For many, “The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man” (Amazing Spider-Man no. 248) is amongst the greatest Spider-Man stories ever told. It reflects the humanity of the character, his passions, empathies, and frailty on display in a tear-jerking story. But, how was it created?
Join Dan as he invites guest artist Ron Frenz to break down the story, page by page, and discuss Roger Stern’s script and how he translated it to the page.
This episode was edited by Rick Coste, with production support from Andy Myers. Our artwork comes handcrafted by artists Nick Cagnetti, Ron Frenz, Sal Buscema, and Ray Sumser.
