As a child, I never wanted to read and my folks tried everything. They even told me – pick something to read and we will pay for it. So I picked up reading comics. Boy, they regretted that and changed their tune as I started constantly buying and reading comics.
My favorite superhero growing up was Spider-Man! I loved that he was actually the first teen-hero who wasn’t an adult’s sidekick. He was created by Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditk. I read all the titles he was on.
Needless to say, I have watched all the Spider-Man movies and cartoons. You can imagine how I reacted when in latest Spiderman Movies (Spider-Man: Homecoming) when Peter Parker orders a sandwich and then eats it as Spider-Man overlooking the city after a day of crimefighting. I was freaking out!!
So it was fun to meet with Spidey at Disney Land and get to ask him the question I ask many characters when I visit the parks- What’s your favorite sandwich? Spidey did not disappoint.
Some have assumed the number 5; extra pickles and super pressed would be a Cuban? But there are many possible options there.
The ironic part is – that I just started reading the new Amazing Spider-Man comics and asked their new artist on the project Ryan Ottley what his favorite sandwich was and he responded with some harsh words:
I don’t eat sandwiches. Can we still be friends?

I love the idea of Spidey eating a sandwich that I asked Justin Peterson to draw me a Spidey eating a Sandwich for my office.
