Issue #11: Spider-Man (2000)

Coinciding with the release of Insomniac Games' new project MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN, COMICS ON CONSOLES returns as host CHRIS CLOW takes a look back at one of the most important comic book video games ever created: SPIDER-MAN, developed by Neversoft Games and published by Activision in the year 2000!

Perhaps Marvel Comics' most singular icon, Chris also explores the creation of Spider-Man at the hands of comics creators STAN LEE, STEVE DITKO, and JACK KIRBY, while also delving into the climate of (pretty bad) 3D superhero games that were quickly saved by the Webslinger just in the nick of time.

Plus, Chris announces the subject of ISSUE #12! When you're finished, be sure to listen to ISSUE #11.1, which features the returning discussion portion for this issue's subject game!
