  2. I have this issue in the brazilian version from the 60's. So much nostalgia... About the version of Pablo: AMAZING!

  3. Super great! I love it!

    (And I truly wish I could stop myself from mentioning the word "mot" at the bottom. But I enlarged it to carefully look it over because of how much I like it!)

  4. Fantastic! One of the first comics I ever read (reprint digest, of course).

  5. I'm a huge fan of Ditko's version and Mayer's. The remake did a nice job of giving this a kid-friendly feel. Fun, despte the typo ;)

    (PS: mot — n slang ( Dublin ) a girl or young woman, esp one's girlfriend)

  6. Great work, Pablo! I'm digging the indie feel on the redux and the blocky shadows seem perfectly suited for this piece.

  7. I like the spittle coming out of Doc Ock's mouth.
    Nice touch.

  8. I like the fact that the redrawn version doesn't show that the tentacles are attached to Dr. Octopus' body, keeping that aspect of his powers as a surprise revelation in the actual story. (At least, it would be a surprise at the time.)
