Spiderman Returns to Governors Island on Sunday

Fred Van Lente, author of The Amazing Spiderman, will be on Governors Island this Sunday at 1:30 PM to talk to visitors about how he set two issues of the iconic series on the Island. 

In each story, Spiderman battles the Sandman around some of the island’s most notable landmarks and areas, including Castle Williams, Fort Jay, the historic district and even the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel vent shaft (which is how the evil Sandman accesses Governors Island). Even the old  Burger King on the southern end of the Island makes an appearance in the story. 

Van Lente will take your questions about Spidey, how comics are made, and anything you might want to ask, so be sure to stop by the Commanding Officers House on Sunday to hear about Spiderman’s adventures on the Island.
