Super Hero Speak – #91: Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz

This week the Dave and John sit down with one of the best creative teams to ever work in comics, Tom Defalco and Ron Frenz! They talk about some of the highlights and best moments of their careers. They tell us all about Spider-Man, Thor and  of course Spider-Girl. Ron shares with us about how he came up with the design of Superman Blue and Tom shares with us the tale of how the Clone Saga came to be. Don’t groan at that last part, because without the Clone Saga the idea of Mayday Parker, Spider-Girl, would have never been born. Plus Tom gives us a new way of looking at Thor we never thought of before. So sit back, relax and enjoy one of the best conversations ever with 2 comic book giants!
