LIID 107: Spider-Man in Maximum Overdrive! by johntrumbull LIID 107: Spider-Man in Maximum Overdrive! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #107 for 9/20/12: Stephen King Week! Can't your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man take his girl Gwen out for a nice drive in the Spider-Mobile without the semi from MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE coming by to ruin it all?

Someday, I'm going to draw Spider-Man for one of these things doing something more Spider-Man like. So far I've drawn him in the style of Dan Clowes, eating a sub with the Green Goblin and, out for a Sunday drive in the Spider-Mobile. Remember when he just swung on his web over New York City? I barely can! :)

Check out all the other great pieces here: [link]

Thank you for combining several of my favorite things into one art piece. I was addicted to Maximum Overdrive as a kid and I always loved Spidey, Gwen and the Spider-Mobile. Excellent work :iconclapplz:

I thought this was too funny when I saw Maxium Overdrive back in the 1980s.  :)

Lol, nice. I can just imagine the background music playing as it homes in on Spidey.

I noticed in the movie.Only Large Vehicles,machines and other things are possessed by the rouge comet thing. Regular cars are not possessed by it.

I've never actually seen the movie, but I wasn't intending for the Spidey Mobile to be under anyone else's control,. if that's what you mean.

Heh. One of my favorite Spider-Man moments from the last decade was in the Spider-Man/Human Torch mini series that Dan Slott wrote, when the two of them were pulled over while test-driving the Spidey Mobile. Spider-Man confessed that he didn't have a license, AND was currently wanted for murder. The Torch went, "Anything ELSE?" and Spidey replied, "I think I'm pregnant."

John,
I love this picture! I own the Green Goblin head that was used on the Happy Toyz truck in Maximum Overdrive. I just finished restoring it about a month ago. I would love to get a poster of this and have you sign it. Would like to display it when I take the head to cons. Please check out the head here and let me know if it would be possible to get something like this. [link]
Thanks,'
Tim

But where's the fun in that? I love Spidey's line and Gwen's expression.

The dialogue in this one was completely influenced by the deadpan Spider-Man from Twisted Toyfare Theatre. I always loved how he just didn't want to be bothered by anything.

I had added a detail of the Spider-Mobile turning out to be Christine -- but your idea of Gwen in the "suicide seat" is much better!

Heck, maybe someday Marvel will get back to him just doing Spidey stuff -- instead of being the last one standing against world-destroying cosmic forces and stuff -- but I bet you'll get to that first...

The funny thing is I totally wasn't planning on putting Gwen in there until I started penciling it, and then I realized that would enhance the humor. :)
