Peter Parker is a fan of Great Frog


Who says we can't do Marvel/Dc crossovers anymore?

In AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #601, Peter Parker rushes to keep an appointment to meet-up with Mary Jane and remembers, "Grand Central, under the center clock! Eight sharp, same as the night we went to see Great Frog in concert."

Titans fans will remember, Great Frog was the rock group in which Roy (Speedy) Harper played drums while Mal (Herald) Duncan played horns.

In the 70s, the Titans set up a new headquarters at Gabriel's Horn, a discotheque in Farmingdale, Long Island. The disco was actually a cover for their secret underground headquarters. Great Frog would play there, and even had few gigs after the team disbanded.

Great Frog was also referenced in the 1990s TITANS series, where a drum set with the Great Frog logo could be seen in Roy's room.

Sneaky, sneaky reference from the walking comic book encyclopedia, Mark Waid, who scripted this issue.

Hope you and MJ enjoyed the show, Pete!

    I don't think I need to stress how important it is to run antivirus and spyware software We are happy we get to be of service to the world but believe that service can only bring in a minimal amount as determined by the client's ability to pay, the rate of donations made to the non-profit organization we work for, the number of products sold, or any number of reasons God is getting ready to release full heavy "torpedo" action against all these evil people, and still a lot of these people are not going to break by repenting and turning to God For more information on jewelry and gemstones, we cordially invite you to visit to pick up your FREE copy of How To Buy Jewelry And Gemstones Without Being Ripped Off

    Create a style and treat it like your trademark or calling card) Your community may only have vets that do a little bit of everything ? and there's nothing wrong with that, if that's all that's available, but I'll remind you ? you usually go to a specialist for your health issues, don't you?If you're new in the community, or haven't needed a vet before ? word of mouth is a great way to start looking for a new vet I knew a man who always wore cowboy boots
    Fifth, act as if you have all the money you want If you have a short haired dog no need for a trim You may call these echo thoughts because they are no longer conscious, but like an echo, they continue to fill every space available
