I just found this via legendary comic book writer @gerryconway’s twitter this morning, and it was the best waste of 15 minutes I’ve enjoyed in a long time. Thwip Studios went and created a motion comic adaptation of the 1989 Marvel graphic novel Parallel Lives by Gerry Conway & Alex Saviuk. This Amazing Spider-Man feature looks at Peter Parker’s and Mary Jane Watson’s separate-but-connected upbringings, complete with sound effects & music from various recognizable Spidey media, and some really talented voice-over work. As I’m a fan of all things Spidey, this is beyond awesome. Enjoy!
He’s Peter Parker: a shy, introverted teen whose life changed forever when a radioactive spider bit him. She’s Mary Jane Watson: product of a broken home, concealing her pain with an outgoing party-girl persona. She’s Spider-Man’s girlfriend, wife and confidante – but Mary Jane Watson won’t stand in ANYONE’S shadow! This red-headed knockout has plenty of her own stories to tell! Learn about MJ’s tragic upbringing, how they meet, fall in love and get married. This is their story. The classic 1989 graphic novel adapted to motion comic! Witness the origin of one of the world’s most famous couples: Peter Parker, and Mary Jane Watson.
