And I’m not sure what’s up with that extraneous “K.”

So I had a fella bring in a few Spider-Man comics to sell the other day, and he had them stowed away in a small cardboard carrier. That that carrier looked a little something…like this:


I bought the comics, as it turned out I needed them all, and the seller left behind this box when he departed. At first clance, I thought it was a homebad box, as I’ve certainly seen a lot of personally-decorated comic boxes over the decade.

But no, the lettering appears to be printed directiy on the cardboard, which doesn’t preclude someone making one of these for himself, but more likely it’s some kind of mass-produced item. And it’s not official Marvel merchandise, given the lack of copyright notices. Not sure if this really counts as a copyright violation, despite the phrase “Amazing Fantasy” appaering, and having a spider dropping from the name “Peter,” which must be some kind of look ‘n’ feel thing.

Anyway, no idea where this comes from. I’d be very surprised if this was an Official Spider-Man Item™, but if you know where this came from, let me know!

    Maybe it was a screen printing project, perhaps for school. White ink on a red and black box.

    Looks like it’s “That Mystery Box” from That Spider-Man Booth: https://thatspidermanbooth.myshopify.com.

    I’m guessing a Spider-Man-centric mail order company that also routinely attends conventions?

    seems likely!

    Nobody seems to have mentioned that this is a direct take-off from Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo merch, for I think the Saint Pablo tour in 2016-2017. Same lettering, same format, the ‘I feel like Peter’ replacing ‘I feel like Pablo’ and the other one also a copy, though I can’t remember the original wording.

    I don’t remember Kanye claiming to be Spider-Man specifically during that period, though he certainly would have if challenged.

    This was one of those monthly subscriber “loot” crate like services that had a Spider-Man-centric month which included this box. Think it is a spin on the Kanye album, “I Feel Like Pablo.”
