CSC Episode 70: Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider & Spider-Geddon

In 2016, Ben Reilly returned. We hated it. Covered in Episode 62, we discussed the story that brought about the return of the character… and while I hated that story, I attempted to give it a shot, especially when Josh and I interviewed him in Episode 64. So, Zach goes through the 25 issues of the storyline, before jumping into the Spider-Geddon Story Arc that ran from Oct-December 2018. (Effectively catching up from every appearance in Spider-Clone-related stories). So, enjoy the final solo effort, at least for now before we resume our regularly scheduled programming.

CSC Episode 10: Players and Pawns, ASM 400, Aftershocks (April 1995)

There are certain episodes of books that are iconic. For many, ASM 400 was a bright spot in the sea of darkness when the Clone Saga was coming out.

This episode features the end of the Players and Pawns two-parter, The Gift, a one-shot with a cliffhanger, and Aftershocks, the aftermath of ASM 400.
