Gobbledygeek episode 361, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (feat. Nate Curtiss),” is available for listening or download right here and on iTunes here.
Paul and Arlo swing into the Gobbledygeek season 9 finale with a discussion of the latest (and possibly greatest?) Spider-Man movie, Into the Spider-Verse. Popping in from an alternate dimension where “Curtis” has two s’s is their pal Nate Curtiss. The gang discusses how the movie nails the characterizations of Miles Morales and Peter Parker, its dazzling visuals, the film’s message of inclusion, and moviegoers’ animation biases. Plus, Paul and Arlo both make important announcements, and we discuss Miles in both the Spider-Man PS4 game and his own new comic book.
Next: if we’re legally allowed to say this, That’s all, folks! Happy holidays and we’ll see you next year for season 10!

Comics! They’re good for you! But wait, no! They’re also bad! This is an accurate description of the emotional roller-coaster Paul and AJ strap themselves into this week. First up, there’s X-Men: Battle of the Atom, an event the boys are surprised to enjoy chiefly because it’s one of the Big Two’s dreaded “events”; then there’s The Superior Spider-Man, about which there is much rage and sadness and talk of poop. There’s a lot of poop talk. Plus, Jurassic Park and Harry Potter are both going back to the well, and the boys pimp themselves and friends. They’re just a coupla classy guys.
Next: yet more Gobbledy-wonderment.

The third dimension of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, the forthcoming video game in which you traverse four different worlds as four different Spider-Men, has been announced: Spider-Man 2099! Honestly, I’ve got a couple issues of Spider-Man 2099 scattered throughout my collection, but I don’t know much about the character. Paul’s a big fan, but I just know the basics from Wikipedia: “Miguel O’ Hara is a brilliant geneticist who gains his spider-like powers from a gene-splicing incident.”
Regardless, the 2099 teaser looks superb:
I’m really excited for this game; the concept is brilliant, the graphics are great, and Dan Slott wrote the story. Now that we know that three of the dimensions are Amazing, Noir, and 2099, what could the fourth be? I’m banking on Spider-Ham. (Please dear God, let it be Spider-Ham.)
