It's time to enter the Spider-Verse once again, as we revisit a world where Gwen Stacy became Spider-Woman. It's Spider-Gwen!

We already read the introductory issue back when we covered Edge of Spider-Verse, but now we dive into the first 5 issues of the ongoing series from 2015 (before it got relaunched with a new #1 later in 2015).

Then, we get back into the main story of Knightfall with Chapter 15 in Batman #498, where Bane takes over the city while Robin & Alfred tell lies and beat up cars.

Next Time: We're taking a short summer vacation, but we'll be back in 4 weeks to march toward the Death of Captain America with Captain America (2004) #18-24.

This show's been going for over 200 episodes and somehow we've never covered Days of Future Past? It's only two issues too, a nice little self-contained story by Chris Claremont and John Byrne in Uncanny X-Men #141-142 (but we talked about the whole trade which contains #138-143).

Then we continue our long read of Knightfall with Chapter 14 in Showcase'93 #8, in which Two-Face holds a legally accurate mock trial.

Next Time: Spider-Gwen (2015) #1-5
