Happy 50th, Spider-Man!
My second-favorite superhero ever of all-time ever hits the big five-oh today.
At least it was 50 years ago this month that Spidey made his debut in Amazing Fantasy #15. I've always dug Spider-Man, even if I didn't actively read his comics as a kid. Instead, I watched his cartoons on TV and had this Mead folder and listened to this book/record set over and over...
Sam Raimi's film trilogy of the '00s was pretty awesome (the first two, anyway). I was really looking forward to this summer's reboot, but was pretty much underwhelmed by its cliches and redundancy and general pointlessness. Still, I'll probably watch it again sometime.
