Untold Talks of Spider-Man Episode 12: Spectacular Spider-Man #215-216 “The Predator and the Prey”

You ever want to see Mac (not Mark, as some people may have you believe) Gargan sipping a cappuccino in a sewer?

Join hosts Cain Winstead, Matthew Deragisch and special guest Adam Chapman from the Comic Shenanigans podcast as they dive though the untouched corners and forgotten tales of the Spider-Man library on a hunt for lost gems and what it truly means to be a Spider-Man story.

In this episode of Untold Talks of Spider-Man, Cain, Matt, and Adam discuss THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #215-216 “THE PREDATOR AND THE PREY”, the story that leads straight into the first arc of the Clone Saga. The credits on this one are doozy: while both issues were plotted and drawn by Tom DeFalco and Sal Buscema respectively, #215 was scripted by Mike Lackey and colored by Glynis Oliver, while #216 was scripted by Todd DeZago and colored by Joe Andreani.  Tune in to hear the discussion on sewer fights, IRS scams, the Scorpion’s role in Spider-Man’s oeuvre, and more!

Untold Talks of Spider-Man Episode 10: Web of Spider-Man #8-9 “Local Superhero!” & “The Twilight Heroes”

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man finds himself in the rural countryside of Pennsylvania looking into rumors about a hero named the Smithville Thunderbolt!

Join hosts Cain Winstead and Matthew Deragisch as they dive though the untouched corners and forgotten stories of the Spider-Man library on a hunt for lost gems and what it truly means to be a Spider-Man story.

In this episode of Untold Talks of Spider-Man Cain and Matt welcome Brian Jacob from the Ultimate Spin podcast on as a guest as they discuss WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #8-9 “LOCAL SUPERHERO!” & “THE TWILIGHT HEROES”.  Tune in to hear the discussion on this truly off-the-wall, unique Spider-Man story that strips almost everything familiar from the character’s surroundings. Web of Spider-Man might have been the third-tier Spider-Man title, but can you still have Spider-Man outside of New York with entirely new (and never again used!) characters? You’ve gotta listen for the answer to this and more!
