Spider-Man reviews crayons - It's just silly and it's not even Friday.
  • I don't know why I love this so much, but I do.
  • Spidey's fingers are scary. I want a scary-fingered Spidey. Denim just looks like blue to me and if you're going to have 2 blues why not more blacks under the guise of "ebony" or midnight"? "GREEN. HOUSE. EFFEC. T."
  • Fun for the first two pages, but I burned out after that. Couldn't go on.
  • Aren't there only two pages?
  • The third will be written later, I think
  • The third will be written later, I think More than that - he's only 1/3 of the way through the pack. This is brilliant, Kimberly ) - and black is the king of crayons!
  • Bless you Kimberly. This is exactly what I needed. Well, this and cold pitcher of martinis. Long live the www.
  • Razzmatazz Hmm, even in X-entertainment I can learn something new. Bless the internet! Thanks Kim!
  • woot! this is great! thanx!
  • Oooooooh, color me puce!
  • Best of the web.
  • ummm... MonkeyFilter: Fun for the first two pages, but I burned out after that.
  • Man, what a wonderful way to start a Wednesday. Thanks Kimberly! P.S. Spidey shares my views on Orange-Yellow being misnamed Yellow-Orange. P.P.S. Totally agree with PY's comment on the more black crayon front. P.P.P.S. I like postscripts.

  • holy crap, spidey's fingers are really bendy. i remember being freaked out the first time i saw a GI Joe, and realized that it had articulation points that you just can't find in a Star Wars figure. i also dimly recall my brothers and i debating the benefits of extra articulation points, and eventually deciding that, as action-figure purists, the only thing you needed other than shoulder and hip joints and a twistable neck (except for chewbacca who was too cool to turn his head) was a peg-hole in the heel so you wouldn't fall down when the millenium falcon made a hard left turn. those damn twisty GI Joes were too bendy for us to handle at that young age. (ok so we eventually warmed up to them. but the rubber bands holding the legs on thing... being able to physically dislocate the guy's hip was weird.) oh and brown is my favorite crayon. curse you, bendy spider-man, for only drawing poop with it.
  • oh and brown is my favorite crayon... That's the main difference between an ecologist and a biologist.
  • Finally my wait is over - (if only because I finally looked back) Part 2 and Part 3
  • Thanks jb. I am still mesmerized by Spidey's fingers. Most of those neon ones are a crock. Sepia and cerulean blue look promising.
