Spiderman Unlimited

This page is from Spiderman Unlimited, volume 3, #8, an 11-page story called Fanboyz, about three not-too-bright Spiderman fans who try to do what their hero does. The story is so slight, the humor in it is so broad, that it is easy to overlook it (as I did when it came out in May of 2005) and miss Seth's skill at putting the scenes together, his always clean and elegant drawings, and his ability to give real weight as well as comic foolishness to the images of morons wearing their underwear on top of their pants and doing idiotic stunts.
The story was written by Joe Hill , who is a serious writer of novels and stories. I think this is his only comic book.
