It’s Comic-Con this weekend! All nerds (and I use this term affectionately as I consider myself a music nerd) converge down to San Diego and revel in the minutiae of everything having to do with anything Kevin Smith or J.J Abrams have ever talked about or touched.
In honor of this magic weekend, I present some of the tremendous work by composers from the 1960s that represented these Comic book heroes. Enjoy!

Spiderman composed by Paul Francis Webster and Robert “Bob” Harris
Barbarella composed by Bob Crewe and Charles Fox
