spider-man loves mary jane 1!


so, issue one of the 5 issue mini-series hits tomorrow! having a blast doing it, hope folks enjoy it... it's clearly not american manga this go-around, but still a fun and light-hearted style that (if i was successful) suits terry moore's story.

ADDED - and for the folks that have been asking, pages from this issue (and the x-men first class issue) are now up for sale over at comic art house

It's on my list of books to grab this week. May even get the missus to read it, too.

I'm not sad. These are tears of joy. My favorite Spidey book returns. Finally! And by the coolest artist I know. Bonus!

Scott Weinstein said...

Well, for some reason looks like Diamond didn't ship all these books.
My LCBS didn't get a single of the copies of this issue they ordered. (he showed me his list of "did not show")

Hopefully they'll show next week & I'll be able to get it.

Craig-
Bummer that Matt has to work late tonight so we won't get to our LCBS tonight. They BETTER have gotten their shipment but usually when there is a problem with Diamond, they always get shorted.

Can't wait to see this book!

Just finished and I have to say you did an incredible job starting with that fabulous opening splash. Honestly, if someone were to come up to me and offer me the cover or your splash, I would take the splash.

Your style is a perfect fit for this book and I really like your take on the young Peter and MJ as well as the young and very much alive Gwen.

The 'Haps and Spidey Loves MJ, you really are to good to us.

Congratulations, Sir, it could not have happened to a nicer guy.
