Thankfully, Ron Zimmerman has done nothing.

And let's hope it stays that way for a long, long time.

Duncan Fegredo was hand-picked by Mike Mignola to draw Hellboy. So that's what he's currently doing, in a limited series subtitled "Darkness Calls."

Creator bashing

And let's be realistic, he's probably done SOMETHING. He's not just sitting in a blank room all day. And I liked his Tangled Web issues and some other stuff. I haven't read "Get Kraven" but the covers were funny! And I met him at the original Free Comic Book Day in 2002 and he was really nice!

Looks like Ron's working on the Richard Belzer movie "This is America".

But did you read Spider-Man: Get Kraven?

Or the issue of the Punisher where he traveled back in time to kill Al Capone?

Or Spider-Man: Sweet Charity?

Or the Spider-Man - Jay Leno team up?

It's so disgraceful that was one of the last things Greg Capullo ever drew.

*cringes*

to be fair though, I did like Ultimate Adventures myself. I bought all 6 issues for 50 cents an issue during a holiday sale at my LCS. I liked it for what it was, and it was pretty damn good.

It was clearly Zimmerman's best work.

But then, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Do I think a Spider-Man/Jay Leno team-up could be funny and well written?

Yeah.

Was this one?

No.

I wasn't a huge Zimmerman fan. But one isse of Tangled Web made me flip out. I loved it! Can't remember the issue # or anything, but it was where all these villains were sitting around discussing their close calls with Spidey (very "Almost Got Him!" from Batman TAS, now that I think of it), and the ending...i just loved it...maybe I was the only one.

No, you weren't.

I was a big fan of 'Tangled Web'. And that story was pretty damn good, but for the life of me, I can't remember the issue number.

And the ending was surprising and really shocking, if I recall.

wasn't that the one where

Norman Osborne pops up and says "I killed his girlfriend", or whatever and gets up and leaves the bar (and maybe takes off on his glider....?)

Is that the right story?? If not, do you remember that one?

I remember I was a teenage frogman....wasn't that in Tangled Web.

I think they should collect that shit. NOW! The entire series in a nice Omnibus. That would be the shit!

It was collected into 4 trade paperbacks, but I think they're out of print.

I'd like it if they just brought back that series. I totally loved the idea and the format of the series.

Yep, that is the one of which I speak. I remember reading it when I was younger and going..."WOW" at the end and being completely chilled. It was a chilling, menacing little story. I am glad other people appreciated it though, because I never heard anyone else mention it. Wondered if it was just one of those things that I read and fell for but was never actually any good. I loved the Tangled Web series, and for my money that is in the top 5 of their stories. Which is saying alot.

You find it difficult to beleive that someone else could enjoy a comic that you didn't like?

Shwicaz
07-11-2007, 07:37 AM
...really?

yup.

The story was funny as hell, and the art was simply stunning.

People seemed to cry all over the internet about the rawhide kid being gay, etc., but not many of them read it.

Had they done so, they would have found a tale about a gay gunslinger teaching a young boy to respect his father, whom the boy thought was a coward.

Have you read it?

Yes. I used to run a MAX Comics web site, so I read it, categorized it and analyzed it. I thought the story was horrible. The art was decent, but didn't really fit.

I am quoting myself to let you all know the fabulous news.

I got the entire run of Tangled Web of Spider-Man (22 issues worth) for only 9.99 on ebay.

I can wait to dive into those stories.

I thank the board for this thread for reminding me about it.

Tangled Web, what a great series that was.

I highly recommend the J. Bone, Eduardo Risso, Paul Pope, Mahfood, and Fegredo issues.

There is an issue in there by Kaare Andrews that features Spider-Man fighting Electro which is quite good.

'Grats. That's a hell of a deal for such a great series. Almost tragic that such fantastic comics are so damn cheap, meanwhile somewhere some idiot is paying $200 for a Civil War sketch variant. (that's not an attack on Civil War or variants, just morons that'd pay $200 for one)

Ah yes. Flowers for Rhino. A play on Flowers for Algernon.
