guess, this is absolutely not one of those scripts...

So why do I think there was a Empire Strikes back like moment when Tom Said, "Joss I AM YOUR FATHER?!..."

"It can't be that bad, can it?" You may ask

Well, all I know is I couldn't stop laughing long enough to be able to actually reproduce these pages, so these are the originals and in colour no less

Happy Easter

And yes there are plenty more examples of "Whedon Magic" yet to be unleashed in the future

NEXT WEEK:- Honestly, this time it will be Super Spidey-Man Issue 3 as promised last week

Super Spidey-Man Issue 2

Say, do you like Marvels 1970's Star Wars comics?

Do you like Peter Parker as Spider Man?

Well here, you can have BOTH in one far out comic!

It's back to the past twice over, first to not that long ago February 2014, and then way back to sometime in the late 1970s.... with Super-Spidey Man Issue 2!

This issue includes part 2 of STAR JAWS guest starring Marvel Boy and Paul the Gorilla

BONUS to explain the appearance of Rita the Director (as she appears unnamed in STAR JAWS) the back up strip is "Lights, Camera, Oops!"

This issue also does NOT feature a guest appearance from Alan Moore...

I hope you enjoy it

NEXT WEEK:- Super Spidey-Man! Issue 3

Super Spidey-Man! Issue 1

Let's flash back to 1970's - when Marvel UK did not publish the comic that follows, but maybe they should have done?

It's Super Spidey-Man! Issue 1 - as originally published in January 2014

Containing part one of STAR JAWS - plus a few extra things not seen on this blog before...

I hope you enjoy it

NEXT WEEK: Issue 2 of Super Spidey-Man!

Apeslayer dies at dawn!

Before we continue here is "the story so far" page from UK POTA 30 which included the Ape slayer strip following

(Yes this is the same drawing as used for the cover of UK POTA 29, as seen last week...)

And now we will conclude our journey into this fractured mirror universe, with as usual, the original Kill Raven on the left and the "degraded" Ape Slayer on on the right

This brings the story of Ape Slayer to a end, his appearance within the UK POTA as an redressed "Apes" strip met with such disdain that this experiment was never tried again. 

There is of course a lot more material for Kill Raven, that could be converted, most notably a long run with P Craig Russell, maybe, just maybe Ape Slayer will return, if you want him to


NEXT WEEK:- Super-Spidey Man Returns!

The Mutant Slayers!

Before we continue, here is the cover of UK POTA 29, which featured the Ape Slayer strip reproduced below:-

(We will see this image again, next week...)

And now we continue, and as usual the original Kill Raven appears on the left and the "degraded" Ape Slayer appears on the right:-

NEXT WEEK:- It's the FINAL chapter of Kill Raven Vs Ape Slayer and you will not believe what happens next!
