Here, check it out.
I've been reading through the back pages this week (it only goes back through March), and he has a lot of interesting stories from behind the scenes of Marvel Comics in the 70s and 80s. I know Shooter's been a controversial figure over the years, and some of his blog is telling his side of the story. But none of it comes across as self-serving to me. What I get from his blog is stories from a guy who passionately loves comic books and has a tremendous talent. Now that we're so far removed from the controversies of his tenure at Marvel, it's interesting, even important, to get his perspective on it, too.
When I saw this, I just had to read it. I knew Spidey had a black costume because I'd read earlier comics on and off (my friend Shane had the "Kraven's Last Hunt" story, and the annual where Peter and Mary Jane got married, all of which I'd read), but the Todd McFarlane art was so different from anything else I'd seen.
