turns 10!

By Ben Morse What do you get for the girl who has everything? Well, Mayday Parker, aka the Amazing Spider-Girl, may not have quite everything, but with the coolest dad on Earth, rad super powers and now a decade of webslinging and buttkicking under her belt, she's got a plenty to smile about. Marvel.com missed Mayday's birthday party a couple months back, but to try and make it up to our favorite wallcrawling cutie, we snagged AMAZING SPIDER-GIRL writer Tom DeFalco, who co-created SG and has been writing her for over 100 issues now, to share his 10 favorite moments from the early days of SPIDER-GIRL. And as an added party favor, we've got all of Tom's remembrances available for your perusal courtesy of Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited-just click the cover image next to each entry and be whisked away to a sensational Spider-Girl adventure!
