I've just turned in my last ever Spiderman and Friends artwork. Between me, Rik Hoskin on scripts and Lee Carey on occasional linework or pencils, we've notched up 66 consecutive issues - 67 actually because one was completed but never printed (it featured a version of the Super Adaptoid, which mimicked the other heroes' powers, but was rejected because Marvel felt that would confuse the readers). That's over six and a half years' work, my longest run on any single 'strip'.

It could be a surreal experience at times. The character designs with their Popeye forearms and massive feet (even the girls), the fact that Christmas could be alluded to but never mentioned by name (not even a Christmas tree could be shown in later issues and the basic concept of Marvel superheroes as (seemingly parentless) kids building sandcastles and playing in a treehouse.

Weird highlights for me include Doctor Octopus' automatic dog washing machine or his bad hair day, dressing Spidey up as Doctor Strange for Halloween and doing a version of Civil War set in a park.

Shame. The house of mouse should be careful with its new product aquisitions especially with what looked like a fun little comic.

awh man I'm sorry.. - I've often looked at that comic and though it must have been a great one to work on (personally I woulda loved it anyway!) lol ... - I'm sorry that it's falling along the way side with everything else.. presumably all due to the house-of-mouse takeover :/
You guys did great work on that title.. you should all be proud :)
