This is not an April Fools joke.

Above, you’ll see John Romita’s original art for the cover to Amazing Spider-Man #121. That issue contains one of the most important stories in the history of Marvel Comics; if you’re not familiar with it, you can read plenty about it at its Wikipedia page. It was written by Gerry Conway.

It’s also the basis for the next Spider-Man movie, which comes out next month.

Now, you’d think that Sony Pictures could find a seat for Gerry Conway. But according to the author of “The Night Gwen Stacy Died,” Sony has yet to acknowledge him.

Last year I went to a press screening of Fox Entertainment’s THE WOLVERINE with Chris Claremont, the writer of the movie’s source material. Claremont was my plus one—he hadn’t been invited to a premiere or a screening. We watched the closing credits together, searching in vain for his name. (Marvel Entertainment and its parent corporation, The Walt Disney Company, have their own checkered history with treatment of talent, but neither THE WOLVERINE nor AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 were produced by them.)

Do you think this is acceptable behavior toward creators? Should Gerry Conway have to take to social media to get an invitation the premiere of a movie based on his work? It’s not like he’s asking for any of the QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS the movie is expected to bring in at the box office.

Here is Gerry Conway’s Twitter account; have a look. And please consider helping him get the word out.

From “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE”, the new art gallery/poster series by Mondo Gallery + Oh My Disney, which just opened at SXSW.

It’s pretty much impossible (no pun intended) to grab a Mondo print as they have a very limited print run, and most of these will probably sell out at SXSW.

So if you’re at SXSW and grab me a Sword In The Stone or Beauty and the Beast or The Rescuers, I will love you forever.

Art & Lies by Jeanette Winterson

THE NATURE OF A WORK OF ART

IS TO BE NOT A PART,  NOR YET

A COPY OF THE REAL WORLD

(AS WE COMMONLY UNDERSTAND THAT PHRASE),

BUT A WORLD IN ITSELF,INDEPENDENT, COMPLETE, AUTONOMOUS;

AND TO POSSESS IT FULLY

YOU MUST ENTER THAT WORLD,

CONFORM TO ITS LAWS,

AND IGNORE FOR THE TIME THE BELIEFS,

AIMS, AND PARTICULAR CONDITIONS

WHICH BELONG TO YOU

IN THE OTHER WORLD OF REALITY.

(OXFORD LECTURES ON POETRY:

PROFESSOR BRADLEY: 1901)
