- 0:00 – Intro; How did we jump to from #21 to #234?
- 4:21 – Spider-Man #234 – HE’S BACK. What could this mean for Miles and his family? Jack has a grim prediction. The family ties that bind for more than one of our heroes. Silent Heroism. Is Barbara’s new status a disservice to her character? Great high school drama, but too compressed?
