After an unexpected hiatus (while Hal learned to edit audio), The Stack is back with Kraven's Last Hunt, one of the greatest Spider-man stories every published. The book should be unreadable (lion vest? Check. Forced literary allusions? Check? Mopey MJ? Check. A villain named Vermin? Check.), but the story works beautifully and is worthy of any collection. Join Chris and Hal with special guest host Mike as we dig into what makes Kraven tick.
The Stack: more fun than a room full of hallucinogenic spiders.

What do you get when you combine Bruce Willis, bioterrorism, and an experimental French film that resembles a PowerPoint deck? You get 12 Monkeys, Terry Gilliam's time-travel movie - well, other time travel movie - that manages to be both trippy and brilliant despite a distressingly low number of actual monkeys.
The Stack: we also exist in a time loop.

Who benefits? YOU benefit from the return of the Stack!
In our third season premiere we are talking about DC's IDENTITY CRISIS, by Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales.
Join us as we talk about DC's grand plans and difficult material. And Joss Whedon gets mentioned, because apparently that's impossible to avoid these days.
The Stack: not even Zatanna can stop us.
