    Spider-Man and Ezekiel, Straczynski & Romita Jr.

    Spider-Man and Ezekiel, Straczynski & Romita Jr.

    This time around we look at Matt's pick of The Amazing Spider-Man, vol. 2 issues #30-35, the first issues written by J.M. Straczynski (teamed up with peak John Romita Jr. on pencils and Scott Hanna on inks). This story arc introduced the character of Ezekiel and perhaps changed our view of Spider-Man himself.

    Claremont's X-Men Takes Off

    Claremont's X-Men Takes Off

    In this longer episode Matt and Damian tackle Giant Sized X-Men #1 and X-Men numbers 94 through 100. We're exploring and considering the beginnings of Chris Claremont's monumental X-Men saga. And of course we have to include the wonderful visuals from Dave Cockrum and the original impetus from idea-smith Len Wein!
    Apologies for the long delay between Never Stay Dead episodes, all the fault of Damian who sat on this episode for about 6 weeks before editing the audio. The next episode will be out much more quickly.

BOOM

Always enjoy hearing discussions about Comics. I skim Comics too easily and love hearing points I missed or getting background info about writers and artists. Great points are brought up and sometimes argued over.

Great conversations!

Matt and Damian are two comic book connoisseurs. I don't always agree with their opinions, but they challenge my attitudes and assumptions about the comics I read. Their love of the medium is apparent, and I recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to listen to thoughtful and intelligent comic book commentary.
