Parker Premier-75 Chinese Lacque Fountain Pen, XF. For many years Parker was the ONLY pen Chinese knew, and many others in East Asia. It was a sad transition, over quite a few years, when Parker became a "play-toy" in the hands of its own ownership, and then through outside acquisition by Gillette, and then Newell Rubbermaid. Though the Parker brand continues to introduce innovation, it has ceased to be the focus of lovers of fine writing.
Peter Parker: Spider-Man (originally titled simply Spider-Man), was a monthly comic book series published by Marvel Comics that ran for 98 issues from 1990-1998. The series originally was conceived as a showcase for Todd McFarlane. McFarlane, who until then had only been known as an artist, was hugely popular at the time and the series was created by editor Jim Salicrup so that McFarlane could pencil, ink, and write a Spider-Man title of his own, starting with the "Torment" storyline.
