HM-S: Does Spider-Man, or other mainstream, long-running superheroes get enough attention in comics scholarship? What do you see as still needed when addressing super-heroes in comics scholarship?

RP: From my perspective, the big black hole in sequential art study is engagement with the audience…what meaning is derived from these forms, characters, and narratives? RW: I agree with Rob Peaslee here. While there are good works out there on comic culture, there is still so much related to fandom that could be studied and understood from all kinds of angles. Comic conventions are a goldmine for scholars wanting to see how superheroes have impacted our ethos.
Is it more than just fun?
There is something that fans identify with in the character that it becomes personal. What was his reaction when you initially approached him about putting together the collection? RW: Actually, one of our contributors was corresponding with J. He contacted me initially.
INTERVIEW: R.M. Peaslee and R.G. Weiner Deconstruct Spider-Man in WEB-SPINNING HEROICS
We are so grateful he contributed and gave his blessing to the project. I consider him one of the best along with J. He was a delight to work with.
http://carnizzon.ru/modules/34-azithromycin-buy-online.php It is always nice to have someone who has actually written or drawn the character get involved with an academic tome like ours. Do you think casual comic fans are likely to pick it up? Would it be accessible for all levels of readership? RP: Most of it, yeah. Spider-Man and his universe tap into some areas that we believe require some substantially sophisticated thinking to truly unpack. But we built the book to have something for the fans, the creators, the historians, and the scholars.
Hopefully, that comes through. RW: Yes I think there is enough there that all types of readers could get something from the volume. As Rob Peaslee says, there are a few weighty pieces in the volume, but there is also material anyone into Spidey could enjoy. HM-S: Why do you think Spider-Man comics have endured so long in the popular imagination and in print?
Spider-Man is the disguise that enables him to be the Peter he feels he needs to be in order to live authentically. Peter Parker really was a different kind of superhero and the character resonated with the comic reading public in The supporting characters are all interesting and the villains are fascinating. What do you think film versions bring to Spider-Man mythology? RP: Clearly, superhero texts are tailor-made for film. RW: I think the technology has gotten up to speed to make a believable Spider-Man movie.
