How Stan Lee and Steve Ditko create Spider-Man!

The Visible Man

20140620-163127-59487093.jpg

In 1959 the Renwal Blueprint Models Co., of Mineola N.Y. produced a very intricate plastic model called “The Visible Man”. At 1/5 scale, it is still a very detailed reproduction of the human anatomy.

I don’t know what the original srp of this model was, but I’m sure for the time it wasn’t cheap. Not only did it come with hundreds of small model pieces, it also came with a nicely illustrated introduction to anatomy booklet, assembly instructions and guarantee/part replacement order form.

At some point I might actually assemble this guy properly, but this also requires painting all the small pieces and painstakingly gluing them all into place. I’m not a very patient person unfortunately.

Marvel Flyers

20140605-230907-83347356.jpg

In 1966 the Topps Chewing Gum company put out the “Marvel Flyers”. There were 12 Marvel Flyer styrofoam gliders, but Spidey was obviously the sexiest one of all.

20140605-231645-83805288.jpg

Top and bottom sides

20140605-231708-83828269.jpg

For a mere dime (half the price of a loaf of white bread) you could have hours of fun zinging Spidey through the air

20140605-232047-84047943.jpg

And got $1.20 you could have the whole set

20140605-232123-84083781.jpg

Instructions:
1. Insert wing and tail.
2. It flies!
(Note: step 2 does not say “throw”)

1966 must’ve been fun

New paint applications on canvas

I’ve been gleaning a lot of inspiration from legendary comic artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko lately. Here are the results. All, except the 2001 painting which is 12″x12″, are 8″x10″ on black canvas. Which is a bitch to paint orange and yellow on. Some are commissions, some are trades, some are gifts, all are for fun.

Wipe your @$$ with Spidey and Hulk

20140524-182839-66519148.jpg

In 1979 the shit must have been seriously piling up, or there must have been a shortage in super hero toilet paper, because under license of Marvel Comics Group the company Oh Dawn! Inc. released one of the most bizarre comic related items ever. “The Amazing Spider-Man and Incredible Hulk toilet paper”. Yes. Toilet paper. Shit tickets. With spider-Man and the Hulk printed on it.

20140524-183254-66774012.jpg

Their images weren’t just on the box mind you, but I’ll get to that in a minute. The box itself is a nice collectible piece, featuring some original art by what looks to be John Romita Sr., although it could be by an artist named Dave Hunt who was known at the time to draw a decent Spidey for other licensed Marvel stuff, including comics.

20140524-184043-67243926.jpg

The sides, including the top and bottom all had full color illustrations on them. Some were original for the square format, others were just stock photostats that were used over and over again for different products.

20140524-184244-67364247.jpg

And while the outside shows Hulk and Spider-Man going at it, the inside tells another story all together. Literally.

20140524-184406-67446686.jpg

The back of the box reads as follows “presenting an all-new, action-packed confrontation between Marvel’s mightiest super-stars!” This might have had something to do with the fact that both the spider and the green guy were on TV at the time.

20140524-184630-67590395.jpg

So yea. There’s an original story printed right on the tissue.

20140524-184838-67718592.jpg

20140524-184850-67730012.jpg

So without further ado, I present to you “The Gamma Gambit” written by Jim Salicrup and Michael Higgens. Art credit isn’t given, but it appears to be by an early Hulk artist, Marie Severin

20140524-185329-68009101.jpg

20140524-185632-68192855.jpg

20140524-185647-68207908.jpg

So there you have it. Both Bruce Banner and Peter Parker attend a gamma powered/atomic generator exhibition at Empire State University. But they weren’t the only two in attendance, as the Leader and his Mechanoid robot break on to steal it. Am I the only one who thought having an experiment like this at a college was a bad idea? Anyhoo…when the Leader goes to gamma-blast an innocent victim (Peter) Bruce jumps in to take the brunt of the blast. And you know what happens next. All in all, this story, expanded, would have made a fine issue of Marvel Team-Up for sure.

20140524-190339-68619145.jpg

I don’t think ill ever wipe my butt with it tho. ‘Nuff said.
