Into The Spider-Verse Review
For our first episode of 2019 we wanted to review Sony's "Into The Spider-Verse" which was a stunning way to end a brilliant year for comic-related film and television. The film also started 2019 by winning the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and all while receiving global praise for an interesting, exciting new look at a character we already know so much about. It's an all-star cast, a heart-felt script and a wonderful reminder of why we all love Spider-Man so much no matter...
