The “Deck of Cards” Guys (Season 6, Episode 3)

When you need ideas for villains… just turn to your closest deck of cards!

In this season of the Amazing Spider-Talk, Dan and Mark are going back to the mid-80’s when the Amazing Spider-Man title was handed over to one of the most legendary creative pairings in comics, who were just starting their creative partnership: Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz. It was a time of immense change in the comics industry but together Tom and Ron returned Spider-Man to its Ditko-inspired roots to create one of the most beloved runs on the title.

That’s right, it’s the latest installment of our THE BAD GUYS series and this time we are talking about how Tom and Ron created a series of bad guys from a deck of animal-themed cards. And we couldn’t have this conversation without returning guests Kevin and Will Hines from the “Screw It, We’re Just Gonna Talk About Comics” podcast.
