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.
In this episode, Brian, Kyle, and Jack welcome Superior Spider-Talk’s Dan Gvozden to discuss the long-awaited Spider-Men II #1. After five years and a radically different Marvel landscape, is it too late for this sequel? Why is there suddenly tension between Peter and Miles (and Jack and Kyle)?
