Face it tiger, you just hit the jackpot!

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.

In this episode, Dan and Mark cover the courtship between Peter Parker and Mary Jane. Their relationship hit several key turning points during this run, so they’ll be talking about how they occurred and shaped Peter and Mary Jane into one of the best couples in all of comics. They specifically won’t be talking about the marriage and events that came afterwards, not to avoid any controversy, but because those topics will merit their own episodes in the future.

Joining them for this episode are Brad and Lisa Gullickson from the “Comic Book Couples Counseling” podcast!
