The Editors and Staff of Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride would like to announce that, for this week only, there will be no Sneak Peek of the Week. But don’t worry, it will return next week. Rest assured that this week will continue on as normal, beginning with Fun With Teh Internets, and following through to the Imponderable and Saturday Comics.

However, today, Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride would like to proudly pay honor to one of our own. Today, my brother, who blogs here at bmj2k.com every Monday under the name Allan Keyes, is getting married. We of course wish him and his bride, the blushing Mrs. Keyes, nothing but the best in life. So in this blog’s small way, join me in celebrating their marriage with a gallery of famous comic book (and one television) weddings.

The Saturday Comics: The Spanish Spider-Man

The Spanish Spider-Man is not a new title, nor is it a new character.

Marvel is pretty transparent when it comes to political correctness. Aside from the white male Peter Parker, they’ve tried to make multi-cultural versions of Spidey for “wider markets.”

After Peter Parker’s death in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160 a new character by the name of Miles Morales takes up the mantle of Spider-Man as a black thirteen-year-old superhero.

Spider-Man 2099: A geneticist named Miguel O’Hara gained his spider-like powers from a gene-splicing incident.

Spider-Man: India is a comic book originally published in India by Gotham Entertainment Group in 2004, retelling the story of Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man in an Indian setting.

The Spider-Girl comic book series, originally published under the MC2 imprint, features May “Mayday” Parker, Peter’s daughter in an alternate continuity.

However, this Spanish Spider-Man is nothing like that. These are reprints of the Amazing Spider-Man comic translated into Spanish and branded as El Asombroso Hombre-Arana. I don’t know when these first began to appear, but they started at number one and continued well into the modern era. The title may still be published, though I can’t verify that. So check out the gallery below of El Asombroso Hombre-Arana and enjoy.
