Did Spider-Man Lose His Virginity In Stan Lee's Film Pitch?

 


I'm revisiting Stan Lee's 1990 attempt to pitch a Spider-Man movie at CBR this week, which does indeed feature the deflowering of one Peter Benjamin Parker. And I feel vindicated now, guessing all those years ago, that the Stan Lee/Peter David story in the Ultimate Spider-Man anthology was in fact an adaptation of this treatment.

Top Cow's Battle of the Planets Ended With a Ridiculous Cliffhanger

 


Alex Ross and Top Cow united in 2003 to revive Battle of the Planets for the new millennium, but this week I examine why the story remains incomplete. And if you guys know of anyone else interested in these '80s revival comics of the early aughts, it never hurts to spread the links around...
