Daily Spider-Man: Lost in a glorious daydream of himself

I sat staring at my screen for several minutes trying to find the words to sum up today's strip; ultimately I decided JSP's words from yesterday said it best.

I mean... that putdown makes NO SENSE and he's riding so high on it... I hate him, I love him, I hate him...

It’s just so ridiculous! Peter has battled some of the most notorious super-villains in comic book history yet he gets off on fucking with this poor schlub? I agree with JSP, Peter is sooooooooooooo smug about this. It’s the equivalent of taking candy from a baby!

Did all the other Horrorthonners die?

In the next installment I would like to see the mugger pick his keys up out of the ditch, then drive by Peter, splashing him with a well placed puddle. The final panel would be Peter alone on the highway exclaiming "?".

That's hilarious, JSP! It's funny that the writer felt the need to have this little interlude before Peter gets back home. It seems random. Perhaps it's a way to ensure that the strip always has some action?

I think this whole car mugging escapade was a lazy way to buy some time while they try and figure out where to take the story next.

So funny! Are you going to post the Sunday wrap up? That will likely be hilarious too.

I'm posting all of it!

Supposedly he's taking the Spidey act to San Francisco because he's stalking the Kingpin, but this little side adventure made we want him to continue wandering, solving minor backwater injustices like Bill Bixby's Hulk.

Did anyone (JSP, I'm looking at you) ever find or post the Rex Morgan (or maybe it was Mary Worth) strip that was posted on the Wincze Family Fridge for a while, circa 1988 or so?

It was only two panels, and I'm pretty sure it was Rex (or Mary) in the first panel saying, "Driver, to the airport!" And then the second panel is just the car speeding off. Like, that was fucking IT.

If I was a fan, hanging and dying on each day's installment, I would have been pretty pissed at that one. JSP, in his comic brilliance, posted it on the fridge as if it had some larger significance. Which is goddamn hilarious.

LOL Stan. I don't remember that one but I remember cutting out a Family Circus where they were walking into a mall and the caption simply read "We're here to shop, not to see a movie. "
