Dan Slott: In Amazing Spider-Man we’re going to see The Daily Bugle and the Bugle cast come back in a big way. And, no, it is NOT about Peter becoming a photographer again. It’s a new twist. It’s something we haven’t seen in Amazing Spider-Man yet. After 55 years, that’s a pretty cool trick, right? And it’s a development I’ve been dying to get to for a long time!

The upcoming AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #789 starts a BOLD NEW DIRECTION in the life of Peter Parker. Who looks like a very young Martin Landau.


When the Internet said Martin Landau died on Sunday, there were picture of the Oscar-winning actor as a very young man. And the young Martin Landau reminded me of how Alex Ross draws Peter Parker.

Here are some pictures of Peter Parker as painted by Alex Ross, done for covers of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Note the arched eyebrow.

Also, the eyes on Spider-Man's mask aren't glowing anymore.


And here are some pictures of Martin Landau when he was VERY young. The second picture was taken by Landau's friend James Dean. Note the arched eyebrow.



I could be over-thinking it. Still, those eyebrows are distinctive.

Regarding Slott's quote, I like that Peter isn't going to be a photographer again. "Gotta run! Need to take pictures for the Bugle!" was a common excuse for Peter running off. So common, stories like SPIDER-MAN: BLUE had Peter wonder if anyone ever believed him. Over the years, there were stories where "Peter's photo assignment takes Spider-Man out of New York City." Or "Peter is taking photos at a special event when a super-villain attacks." It's just a set up for why Peter is there, not that Peter liked being a photographer.
