“Look for your reply in the thunder”
by Doc on Nov.19, 2001, under Comics
I managed to get a copy of Amazing Spider-Man #36 yesterday, thanks to a generous local dealer, after search all over (one store had a 55 issue shipment go in a couple of days). This is the issue Marvel asked J. Michael Straczynski to address the events of September 11th. Well, the man did an incredible job. From the perspective of Spider-Man (and superheroes in general, several of whom make cameos in the panels), he addresses the thoughts towards the true superheroes, the police, firefighters, passengers, and everyday people who helped and who lost. For someone who was reluctant and doubtful he could come up with the words, he managed to come with some that I can even give an appropriate description of. Put simply, get this if you can; borrow it and read it if you can. If you can’t, I’m sure someone out there will transcribe it on the Net.
