Over 50 years of connecting with
and collecting all things Spider-Man !
I am available for fun, emotional Visual Storytelling presentations
at Comic/Pop Culture Conventions and other gatherings!
I don't have the biggest or best Spider-Man collection (I know several collectors who have better collections). I do have an awesome collection, and I am thankful for it. My deeply emotional connection to the character is the hallmark of my collection. The emotional connection has been strengthened by many cool interactions with comic creators, other collectors, and a family who supports my hobby.
I have experienced all of Spider-Man’s introductions into various media (cartoons, tv shows, newspaper comic strips, movies, live theater). Even some RARE forms of entertainment, some of which are unknown to even the most experienced of Spider-Man fans.
Another connection to the character: my entire life has been lived in Johnstown, PA, the hometown of Steve Ditko (co-creator of Spider-Man). I was already a mega fan for 25 years before finding out that Ditko was from Johnstown! Over the past few years I have formed friendships with some members of the Ditko family. I have been helping with Ditko family approved projects to honor Mr. Ditko here in his hometown.
I am very passionate about telling the stories of my Spidey-intertwined life experiences, talking about Spidey memorabilia, cosplaying as Spider-Man, and spending time with my family and friends.
My love of Spider-Man has been a wonderful part of my life for well over 50 years now, but not the most important part of my life. I am thankful to God for so many things in life: relationships with loved ones, health, and blessing me and my wife with 24 years of marriage and two wonderful children.
I am now offering THREE different Visual Storytelling presentations!
I also bring rare Spider-Man memorabilia for people to see in-person.
The stories which couldn't be contained in the first presentation!
The “Even MORE Spidey & Me” presentation is the chance for Bruce Wechtenhiser (one of the world’s biggest Spider-Man fans) to tell even MORE stories of connecting with Spider-Man over the past 55 years! This presentation starts off with a super fast recap of the original Spidey & Me presentation. More emotions! More memorabilia! More SPIDEY goodness!
Take a spin on the ultimate sequel!
