If Spiderman relocated to Columbus

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

Leveque TowerWould Spiderman ever relocate to Columbus? Probably not but if Goran Utvic can speculate about Spidey moving to Chicago from New York... Goran wrote:  "If Spiderman decided that he no longer wanted to websling from the Empire State Building..."  I can wonder about Spiderman relocating to Columbus.

I wrote about it on ColumbusBestBlog.com Spidey would of course live in downtown Columbus so he could hang out at  Leveque Tower, the Art Deco "skyscraper" built in 1927.  The second tallest building in Columbus has the right  feel for the cartoon character.  I believe it is 47 stories tall.

If I can speculate about Spiderman moving to Central Ohio I can take it further and I did on ColumbusBestBlog.com in If Spiderman Moved to Columbus.   

Where would other cartoon strip characters relocate to in Central Ohio?  Where would Opus cavort? Which cartoon character would be likely to live in Worthington?  Which cartoon family would live in Dublin or Westerville? Who would relocate to Dublin or Westerville?   For the most part I kind of pictured most of the cartoon strip characters living inside 270 for some reason but in more suburban kind of neighborhoods.  Characters like Blondie and Dagwood, The Family Circus, Peanuts, Hi and Lois, Calvin and Hobbes...

Why would cartoon characters relocate to Columbus or Central Ohio? Maybe because of OSU's Cartoon Research Library.   This week is the Festival of Cartoon Art at OSU.  Maybe some of these characters will be in town for it. From the Cartoon Research Library website: "The ninth triennial Festival of Cartoon Art, October 26-27, 2007, will focus on the art of graphic storytelling."  

OSU's Cartoon Research Library turns 30   on Discover Columbus.

See you in the funny papers.

Maureen! Spiderman has to move to Cleveland not Columbus!  After all, he was here filming the last movie and I'm SURE he liked what he saw! :-)  Cute post

Carole this is a localism post. Local for me is Columbus, this is what Brian called a link direction post to an entry on ColumbusBestBlog.com In the post I am linking to I mention the Spiderman movie and Cleveland: "If Spiderman moved to Columbus of course he’d have to become part of the downtown Columbus urban living scene.. and he’d be webslinging from the LevequeTower because it is of the correct vintage and has the all important art deco look. I don’t think I saw the last Spiderman movie. Wasn’t part of it shot in downtown Cleveland because of “the look.”"

Maureen, what a great teaser. I read it to see what it would be like and I have spent the last 15 minutes on the OSU Cartoon Library homepage looking at old cartoons. Great localism piece.
