Welcome, discerning viewer, to the Spade-Men. If you have just tuned in, you are probably wondering "Who exactly are the Spade-Men?", or perhaps "What sick and twisted mind invented this comic?". These are just some of the questions we may or may not get around to answering as we write the viewer's guide.
All of the important parts of the Spade-Men web site can now be accessed from The Spade Chamber
, the main menu of this site. This page tells you a bit more about what each link will take you to.
The Spade-Men comic series originated in the mind of a man known to his
friends acquaintances as "Understanding Jon", and is based around the fictional antics of a group of high school and university friends turned superheroes (or, in at least one case, turned blue-skinned bubble-headed alien). For those unfamiliar with the real-life people who are the inspiration of the Spade-Men, it's probably better for all concerned that you stay that way. However, the important elements of these folks can be gleaned from the "Meet the Spade-Men" page.
