In this episode, Brian, Jack, and Kyle jump back to Earth-616 to keep up with our new Spider-Couple in Spider-Gwen #17! Plus, your feedback!
- 0:00 – Intro
- 1:41 – Spider-Gwen #17 – Framing the story vs. telling it. A focus on character vs. spectacle (similar to 2016’s Spider-Women crossover). A third wheel on a second date? Our heroes unmasking: Scripting or Artistic call? Despite the initial fan reaction, is the whole “romance angle” despite fan reaction much ado about nothing?

- 19:09 – Listener Feedback: More thoughts on potential creative voices
- 21:46 – Outro. What did *you* think of this issue (and Gwen and Miles getting together)? Let us know!
