Spider-Rama: Amazing Spider-Man #99

Welcome to Spider-Rama! Every weekday until the end of May, Ben and Duy will look at a Spider-Man issue from the very beginning, in chronological order, and answer questions for various categories, inspired in large part by one of our favorite podcasts, The Rewatchables by The Ringer. Our goal is to make it to Amazing Spider-Man #200. Will we make it? Grab your Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus or crank up your tablet to Marvel Unlimited, and then tune in every Wednesday to find out!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #99
by Stan Lee, Gil Kane, and Frank Giacoia

Can Spider-Man stop a prison break before his date with Gwen?




POINTLESS TRIVIA 

BEN: Peter Parker becomes a part-time Bugle staff photographer.

DUY: I must have read the three preceding issues a bunch of times, and also the next few succeeding issues. And I swear I have never read this, or have no recollection of it.

BEN: I think I’m with you there.

WHAT'S AGED THE BEST?

BEN: I like when Peter periodically stands up to Jonah.



WHAT'S AGED THE WORST?

DUY:  I do not like the art.







BEN: Weird angles on those.

DUY: The previous issues looked fine. I'm thinking it was the Romita inks.

NITPICKS

DUY:
A warrant for what, exactly?


BEN: Is there a warrant on him for Capt Stacy?

DUY: And not that I disagree with him or anything, but when did Peter care about bigger social issues?


BEN: This reminds me of a Simpsons bit I can’t place. Have you not learned your lesson, Pete?




FAVORITE PANEL

DUY:
This issue is peak Peter and Gwen.



BEN: They definitely did it after dinner.

DUY: 100%

WHO WON THE COMIC? 

DUY: Gwen Stacy.

BEN: It’s amazing what wonders it can do for a character when they’re not constantly crying or in a state of hysteria..

DOES ROBBIE KNOW? 

BEN: Is that the face of a man that doesn’t know exactly how he got those photos?



DUY: That's it for Spider-Rama this week. 

BEN: Thank you, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko— 

DUY: —for telling us we aren't the only ones.
