Brian and Jack welcome Superior Spider-Talk’s Jaleh Najafali back to the show to discuss the long awaited debut of the Gwenom arc in Spider-Gwen #25!
- 0:00 – Intro – Welcome back, Jaleh!
- 2:50 – Spider-Gwen #25 – This long awaited issue skillfully balances darkness and light and delivers a fresh take on Venom. Marvel Legacy and using four recaps in one issue (no matter how great they are, cover songs rarely outshine the original). Dizzying fight sequence and Frank steals Gwen’s moment. Is anyone not crushing on Matt Murderdock? Quiet heartbreak and the power of color.
- 24:36 – Our three-word summaries of this issue.
