A very loose and Marvel-centric opening, Vampires, Stan Lee, and the scoop on The Amazing Spider-man video game as well as our favorite interactive comic book adaptations…

Livin on the edge, fighting crime, slinging web…
Spectacular Spectacular Spiderman.
Wow you actually used that song, I didnt know when I was typing^
That song has been stuck in my head all day because of you
That show should not have been canceled for “ultimate spiderman”…
I have not seen a single episode of Ultimate Spider-Man
Tag = Cartoon Christmas? You sneaky devil Chris.
The Backround Music goes crazy about 20 minutes in and makes the podcast unlistenable 🙁
yeah, what up with that?
Same here. Gonna try and power through it anyway.
Yep, been listening up to that point. Really strange. At least it’s only temporary but a fix is needed if possible.
@ 26:50 if you are looking to fix it lasertime guys.
What the hell is up with the music??? Can barely hear people talking. 😛
The music at 27 minutes drowns you guys out. I can’t hear what you’re saying
It was something about priest and preacher.
The film and the other series.
It sounds like you guys are having an interesting conversation,but the loud music in background makes so you CAN”T HEAR IT! WTF UP THE BUTT!
This Cape Crisis randomly turned into a VGMpire…
Ah, awesome. Funnily enough I’ll probably listen to this while ploughing through collectibles in the new Spiderman game.
Terrible background vocals.
Hmm thought that was posting to the comment above you.
I can’t hear you guys over the music.
Yeah I agree wholeheartedly. It was way too loud… I listen to VGMpire for that, not Cape Crisis…
Gahhhh!! The background music is too much!! I like background music as much as the next person, but this is ridiculous! D:
Guys, what the hell is with the music in this episode? I like game music, but I’ll listen to VGM when it want it to be the main focus, but here I want to UNDERSTAND the conversation. Re-release with fixed mix, please?
Must…wait until work tomorrow…to listen…or will be so bored…
Also, I picture Chris looking and these comments, realizing that there was a hiccup in the audio, and letting out a long, long string of curses.
Just read Avengers Vs. X-men #6 holy shit pretty much every character is a giant fucking cynical asshole, I can’t believe the honorable mighty Thor knees some some kid in the stomach when the Avengers come to kidnap a girl how heroic!
The loud music was pretty hysterical. Batman Returns?
It sounds like some guys were dragged to a club who didn’t want to be there and were determined to maintain a conversation over the music
Hey Chris, you don’t need the Marvel app to redeem the free book codes. You redeem it on Marvel’s website, connect your comixology account to it and the free comics will appear in your purchased comics section of the comixology app.
How do you connect your comixology account to Marvel’s website? I’ve looked and can’t find it on either site. 🙁
*insert music comment here*
Seriously though, bring back Mitchy D!
The Michael Caine bit was perfect. “Master Wayne, you have to pick up your Legos… And you haven’t.” That fucking killed me!
the lego gotham deserves
Your legos must be more severe.
thank you for the steve ditko doc. Very interesting, especially the part with Stan Lee, may he rest in peace (ed.- this comment takes place one week from all futures).
Can’t wait to hear Henry’s thoughts on the Amazing Spiderman game. Got it on my lovefilm rental list but might take it off if he is down on it
Uninformed political tweets were bad enough, but eight minutes of unlistenable garble was the toughest sit of all. >_<
So um, was that a teaser for a Batman VGMpire in a few weeks? lol
that Ditko interview sounds SO awesome.
I GOTTA’ SEE IT!
also… FUCK THAT!
i don’t believe marvel or any company major or independent should be publishing digital comics with a print comic cover price! NO NO NO!
it’s stupid and it’s going to keep the industry from progressing. Digital is the best thing that could have happened to comics, they production is almost cut in half total, and so the production cost is as well. Thus the cover price should be less. LESS!
if they keep trying to play nice with comic book stores EVERYONE IS GOING TO LOSE IN THE END!
it’s like hollywood trying to hold up the theater chains and return sales instead of going with that one proposed idea to have the dvd availible to purchase in the lobby AS you’re leaving the theater.
we can’t keep trying to maintain these old relationships if we are to progress as mediums.
all those guys were useful a long time ago, but the times they have changed.
I think it was best said in Scrooged w/ bill murray.
“I’m gonna give you a little advice, Claire… Scrape ’em off. You wanna save somebody? Save yourself!” that’s the only way the comics industry is going to survive, especially if they’re going to move into the digital realm. no one is gonna put up with this 4 dollar digital comics shit for too much longer.
aaaaaaand finally… once i got passed the audio hiccup…
I was completely okay with the extra long “what’cha readin'” segment
I like listening to you guys talk comics. and with all of you enjoying different things
it makes for good conversation.
good conversation = good podcast
text wall is a wall of text
“it’s stupid and it’s going to keep the industry from progressing.”
It’s also the only thing keeping comic shops from dying.
Follow them on twitter.
New file posted without audio issues.
I couldn’t hear half the episode
is it fixed?
For as flawed as it is …which it is ..a bunch, the Original X-men game for the Sega Genesis, (with the archangel drive by) blew my mind. Even if killing an enemy sounded like squeezing Nickelodeon Sqwand through your fingers, it had Sabertooth in his new costume, (I’m a big sabretooth mark).
Is the 3DS version of Thor the same as the DS version?
You guys need to do a lego dark knight skit
Chris: Michael Cain Alfred
Henry: Tom Hardy Bane
Brett: Christian Bale Batman
So about 30 minutes in, you have the music blaring for about 5 mins and I couldn’t hear a thing you guys were talking about. I would have much rather heard the conversation.
SORRY ABOUT THE TECHNICAL ISSUES! The show has been fixed and reuploaded. Filename: “CapeCrisis_ep18_0628” = BAD
Filename: “CapeCrisis_Ep19_0629” = GOODER
Just watched in search for steve ditko on youtube, and it was amazing. Very very interesting, and it definitely gave me a new appreciation for the man
When he said he wasn’t really a fan of Hickman’s current FF run, my brain ’bout ‘sploded.
I’m so mad that the Web of Shadows is so expensive right now. Weeks ago, when it was first mentioned in this podcast, I checked in amazing and it was almost 40 bucks! That’s insane! that game is OLD!
It was fun to see how that old game is more expensive than the two newer Beenox games. I think that says something about Beenox as a missguided developer.
This podcast was a lot of fun to listen to. Specially because I love Spiderman.
I think I picked up Web of Shadows a yearish ago for $10? Still unopened!! yay me
