Episode 115- Women in Comics 05- The Wildest (and Cutest) Web-Swinger of All!- Spider-Girl #01 (with Scott Ryfun)

Trentus Magnus September 29, 2015

In this week’s ball-ambushing episode, Magnus wraps up the megaseries about women in comics, cleverly titled Women in Comics, by reading Spider-Girl #01 written by Tom DeFalco and drawn by Pat Oliffe. This title is to Spider-Man what Batman Beyond is to Batman… a sentiment somewhat agreed with by this week’s guest, Scott Ryfun (of Dinner 4 Geeks fame).

Magnus and Scott go through this issue with a fine-toothed comb. Scott actually agreed to discuss the first four issues of this series but His Excellency was so in awe of this issue’s awesome splendor and splendid awesomeness that there was only time for the one issue. Scott was a good sport about it and agreed to return in the future to discuss the next three issues.

As to this week’s subject matter, what’s so special about this comic that people still talk about it over 15 years later? More importantly, did our brave hosts enjoy this comic?

Wouldn’t answering that question here defeat the point of listening to both hours of Magnus and Scott’s discussion?

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “Magnus cites five reasons why Spider-Girl is the best thing to happen to Spider-Man in the 1990’s; #3 will make you giggle”.

Because of the virtual blitzkrieg of ass-kickery this week, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week.

But don’t let that get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, the leader permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
