Comments: Created by Karl Heitmueller, Jr.

Tarantula appeared in the "Prince Street News" comic strip by Karl Heitmueller, Jr. that is in most issues of Back Issue magazine, published by TwoMorrows Publishing.

Tarantula's height, weight & eye color are approximated from that of his Earth-616 counterpart. No real name was ever given for this reality's Tarantula but it seems likely that he would be either Anton Miguel Rodriguez or Luis Alvarez.

El Ministerio de Paseos Tontos translates into English as "the Ministry of the Walk of Fools" or roughly, as if anyone didn't get the Monty Python reference, "the Ministry of Silly Walks."
