Into The Spider-Controversey…


It’s amazing how quickly the internet can be set aflame by something small, or in this case something people should who feel the need to voice their opinion should already know.  The new Spider-Man is half black, half Dominican.  It’s not a big deal.  In Spiderman: Homecoming, when Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino mentions his “nephew that lives here” at the 2:23 mark, and that is a direct reference to Miles Morales, (who has a criminal uncle that he’s reluctantly forced to combat in the books).

 

The new Sony helmed, animated Spider-Man movie is much in the vein of the TMNT movie from the same animation studio, but promises to pass the torch to Miles Morales in a way that also introduces the “Spider-verse”, (a universe where Peter Parker is still alive, and all manner of amazing things still happen).  Many people don’t know about this change that happened in 2011, but have been quite vocal about the new Spider-Man being of a different race.  (To them I say, if you haven’t read a book since 2011, maybe get with the times… and literacy)  To the writing staff personally, if you’re skinny, and black, and can do incredible things to help other people in need, who’s to complain?  I enjoy it.  Lets see what Sony can do with this.

The Glass Bags?


These hollow and solid sculptures in the shape of water filled plastic bags examine the boundaries of human perception by manipulating light and space with the optical properties of glass. Made using traditional glass making techniques, this novel approach to the use of the material creates a lens to view the world afresh and the items we perceive around us.  The dimensions vary around 12-17” (30cm-43cm) tall x 7″wide (18cm) x 4” deep (10cm) – Available online here

The German Justice League Posters.
