This was the week that Edmonton went out to play with Spider-Mable, so let’s start there.
If you missed the phenomenon, or just want to relive it, Wanye Gretz has a passionate recap.
Sonic’s Layne Mitchell has more on Jason Blower’s T-shirt project to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation, which made Mable’s epic superhero day possible.
And speaking of Jason, learn more about what makes him a big dreamer in Tineke de Jong’s post on The Noteworthy.
It looks like the shirt has enough preorders to be made, so way to go, Jason! Order your T-shirt here.
