The Loves: Spidey's raw emotion, in those rare moments when he lets down his guard, gives up the tough guy act, and succumbs to his trembling awe of the beyond

Lyric poetry about fictional pop culture icons: that's a love of mine, too!

Thanks for the comment, Dave.

I was actually going more for "obnoxiously long title" than "lyric poetry." In fact, I debated just leaving a title off altogether, to really draw all four of my readers that much further into the angst and ambiguity: is Spiderman here yearning for the Unknown with outstretched, pleading hand? Or, quite the opposite, is he about to sling web into the blur, assuming cahoots between the Green Lantern and the Unknown? Oh, the drama of the junk on my bookshelf!

Annalese: Of course I do! Honestly, it's a little embarrassing how happy I was when he came in the mail --- Spidey's one of the best alley finds I've come across, and all thanks to my dear 4563 West Seventh Ave'rs. I'll do a post on alley finds soon.
