Gerry Conway Vies For A Seat At ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Premiere; Sony Pictures Yet To Respond

The Amazing Spider-Man 121 main

If early reports are accurate, one of writer Gerry Conway's most famous Spider-Man stories has been adapted in the new The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie. Yet the studio behind the movie, Sony Pictures, has yet to contact or acknowledge the writer.

According to a post on Marvel Comics: The Untold Story author Sean Howe's Tumblr, Conway has been vying for a seat at the movie's premiere, even starting up a Twitter hashtag (#inviteGerryConway) to rally support. (Though Conway later undercut just how real the campaign is, calling it only "partly serious.")

Holiday Gift Guide: ‘Spider-Man: Rock Reflections Of A Superhero’

Spider-Man: Rock Reflections Of A Superhero

When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

On the off chance that you're buying a gift for someone who likes Spider-Man and rolicking, non-theatrical musicals, don't bother with that whole Broadway fiasco. Instead, grab the original Spider-Man musical from 1975, in which Doctor Octopus sings a song about finally defeating the Silver Surfer.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Arcade Fire, the Fresh Prince, Humpty Hump and More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
