Listen to the show (may take a few seconds to load):
Ultimate Spin looks at a different strand of Spider-Man’s web, namely the ones belonging to Miles Morales, the young man who’d inherited the mantle of great power and responsibility following the death of Peter Parker in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man series, and Spider-Gwen Stacy, an alternate take on the blonde bombshell wherein she took of the mantle of Spider-Woman after Peter Parker’s death.
Whether you’ve been following Miles since he was introduced in 2011 or if you’ve just entered the Spider-Man comics world with Spider-Gwen, the Ultimate Spin the podcast for you.
Ultimate Spin features an international group of Spider-Man fans reviewing and discussing the stories in those two series, as well as chatting about the history of the Ultimate Spider-Man series and what the future has in store for Miles and Gwen.
The Spider-Event of 2016 continues! With Kyle and Jack out of the office this week, Brian is joined once more by Superior Spider-Talk’s Tony Goodwyn and Jaleh Najafali to catch up with Chapters 3 and 4 of Spider-Women! It’s nice to have an event that’s *not* about the end of the world, but do lower stakes = lower interest (and lower sales)? Nevertheless, we’re having a great time with what’s turning out to be a great event – although Jaleh isn’t joining the Cindy fan club anytime soon…

2:36 – Discussion: Cindy visits her family (and we shrug our shoulders), then learns more about her counterpart. Wait, it’s over already? Jaleh saves you $1.
22:00 – Spider-Woman #6: Basic recap
22:31 – Discussion: Fantastic on every level – Jess shines as the lead Spider-Woman for the entire event. Jaleh still doesn’t like Cindy.
