What if DC Published Marvel Characters in the ’60s: SPIDER-MAN EDITION


Here’s an oldie but a goodie from our pal Kerry Callen, as he imagines what would happen if DC published Marvel characters in the ’60s.

Dig this:

Are there any DC heroes who didn’t get fat at one point or another?

I especially dig the logo, with the clever absence of “The Amazing” since it was such a Marvel conceit. The stylish webbing background is missing too, replaced by a more Batman-ish approach. Good one, Kerry!
