Episode #9: The Amazing Spider-Man #362 & 363

When it comes to comic book characters who were conceived in and then went onto dominate the 90s there are a few heavy hitters. Spawn and Cable probably leap to people’s minds. But on the villain front it’s hard to argue that there’s any character more 90s than the Spider-Man foe known as Carnage. In this episode, host Nathaniel Wayne takes on the super powered serial killer’s first story arc.
