A month or so ago their was an issue of Webspinners? a SpiderMan book that told the story about the wrestler who faced Peter. I thought it was one of the coolest reads since the Homecoming storyline but when I went back the next month I didn't see a second part was that wrestling story line just a one shot. Pls let me know.

The recent isssue of Spider-Man's Tangled Web (#14), entitled The Last Shoot chronicles Crusher Hogan's last days as a wrestler before facing Spider-Man in the ring, a match which was in turn shown in the Spider-Man origin in Amazing Fantasy #15. The issue was written by Brian Azzarello and Scott Levy, aka Raven.

Dude you are scarry. But thanks a bunch. I knew someone form the Wrestling World had to help with that issue but is it worth trying to find that Amazing Fantasy issue? Is it as good a read as the Tangle Web.

Wasn't there a whole discussion of this when it came out first time?
“The function of a good teacher is to discourage film as a course of study for the non-avid. There are film societies and cinemas galore for the serious non-film student.” – Robert Steele, “Film Scholars at the New York Film Festival,” FILM COMMENT 2, Fall 1964, p. 41, as quoted in It’s Only a Movie, by Raymond J. Haberski Jr.
Or you could go the route I did when collecting Amazing Spider-Man from 1 to the present - Marvel Tales. Issue 137 re-printed Amazing Fantasy 15 and then they reprinted each issue of Amazing in order (including Annuals) up thru issue 50. They used the original covers and also included the original letters pages. And they were in colour. Very cool.
For those of us who haven't won the lottery yet, this was the best way to go. You can usually find these for buck or less in bargain bins of your local comic shop.
There's also Marvel Masterworks, but at $40-$50 a pop, that's a little pricey. You can also try the Essential editions, but those are black & white, but pretty cheap at $15 per.
It was number one at the box office this weekend. Estimated 22.7 million dollars. So this is what passes for good entertainment with today's youth? Let me put on my gumpy old man hat and say "This country's going to hell in a handbasket"
