Webslinger: Unauthorized Essays On Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man by Gerry Conway

about

The tangled web of vengeance, love, and loss woven by Spider-Man comics and films is explored in this collection of insightful essays by acclaimed writers of comics and science fiction and edited by Spider-Man comic writer Gerry Conway.

A variety of topics-from the superhero’s sarcasm to the science behind radioactive spiders-are discussed in essays on Turning Rage into Responsibility: A Psychology of Loss,” Love Is Selfish: Can a Hero Afford Personal Attachments?,” and Self Identity and Costume Design.” The popular rival Green Goblin, the bumbling-yet-influential media, and the part New York City itself plays in stories are skillfully explored, as well as the overall philosophy of mild-mannered Peter Parker and Spidey’s relationship with the rest of the characters in the Marvel universe.
