Comics Misremebered Podcast 100
For me, there were a lot of great things happening in the 90s. There was great music like Pearl Jam and Nirvana. Great Cinema like Dances with Wolves, Silence of the Lambs and Unforgive – actual Oscar winner movies that you wanted to watch! Bill Clinton was in the White House and everything was right in the world…at least for a little bit.
The worst thing we had to worry about was terrible comic story lines. Tonight, for our 100th podcast – we will share with you one of the 90s worst story lines – Spider-man’s Clone Saga.
I don’t remember much about the story. There was some of this…
and then I remember some of this…
I think this happened…
And some other stuff. We go over some details in the podcast. To be honest, the Clone Saga was not that interesting of a story idea. I was more interested in the office politics and stories that they threw away than the actual one that they used.
I think the 90s and this story can be summed up with this cover:
From the gaudy computer graphic font to the specialized, laminated cover – this comic embodies all that was wrong with Marvel and story telling in the 1990s. There is more computer generated stuff on the cover than actual art work! I am glad that this fad passed and we are getting back to story telling again. Mostly getting back.
Jon and I had a blast misremembering this story and recording this podcast. We hope to do 100 more and beyond and we hope you enjoy listening to them.
Your comics pal,
