Welcome to a double-dipping of Spidey goodness.  First, the gang heads over to Daredevil 27 to see the Hornhead and the Webhead team-up against the Masked Marauder, who has decreed, "Mike Murdock Must Die!"  Next, Spider-Man falls prey to Blackie Drago who attacks him "On the Wings of the Vulture!" in Amazing Spider-Man 48.  It's a big party, as Karen Page, Mike Murdock, Gwen and MJ, Anna Watson and Aunt May, and of course Harry Osborn all join in for this episode of Amazing Spider-Man Classics!

There are some emails read this time around, so if you would like to have your opinion read on the show regarding the books or our comments on them, drop us a line, and we'll be happy to do it.  You may also follow the show on Twitter.

The month of new #1s continues!  But this time, it's Peter Parker: Spider-Man and Webspinners that get the podcasting treatment from barely legal Jon, pubescent Bertone, and preteen Donovan!  What new plot has Howard Mackie cooked up for the ex-webhead, and will the Gang ever survive the art of Michael Zulli??!!

Welcome back to Amazing Spider-Man Classics for a truly classic issue of the Stan Lee/John Romita era.  We have Gwen, we have Mary Jane, we have Flash, Harry, and the ESU gang, we have Betty and Ned even though we're not sure why, and we have Kraven the Hunter, now with 100% more LASER NIPPLES!!!

And! As a special added treat, Josh and Don finally settle the question once and for all of Gwen and Flash and exactly what happened between them.

Joining us once again is Tyler Crone, whom you have have heard on Of Mercs and MutantsFrom Yellow to Red: A Daredevil Podcast, or as the new regular cohost with me and Zach over at Teenage Wasteland: An Ultimate Spider-Man Podcast.  As a Deadpool expert, he lets us know some of the retcons that have been made to this issue by the Merc with a Mouth, and you'll never look at Anna Watson the same way again!

You've waited.  You've sweated.  You've sued for creator rights and fought over first place in line to see the movie!  Now, here it is, folks!  The next episode of Amazing Spider-Man Classics, yaaaaaayyyy!!!

Today, ladies and gentleman*, we are looking at one episode of Amazing Spider-Man.  We had planned for two, but one took long enough.  And actually, you may see more episodes in the future with only one issue covered.  I'm contemplating the ifs of a format change.

So to join us for this look at Amazing Spider-Man 46 is Tyler Crone, whom you have have heard on Of Mercs and Mutants, From Yellow to Red: A Daredevil Podcast, or as the new regular cohost with me and Zach over at Teenage Wasteland: An Ultimate Spider-Man Podcast.  And he helps us to take a look at the first appearance of the Shocker.  It's full of Silver Spoon goodness and college hijinks galore (but not that kind**).  And, we wrap up with a 1966 YEAR IN REVIEW!!

In the email section, a writer mentions his weekly RPGH podcast, Kicked in the Dicebags, and that he played our promo in one particular episode.  So if RPGs are up your alley, go check out his show.

In the ads, we talk about the ad for the oh-so-NOT-amazing Digi Comp I.  If our descriptions weren't clear or perked your interest, there are some videos here, and here, that show you what this ELECTRONIC COMPUTER BRAIN is all about lol.  Yeah, essentially it is a mechanical binary counter that runs from 0 to 7 in binary.  Possibly "educational", and maybe "fun at parties" for like five seconds, but no way it "solves riddles" or "even tells fortunes," as the ad says.  Yes, it adds.  One at a time.  But no subtraction, multiplication, or memorization.  No clue what those ad writers were smoking (other than the money of underage suckers who read comic books).

There are some emails read this time around, so if you would like to have your opinion read on the show regarding the books or our comments on them, drop us a line, and we'll be happy to do it.

*No, that's not a spelling mistake.  It's supposed to be a joke, a reversal of "lady and gentlemen", like there's a bunch of girls listening to this show but only one random guy.  Get it?  (I know how to spell.)

**I was gonna link to some college porn and decided that might be like crying on the spamphone for spammers to come and spam my site with spam, spammingly.

Hey there, everyone!  Since getting back from SDCC, I'm hard at work on getting the next episode out the door, and I think you'll be able to expect it to land on the first of August.  But in the meantime, here's a special episode where the Classics gang met up in San Diego with Stella and Zach from the Spider-Man Crawlspace podcast, and also once and future guest on the show Eddie deAngelini.  We went and saw Captain America: The First Avenger while there and here is our spoiler-filled review.

The Classics gang is heading into the summer with the weightiest question of all Spider-Man history.  Did Gwen and Flash date?  The answer may surprise you, Marvelites!  Join Jon, Josh, and Don as they take a look at Amazing Spider-Man 44 and 45, which also, by random happenstance, also feature the return of Dr. Curt Connors as the Lizard.

This is it, folks!  This is the one you've been waiting for!  Amazing Spider-Man 42 and 43 bring us the first appearance of Mary Jane Watson, the woman Peter will ask to be his wife in the culmination of all of Aunt May's machinations.  Along for the ride this time is Brad Douglas, webmaster of the Spider-Man Crawl Space, and it wouldn't have been the same without him.  Hope you enjoy the show!

The Rhino's on the Rampage, and the Avengers want Spider-Man to bring in the Hulk!  In other words, just another day at the office for the ASM Classics gang!  This time out, Jon, Josh, and Don are joined by Dr. Bond Benton, professor at SUNY Fredonia.  He actually talks comics in class for a living, so we wanted to have him come share in the fun of classic Spidey goodness!

In Amazing Spider-Man 41, Spidey is faced with the inaugural Rhino adventure, as Jonah Jameson's son John returns from the cobwebs of Spidey's first issue, but what's this he says about SPACE SPORES??!!  Then the Avengers decide they want Spidey on the team, and all he has to do is capture the foe no team of superheroes can withstand -- the incredible HULK!!

Can you believe it?  We've made it through an entire year.  And to celebrate, the Classics gang takes a break from comic coverage to take a look through the DeLorean's rearview mirror at how the show began.  But after a few minutes of that, it's time to break out your DVD players as we watch Spider-Man (2002) with an in-film movie commentary.  Hope you enjoy, and we'll be back with regular comic coverage next episode!

So stay tuned to the end, and in the meantime, you are welcome to send us an email and let us know what you think, or share your thoughts in the comment section below.  And we always enjoy receiving reviews on iTunes, which will also receive response on the show.  Thank you so much for listening!
