Well I took some of your comments on the old spidey pic i posted, and along with a bit of artistic licence created this fake cover/splash page style pic. The basic structure and elements of the pic are the same (spiderman statuette). I decided to add the statue of liberty in the background (hence the title) and thought the smudgy painted look would maybe bring the whole pic together. Airbrushed some mist/clouds over the top of spidey and the wall (which is a flat fill of bricks distorted and smudged). Is this better than the Blast from the Past? You tell me.
