Screw It, We're Just Gonna Talk About Spider-Man

Aug 29, 2018

Part 2 of the artist Steve Ditko’s climactic Spider-Man triology - “Man on a Rampage.” All the setup of last issue comes bursting forth in an issue-long explosion of anger and fighting from Spidey! The previous 31 issues are in a way ALL part of a build-up to this story! Kevin and Will, as usual, get into it TOO...

This is it: One of the best stories in the history of Marvel Comics -- maybe ALL comics. It’s a three part story we call “The Master Planner Saga” and it starts here with issue 31 - “If This Be My Destiny.” We get fully into it: what made this trilogy so moving as a story, how it was right before...

A decent issue with a huge continuity error: the gang of uniformed thieves that show up periodically are ACTUALLY a foreshadowing of next issue! DO YOU FIND THIS FASCINATING? Co hosts Will and Kevin do! Plus: Ned Leeds PROPOSES to Betty Brant!

Kevin and Will welcome guests Kait Thompson and Mark David Christenson, the co-hosts of “Aw Crap, A Hellboy Podcast!” We get into: how Ditko makes a great action story out of a not-that-great villain! How JJJ’s cowardice is ratcheted up to farcial levels, and how Peter’s got sexy new duds!

Spidey teams up with Doctor Strange, who happens to be the other big co-creation of Spidey artist Steve Ditko. There’s very little Peter Parker as the two Ditko superheroes battle a pleasantly very evil wizard named Xandu! Ah, HERE’S the great Ditko art we were missing a bit in the last regular issue!
