6) Wiki of the Week: Spider-man’s webshooters. Information taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider-Man%27s_powers_and_equipment.

Spider-Man’s web-shooters, from The Amazing Spider-Man#259. Art by Ron Frenz


Webshooters from The Amazing Spider-man 2012 movie.

Emma Stone revealed that in the The Amazing Spider-Man, (2012) Peter Parker will be inventing and shooting webs from web-shooters instead of organic webbing in the previous films. The second trailer shows they will be more high-tech than most versions.

When Stan Lee created Spider-Man he did not want Spider-Man to be too powerful. due to his super-abilities and he made his webbing a result of his human intellect rather than his spider bite. This has remained true with the exception of his original black costume  and during the recent ‘Disassembled’ storyline.

In his origin story, Peter reasoned that a spider (even a human one) needed a web. Since the radioactive spider-bite did not initially grant him the power to spin webs, he had instead found a way to produce them artificially. The wrist-mounted devices fire an adhesive “webbing” (see below) through a threaded adjustable nozzle. The trigger rests high in the palm and requires a double tap from the middle two fingers to activate, eliminating the chance of accidental discharge when forming a fist.[56] To accomplish this his hands are often in a distinctive hand position when he fires them (resembling the sign for “I love you” in American Sign Language, reverting someone giving you the “Evil Eye” in Italian superstition or the horned hand heavy-metal gesture). In order to fire the webbing, Spider-Man’s fingers must hit the sensor precisely.

Spider-Man must steadily replenish his webbing supply, reloading his web-shooters with small cartridges of web fluid, which is stored under high pressure. In early stories, he carries his extra supplies in a utility belt worn under his costume.[57] Later on, he equips the web-shooters with a bracelet-like carousel that automatically rotates a new cartridge into position as he empties them. When in use, a steel nipple in the carousel pierces the seal of the cartridge, and allows the fluid to travel through an air-tight channel toward the nozzle. Pressing down on the palm-trigger of the web-shooter causes the valve in the nozzle to open wider, expelling the fluid out. Releasing the trigger causes the valves to close, cutting off the web-line or fluid. If Spider-Man creates any variation to his normal web formula that’s too strong for the pinch valves to sever, he might end up being tangled up or tied to the object he attached his web to. This has happened on more than one occasion. His web-shooters require constant maintenance and on more than one occasion suffer jams or malfunctions.

  • News of the week from comics

ICv2 estimated value of the digital comics market in 2011 was $25 million, triple the 2010 figure, and predicts that digital will account for 10 percent of the entire comics market in 2012. Digital sales grew faster in the second half of the year, which ICv2 attributes to three factors: DC’s decision to release its New 52 comics digitally the same day as print, the industry-wide trend toward same-day print and digital releases, and the proliferation of different platforms on which to read digital comics.

SMALLVILLE Season 11.  Written by former Smallville show scribe Bryan Q. Miller, the new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 16. The new comic book series picks-up where the show left off.

May marks another first for the “New 52” era of DC Comics — oversized annuals for Batman, Teen Titans and Animal Man.

The Batman annual is co-written by series writer Scott Snyder with James Tynion IV.  the issue will feature the debut of classic villain Mr. Freeze in DC’s New 52 continuity, and fit into the building Court of Owls storyline.

The regular Teen Titans team of writer Scott Lobdel and artist Brett Booth are joined on that book’s annual by co-writer Tom DeFalco. The issue kicks off a crossover that continues in Superboy #9, Legion Lost #9 (written by DeFalco), Teen Titans #9 and The Ravagers #1. In a post on The Source, Lobdell reveals that the comic will feature the first glimpse of “the Colony,” and introduce much of The Ravagers cast.

The Animal Man annual is written by series writer Jeff Lemire and illustrated by Timothy Green II.  “In many ways this Annual is like a prequel to the crossover storyline that Scott Snyder and I have planned for Animal Man and Swamp Thing,” Lemire said in a post on The Source.

Comic Sales for January.  DC leads the pack with most units sold, with a clean sweep of the top ten best selling comics, according to Diamond.  Marvel, however is the leader in Dollar Market for the second month in a row.

  • Multi-Media comic related news
