That’s right, Faithful Listeners…Matt, Garen, & Steve nosedive into one of the most controversial topics in comic book history….Spider-Man – One More Day! We’ve been planning this one for almost two months now….and it’s finally here. We dissect all the pros and cons of the story and reflect upon personal opinions and lasting memoirs from the story, as well as document the fallout from the status quo-shift after the book’s conclusion. We also take a 20/20 hindsight look back at the long-term consequences of One More Day and whether or not the decision was a good or bad one. Lastly, we analyze the Peter Parker/Mary Jane relationship in great detail and convey how the infamous ret-con of One More Day changed their relationship for good or bad.

The Uncanny Podcast 006 – Forever Evil

Image

Matt, Garen, & Steve return with a vengeance! The terrible trio pontificate upon the greatness that is Forever Evil, the most recent blockbuster event from DC Comics. Garen receives a rousing round of appraisement upon returning from his long, arduous journey into the dark depths of the USMLE examination, a journey from which Garen ultimately proved victorious.

Additionally, Steve exhaustively elaborates on his acceptance of a new position within the show (again), and Matt finds another person to hold him accountable for his actions other than his wife. It’s a big deal. We also hear from a couple of our Faithful Listeners (yes, Faithful Listeners is capitalized: no, Steve did not hold Matt accountable for this).
Lastly, Steve hits us with yet another out-of-left-field, nonsensical expression that discredits and defies English speakers and expression makers everywhere. Can you find it hidden in the show?
Tune in for subsequent shenanigans.
