They may have been miffed about my not participating in the documentary, so
they just left that stuff out. Which is okay.

I've generally declined to do much "expert" discussion of Spidey or comics
writing because I think I'm still sufficiently new at it that it would be an
act of surpeme ego to try and come off as an expert on...well, anything related
to this. Which is why I passed on being interviewed for this documentary (I
also don't know New York well enough), as well as the first Spidey DVD and a
couple of books about Spidey writers. I finally agreed to be interviewed for
the second Spidey DVD if I could talk mainly about the character and my
thoughts about him, rather than spouting off about the writing or being a
big-shot. Once I've done it for a few more years, I'll feel a little better
about being an Expert.

>1- What Spidey DVD? Can you point the way to info on it?

It's the DVD for the second Spidey movie. Should be showing up on Amazon soon.

I just can't imagine anything more tedious or indulgent than talking about the
learning process, at least for me.
