Kerry Callen’s more realistic cover for Amazing Fantasy #15

The old joke goes that if Spider-Man really had all the powers and abilities of a spider, he’d shoot web out of his butt. Kerry Callen (Halo and Sprocket) realized making that happen wouldn’t take much tweaking of the cover to Spider-Man’s first appearance.

For comparison, Callen also includes the original cover to Amazing Fantasy #15.



Hmmm, I must get bitten by a radioactive mexican Spider at Chipotle every time I eat there.

The other joke, and I can’t believe I’ve only just noticed this, why is Spider-man revealing his secret identity to the guy he is carrying within earshot?

It just isn’t funny. Maybe if I was six years old.

You ever try to hear someone else talking with the wind rushing by like that? There’s no way that guy could hear anything Pete was saying.

The fact that people can hear each other in this situation every OTHER time it comes up – that’s the joke.

I liked it better when Erik Larsen did the same thing with Widow in Savage Dragon.

I enjoy reading an article that can make men and women think.
Also, many thanks for permitting me to comment!
