Worst Spider-Man drawing ever?

December 7, 2010

No, it’s not the worst. But when you consider that I pulled this ad out of an actual Marvel comic book, it’s pretty bad. You’d think that they might have some quality control when it comes to the Spider-Man image — I’m not saying that they have to have a John Romita Spider-Man for every squirt-gun glove or whatever else plastic garbage is being flogged, but still… This one is like the drawings I’d do as a little kid, where I’d get to the hands and say “screw it” and just draw round circles. And what’s going on with the face?

Remember when Wizard used to publish a few pages every month of drawings that fans would send in on envelopes? Maybe they still do, I don’t know. Some of the drawings were good, but some, well, some were awful. Bless the souls who sent them in, but geez. They didn’t hold up under close inspection.

Like this one.

    That really is an exercise in the extremes concerning the anatomy of the hands. You go from the ham-hocks for hands in the action shot, to the embarrassingly tiny fingers on the detail.

    Unless, of course, the water reservoir is so big that the fingers just look that small in comparison to your now oversized palms.

      You’re right — the hands look all swollen but the fingers are those of a dainty little girl. And, while we’re at it, it looks like they’re being filled up with a local diner’s ketchup bottle.
