Manga Mavericks @ Movies #27: “Spider-Man: Homecoming”


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the best Spider-Man film yet! With it swinging its way into box office success, we’re releasing our review of the last critically acclaimed Spider-Man film…last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming! We’re joined by our resident comics history connoisseur and all-around Spider-geek Vix to discuss how faithful Homecoming was to Spider-Man’s history and how it compares to other film and television interpretations of the character! Of course, any podcast with Vix is sure to weave webs of wild tangents, to the point we decided to cut out an hour of this recording and turn it into its own separate episode! Still, we spent over a good hour and a half focused on Homecoming, so get into the swing of it and listen away!
