We share your thoughts and reflections on Miles’ series, and we have a major announcement about the future of the podcast. All kinds of feelings in this episode!

  • 1:53 – Intro; Welcome back, Dan!

  • 5:32 – Spider-Man #240 – A terrifying real-life moment informs the final chapter of a nearly two decade run. But does it work in context? Looking at how Bendis cleared the decks for the next creative team (a way to potentially lose the new powers? Jefferson’s new last name?). Not the best ending, but perhaps the best one possible? Looking back on Miles’ story  and our favorite moments.
