It's not every day you receive something you've waited for more than ten years, but recently it happened.
When I started looking for foreign Spider-man comics in the early 2000's, I knew next to nothing about them. I assumed most developed countries in Europe had published some, and I had read in an old Marvel Age issue that issues had been published in Australia, but other than that, I didn't think there was much else. So when I began my research I quickly discovered the spanish issues from Vertice, which became a favourite with their unique, beautiful painted covers. I wanted to see more of the same and so a daily search for new "Spanish Spider-man" issues began.
Suddenly one day, out from nowhere, a comic catched my eye. FABULOSO Hombre Araña? No title from Spain or Mexico I had heard of before, could it be a previously unknown one? And then, somewhere in the description, I saw the magic word that opened my eyes - Argentina! Of course! Spidey was published in South America also, I hadn't even thought of looking for comics from there, but there it was! The cover looked amazing and I think I laid a bid but was overbid and lost the auction (this was 16 years ago so my memory is a bit fuzzy). This exact comic was what led me on to the path of researching Spider-man comics from all over the world. That, and the fact that these comics look, feel and smell amazing, makes the El Tony editions my favourites of all the foreigns.

Jesse: There was a change in the admins and it never was an "official" FCC page. There is an official group page on facebook now. Many of the members from the archived group are there. www.facebook.com/groups/274684996585171/
