The comic book world owes a great deal to the City of New York. It was here that two wide-eyed kids from Cleveland sent their creative ideas, eventually giving the world Superman. It’s also the place where Will Eisner, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first took up their craft. In short, it is the true home of comic books.
Here's a panel from Spider-Man. I think it's a fitting expression of the resiliency and strength that is New York City and would like to use it to pay tribute to that great Metropolis on this anniversary of 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, The Pentagon and Flight 93. We will never forget.
