In October 2000, Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley launched Ultimate Spider-Man and it quickly became the the ultimate success story for the ultimate line. Benis and Bagley held the record for the longest continual run on a Marvel comic series by two people. Having one creative team for so long allowed Ultimate Spider-Man to take chances and explore the world of a teenage Peter Parker in ways readers hadn’t experienced before. It takes seven issues to retell Peter’s origins, filling in details that were never explored. But not just that, the entire series rebuilds the legacy of Spider-Man from the ground up. And not just with Peter but the entire cast of villains and supporting characters. 
 
Ultimate Spider-Man is a complete rebooting of Spider-Man, not a retelling. Some elements stay the same (the core of the character) but others change. Those changes might seem drastic at times, but the longer you read the more you realize in ways they’re improvements.
 
Listen as Kriss & Dpalm discuss the first 10 volumes (Issues 1 - 59) of Ultimate Spider-Man.

We are back!

A new season of Supergirl, with yet another fresh premiere episode!  Kara isn't moping-she's saving the world since Superman is on Argo doing things.  We are introduced to Nia Nal, who is Kara 2.0 from season 1, a fact that is not lost on Kara.  J'onn is part of a alien support group navigating how to be alien in a world that isn't hospitable to them, and struggling to get that message across to Kara, who is an alien who looks like the all American girl and can't fathom the fact that an incident can be both a hate crime and part of a larger plot.  Alex is navigating her new role as director of the DEO, and Lena is trying to figure out how to help James navigate some looming legal issues.  We also see splinter Kara and what she's been up to all this time.

This show continues to cover real world issues with ease.  The allegory of being seen, and how being seen looks different depending on a number of factors, is so poignant given the current societal climate.
