Spec Spidey 200

I mentioned this in another post as being a scene I enjoyed seeing recreated in Spider-Man 3. I’ve got it below the cut.

Art’s by Sal Buscema, words by JM DeMatteis. It’s a great scene and wonderful capstone. Spoilers abound, obviously.

For comparison’s sake, here’s the scene from the movie, paraphrased.
Harry leapt in front of Peter and ended up being stabbed through the chest. Pardon the chatlog.
Peter: Hey pal, how you doin’?
Harry: Been better.
Peter: Get you through this.
Harry: No.
Peter: I should never have hurt you. Said those things.
Harry: None of that matters, Peter. You’re my friend.
Peter clasps his hand.
Peter: Best friend.
And Harry dies.

There it is. No commentary needed, I figure? Be a little careful with your comments and spoilers, since the movie is fresh out. If you want to talk spoilers, toss them between <spoiler>spoiler tags</spoiler> and it should hide them properly. Make sure you mention what you’re spoiling, too!

I owe you guys a post. I was writing it on Sunday, but some paying work dropped into my lap, and with a move set for next Monday, you can understand how important that is right now. Soon.

  1. I sincerely hope that is the last spidey movie. While Spiderman 3 wasn’t a bad film, scenes felt rushed, exposition felt forced, and that butler’s line towards the end.. ugh. The level of quality of the film compared to the previous two was something of a let down. Still, it was a decent enough flick. A+++ would review again!

  2. I definitely see the similarities. I’m glad I wasn’t familiar with this tale before seeing the movie.

    I was actually affected by those scenes.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

  3. I’ve always wondered what kind of hair the Osborne family horizontal cornrows were supposed to represent.

  4. Powerful. I, mean, wow. I didn’t know DeMatteis had a run on Spider-Man either, shows how much more reading I need to do.

    You know, the sad thing is that I saw part of this on “Ruining the Moment.” It was the first thing I thought of when I hit a certain panel.
