    Other People’s Bad Guys (Season 5, Episode 5)

    Other People’s Bad Guys (Season 5, Episode 5)

    One of the components that had long dominated Spider-Man comics was a strict adherence to facing Spidey off against rogues invented by Ditko and Lee. However, Roger Stern had other ideas and chose to specifically avoid featuring Spidey’s rogues gallery.

    Instead, his Spider-Man stories pitted Spidey against the villains of his heroic peers. That’s right, today on the Amazing Spider-Talk we are talking about Bad Guys, more specifically we will be talking about… Other People’s Bad Guys!

    But we couldn’t do this alone! Other People’s Bad Guys demands other people! So, we’ve brought on the cohosts of the Screw It! We’re Going to Talk About Comics podcast, brothers Kevin and Will Hines!

    Spider-Man “Beyond” Reaction

    Spider-Man “Beyond” Reaction

    A brand new age of Amazing Spider-Man is on the horizon!

    No, that’s not a veiled reference to Horizon Labs… but to the Beyond Corporation. That’s because this week we got our first preview of what would be happening to Amazing Spider-Man after Nick Spencer leaves the title in a few weeks. Dubbed “Spider-Man Beyond”, this new story will be helmed by writers Zeb Wells, Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar and Patrick Gleason and feature Ben Reilly back under the mask as New York’s new Spider-Man. Additionally, it seems that Peter might be sidelined, with his life placed on the line!

    In this episode, Dan and Mark discuss this news, their anticipation for the title, and their thoughts on the new creative team.

    Annual #3: The Green Goblin Unmasked

    Annual #3: The Green Goblin Unmasked

    In April 2020, Dan Gvozden received a package from a “mysterious benefactor” who eventually revealed himself to be “Norman Osborn”. A mystery inside of a mystery, with too many suspects to count. But soon that mystery evolved into something that spanned the globe and threatened Dan and his wife Amy Gvozden’s marriage. After 15 months of reporting, detective Erin Ginocchio takes out everything she’s got – interviews and documents and letters – to shake it all out, and to see what sticks. Until she discovers a secret message from Dan, and he’s got a big surprise for Erin that shakes her to her core…









    “Annual” is a true-crime podcast produced by Dan Gvozden and Amazing Spider-Talk. We strongly advise you to start listening with episode one of the series.

    You can follow the clues with each episode (see below) to help us crack this very real and very much ongoing case. Can you figure out who Norman Osborn is?

    This episode was painstakingly edited by Rick Coste. Our theme songs were pilfered from Nick Thorburn for parodic use. Featuring the voice talents of Erin Ginocchio, Mark Ginocchio, Dan Gvozden, Amy Gvozden, Rick Coste, Wyatt Unger, Parker Rouse, and Andy Myers.

    If you want to discuss Spider-Man and the events of the “Annual” miniseries, we’d love to see you on our Amazing Spider-Slack community board and the #AnnualTalk channel. If you’d like to join in on our amazing conversations, click this link to get started:

I was in the biggest fan of spider-man ever since I was young so I would recommend this to anyone else who loves spider-man.

Great conversations

This is a great podcast. Both hosts are funny and intelligent and have great observations and detailed conversations that I really enjoy. They know their history and continually point out things that I didn't notice or fully understand when reading an issue. Perfect for the Spider-Man lover that really wants to have these type of deep conversations but can't in a world full of J. Jonah Jamesons. Keep up the good work!
