This week on Talking Comics we substitute out Stephanie for Rob and bring you a show all about the Wall Crawler, the Web-Head, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man! It’s Peter Parkers 50th anniversary and so we talk about why we love him, some of our favorite story arcs and even shed a few tears about our favorite moments. It isn’t all lovey dovey though as we talk all about the Rob Liefeld situation that occurred over the weekend.
Of course we also tackle our books of the week as Bobby talks about Doctor Manhattan and Brilliant. Steve gives some love to Adventure Time #7 and Ready Player One. Bob pledges his first Kickstarter with Molly Danger, showers love on Mark Waid’s Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom and joins the I Kill Giants love brigade. Our special guest Rob keeps the Spider-Man love going with Amazing Spider-Man #692.
For those of you who listened to the show already, this is the Kickstarter Project that Bob mentioned.
Annnnnnnnnnd… we say it on the show, but just in case you missed it, the Talking Comics crew on Twitter are:
FYI: the gang have brand new avatars on Twitter, Facebook and they’ll be uploaded here to the Talking Comics site shortly. The crew have gone all superhero on the world, thanks to the wonderful Hanie Mohd (a FANTASTIC artist who recently had her art featured in the back of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Captain Marvel #1). Like them? Make sure to follow her and let us know what you think of our new superhero pictures.
