The awesome and unique Australian master cartoonist Brendan McCarthy, still going as Ditko as you can without getting sued, with a lot of Yellow Submarine and Timothy Leary thrown in for very good measure. This was FUN. And, yes, even more so if you're stoned.

Mentioning again, the trade is already slated to come out soon, so pre-order today and encourage Marvel to put out more COOL things like this.

You can find part 1 here, part 2 here, and for those new to Brendan, more New McCarthyism to sample here.

And now: Ditko Finger Brothers.

Next to come, more Bible John, more "I Killed Batman," and other stuff I know I haven't got back to.
(PS if interested: The most recent LULU, returning sometime in September while I attempt to plan out a new ongoing Vladrushka series.)

Your tags are broke at some point, which messed up the whole post.

I feel liked I've been sand-bagged by the Hulk

Well I guess considering his size, tea-bagging just wouldn't cut it, would it?

Also? How would Spidey know about that?

I always thought it basically meant 'walloped by a bag of sand, or something similar'.

Whoa, nelly! You're right - that thing Dr. Strange is riding is totally the Yellow Submarine in boat form. I want one.
Also, I love the 'Harrah-Harrah backwards' thing, 'you're getting all Silver Surfer on me, Doc', the Lee/Ditko cameo in the last page, and, well, basically most of this. I'm impressed with McCarthy's artwork, all right, but Steve Cook did a pretty good job of writing the thing as well - this wouldn't be half as enjoyably insane without all the weird 'Harrah Harrah' stuff and the weird twists to Spidey's origin.

Oh. OK, my bad - I just saw the two names on the cover, and, knowing that McCarthy was the artist, assumed Cook was the writer.
