After meeting a twelve year old girl that knows his secret identity, Spider-Man is whisked away to another dimension to help her fight the Tordenkakerlakk.

A twelve year old sorceress takes Spidey on an adventure across dimensions to face a shapeshifting horror. My first reaction was "What the fuck was that?"

RIP Bernie Wrightson (October 27, 1948 - March 19, 2017)

Sacado de una mente enferma, esta historia del paso de la niñez a la madurez parece creada por la Mike Mignola noventera.

This seems to be a great stand-alone piece that offers a complete story in a quick read.

The first Graphic Novel I ever purchased. A great fun fantasy story starring everyone's favorite Web-head. Beautifully drawn by Bernie Wrightson- this was also my introduction to his amazing art.

I really love the art for this book. It feels more like a Dr. Strange book though.
