The Spectacular Spider-Woman

Way, way, way back before she became all cool again, I was an enormous fan of the original Spider-Woman, and secretly harbored plans to one day make it big at Marvel Comics and restore her to prominence. Obviously, that's no longer needed (thanks to Mr. Brian Michael Bendis) but I thought folks might get a kick out of seeing these circa 1995-or-so tryout pages I did.








My own personal critique? Some of the storytelling is a little wonky, and I'm not digging the 90's panel layouts, but the figure work hold up surprisingly well.

SpiderWoman yes. Especially drawn by Infantino when she got all curvy.

Simon: Infantino was, and is, great, but my fave artist on those early issues was Steve Leahleoh (sp?). But Infantino's design for Spider-Woman, the costume, the hair-- so great.

Hanbbit: Y'know, it would really depend. My long-term plan was always to be get to the point where I'd be able to do my own stories, and I'm doing that without a Marvel stint. Maybe if they let me do a Spider-Woman story...
