Off The Panel Classic - Ultimate Spider-Man



In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, Aristo' Alex and Jam' James turn back the clock to the year 2000, when MTV's irrelevance was still relevant, America could not care less about the electoral process, and Spider-Man was being rebooted for what was certainly going to be the only time. What began as a last-ditch effort from a dying company to reach a new audience would soon become a cultural touchstone for an entire generation of comics fans, and for over 100 issues Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley crafted a run whose highs, lows, and filler issues would shape the medium for years to come. Listen as our past selves share their own experiences with the book that helped cement their love of comics, and talk about that time Gwen Stacy became Carnage.
