Spider-Gwen #29 and Spider-Man #238
In this episode, Brian and Jack take a closer look as all hell breaks loose for Gwen and her arch-enemy in Spider-Gwen #29! Then the Sinister Six *FINALLY* puts their plan into action in Spider-Man #238!
- 0:00 – Intro. Spider-Man colorist Justin Ponsor needs our help!
- 4:47 – Spider-Gwen #29 – Two guys discuss a story about two guys discussing a story about Spider-Gwen. An extended fight sequence that packs as many emotional punches as it does physical ones. Considering a conversation all the way back in issue 3 and wondering what the future might hold for The Life of Gwen Stacy.
- 20:11 – Our three word summaries of the issue.
- 20:34 – Spider-Man #238 – The Sinister Six (Seven) finally have their moment! Sandman as moral compass. Spidey saves the day (sort of). The non-drama of Barbara’s discovery. An underwhelming arc, but trying to appreciate the bigger picture. Feeling fatigued with playing it safe.
- 38:37 – Our three word summaries of the issue and Listener Feedback.
- 43:45 – Outro; What did *you* think of these issues? Let us know! And coming up…
