Loved it since the Ditko Spider-Man episodes

The FF was fun but not my favorite material so it’s hard to get into it and admittedly the issues were uneven in quality.When the material is good there enthusiasm is amazing.The bonus WATCHMEN Episode is just wonderful.

Just pick a format, stick to it, and stop explaining it

At least 40% of this podcast is discussing and rehashing the format of the show. And then recapping both the prior formats and the then-current format at the top of each episode. (Otherwise I like these dudes.)

The “I don’t care” drinking game

Here is a good drinking game. Every time Jimmy Linguine says the following, take one shot:I don’t knowI don’t careDo what you wantI used to work for CBSIpump and dumpit doesn’t matter to meSHUT UP KOI, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUTPro-level: Drink continuously from a pitcher of beer whenever the podcast grounds to a halt while the hosts look up something on their smart phones.

AMAZING and FANTASTIC!!

You guys rock. I thoroughly enjoyed the screw it Spidey run and could not have been happier to see you guys decide to continue with Fantastic Four and more. I have been a huge Spiderman fan for the majority of my life and only read the first issue of Spiderman until your podcast. After hearing a what you guys said about the original run of FF I had to go read it and now you guys are going through it. So happy and excited. Your banter reminds me so much of my brothers and myself and so many things hit home with your podcast. Glad to have you guys back for another season and hope to be a long time listener!!Excelsior!-Wes

Reintroduction

These cohosting brothers have opened up the door to a whole new room where the real Spider-Man was located. I casually knew bits to this character and know thankfully because of this podcast I can say I know so much more and appreciate Spider-Man that much more as well. I look forward to every episode these guys do. Keep doing them.

Great that’s all I want to hear about

Please don’t stop when Ditko stops. I need you to compare Romita and Ditko. This podcast is so good. I love when they talk about the anatomy of characters. If you 60’s marvel comic art this is your podcast.

Love these guys!!!

I feel like this podcast was made just for me. With all the buzz and excitement that the Disney/Marvel movies produce it’s nice that these brothers go back to the source material. They dissect each Stan Lee Steve Ditko issue much like they are studying for an exam. Thank you for all the hard work and fun you put into this podcast. I eagerly await the next one and this has quickly become my favorite podcast of the week. I really hope you go past issue 40.

It shouldn’t be as good as it is.

Will and Kevin can manage two, usually antithetical, styles: Being concise and nuanced. So, yeah. Why are you reading reviews for a free podcast anyway? Just listen to an episode.

I love this podcast!!

If you love the original run of Spider-Man comics as much as I do, this podcast is truly a gift. It is simple and satisfying. Will and Kevin are genuinely funny together and their shared love of these stories paired with their sharp wit makes this show a must for hardcore and casual Spidey fans alike. Good hosts=good show. Kevin and Will have great voices, great timing, and the implicit history they share as brothers adds it's own subliminal story to what you are hearing. What is great about the show is the hosts' deep reverence for these stories while being fully aware these books were never intended for such deep analysis. The fascinating thing is that there is so very much to find in these colorful pages drawn for children and young adults half a century ago...

Awesome

I love hearing about how much Spider-Man and Peter Parker played a role in the lives of the hosts. Anyone who's a fan of the ol' web-slinger will relate. The detail and thought put in to the breakdown of each frame is interesting and a more fun analysis than you would typically come across when reading or listening to discussion of comic book characters. Great job!

Two Great Hosts. One Great Topic

The Webhead means a lot to me and he clearly means a lot to the Hines brothers. Looking forward to taking this journey with them.
