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, Jack and Brian take a closer look at Spider-Men II #2 and are disappointed to find that they’re already losing interest in the miniseries. What went wrong and more importantly, can this train get back on track?
- 0:00 – Intro; A big change for Ultimate Spin
- 3:35 – Spider-Men II #2 – The miniseries takes a disappointing stumble and we try to figure out what happened (and why). Jessica Jones stops by to promote her new series. Miles quits…again. Would this be better read as a trade? Trying to reconcile street-level Miles w/ inter-dimensional adventurer Miles. Shouldn’t Evil Miles be a bigger deal?
- 19:01 – Our three-word reactions to Spider-Men II #2.
- 21:05 – Outro; Listener feedback; What did *you* think of this issue? Let us know!
