THE FIRST, WORST SPIDER-MAN COMICS?
With the hasty exit of Marv Wolfman as the writer of Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel had to scramble to find a replacement. So, they turned to another legendary writer in the Spider-Office: Denny O’Neil. Famous for his historic runs on Green Lantern/Green Arrow and Batman, Denny’s run of Amazing Spider-Man books are probably the most overlooked, under-printed, and forgotten issues in Spidey’s 60-year publishing history. On this week’s show, Dan and Mark will explore why it is that Denny O’Neil’s run represents Spidey’s true “Lost Years”!
