This was the first 'Tangled Web' story and it was done by superhero fan Garth Ennis. While it's more SFW than your average Ennis book, there is quite a bit of gruesome body horror that wouldn't be out of place in a Cronenberg film, so take that as a warning.

Greetings True Believers!

Here is another great tale from SMTW. It sucked for the Runaways when they realized that their folks were super-villains. It sucks harder when when your parent is a z-lister like the Leap-Frog.

So what is a kid to do? Find-out and enjoy!

Greetings True Believers!

I love the short-lived series, Spider-Man's Tangled Web. It was freaking awesome. And Spidey was often a ancillary presence in the stories themselves. It was an anthology series that focused on Spidey's supporting cast, villains and how he affected other people.

I highly, highly recommend it to Spider-fans, people love to see minor characters get their due or folks who just love good comics!

Here is one of my favorite SMTW tales, "The Last Shoot". Enjoy!

Greetings True Believers! This is my last post for OPM week and it's one of my favorites, for two reasons.

1. This issue of "Spider-Man's Tangled Web" features one of the best parts of any comic-verse. The villain bar. I love scenes of villains just hanging out, grousing about heroes, comparing notes and relaxing. Which is why I included a few scans of just that.

2. This story is an example of the fact that Norman Osborn doesn't need a costume, glider or control of an international martial agency to be one of the scariest motherfuckers on the planet.

Spider-Man's Tangled Web was a short-lived series from the early 2000s starring Spidey's supporting cast and the various people who fall into his orbit (hence the title). As an anthology series, it was a bit hit-or-miss, but there were some real gems in its 22 issues. Of particular note are #4, Severance Package by Greg Rucka and Eduardo Risso; Darwyn Cooke and Jay Bone's two issues (11 and 21); 13, Double Shots by Ron Zimmerman and Sean Phillips; and the issue I'm featuring here: 20, Behind the Mustache by Zeb Wells and Dean Haspiel. Not only is it a great story for a great supporting character, it's one of my favorite single Spider-Man issues.

After his second heart attack, Jonah needs to get anger management therapy or the Daily Bugle's health insurance company will sever their contract. His first session gets off to a rocky start, but eventually Jonah starts talking about his relationship with his abusive father (since retconned to stepfather by BND) and his high school sweetheart and eventual wife, Joan. I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've ever seen Joan, since she died years before Peter became Spider-Man.

5 pages out of 22. )

There are a lot of fantastic moments in this issue and I wish I could post all of it; if you liked these scenes, definitely track down the entire story.

J.Jonah Jameson has always been one of my favorite characters in comics, mostly because I was always surprised by how much depth that one guy actually had.This story is from Tangled web 20 and is one of my favorite from that series. Also what this about Aunt May marrying JJ's dad?
