(Recorded April 17, 2016)
The Spider-Event of 2016 is here! Kyle and Brian are joined by Superior Spider-Talk’s Tony Goodwyn and Jaleh Najafali to catch up with the first two chapters of Spider-Women! How does something as simple as brunch go so colossally wrong for Spider-Gwen, Spider-Women, and Silk? Plus we announce the winner of our latest variant cover giveaway contest!
- 0:00 – Intros
- 3:51 – Spider-Women Alpha: Basic recap
- 5:11 – Discussion: The event kicks off, but it’s more about character than spectacle (and that’s fantastic). Getting to know our leads, but the artwork is a surprising hurdle.
- 24:00 – Radioactive Spider-Gwen #7: Basic recap
- 25:03 – Discussion: A surprisingly hilarious turn with outstanding art, humor, and heart. How does the idea of “family” drive each of our heroes?
