Six sinister welcomes to all you Spider-Fans out there who have returned for another round of shenanigans with Jon, Josh, Don, and our guest this month, Michael Bailey (of Views from the Long Box).
This episode we have served up for you a full plate of Spider-Man annual goodness from 1964 as Spider-Man tackles the Sinister Six! Along the way, Dr. Octopus meets his future beloved and Aunt May acts like she smoked a fatty before the story started.
We also read emails this time around, and a letter from Stephen Lacey references a Silver Age Superman review that can be found here.
And, as always, here is some awkward art, just for you!
But there was also some oh-so-awesome art in this issue. If you’d like to see what I mean, here are links to the full-page Ditko splashes of Spider-Man tackling each of the Sinister Six!
And that ties up what were to be our June episodes. We have another set of three coming at you later in July as soon as our next guest co-host comes back from a vacation trip. We’ll be bringing you the funny from Amazing Spider-Man 17-20 and The Avengers 11, so hang in there! In the meantime, write us and tell us what you think of the show. Even have your words read on the air to an audience of hundreds! You may send us an email, follow us on Facebook, or leave a review on iTunes. See you next time!!
Welcome to our latest episode of Amazing Spider-Man Classics, the show dedicated to covering every feature book, as well as every guest and cameo appearance we can find of the amazing Spider-Man. Our June episodes are a bit behind due to scheduling conflicts, but we think you’ll find they’ll be worth the wait. This week, Michael Bailey (of Views from the Long Box) joins Jon, Josh, and Don to take a look at Tales to Astonish 57 and Amazing Spider-Man 16, and it’s quite the wild ride. And the daughter Lily makes a cameo along the way.
Just a word of warning, Spider-philes. We’re talking about Hank Pym this issue, and what is the most common single topic in regard to the Pyms? Did you say wife-slapping? Yes, indeedy! And the ASM Classics gang takes the topic to bold new frontiers in the latest episode. So have a laugh with us!
Speaking of laughs, here are some awesome pictures.
During the course of the episode, our guest Michael Bailey mentions that Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel would eventually write for Strange Tales. He did this under the nom de plume of Joe Carter for issues 112 and 113, introducing us to kooky villains the Eel and the Plantman. Little FYI there for you…
So, there you go, fellas and fellettes. As for the next ep, I say in there that it should be about a week, but it may be more like ten days because in a week, I have my Spanish final, but I’ll do my best! Make sure to write us in and let us know what you think. You may send us an email, follow us on Facebook, or leave a review on iTunes. Come back next time for the Sinister Six!!
