'Marvel's 616' Director David Gelb's Favorite Marvel Memories

The director sits down with the 'Marvel's Pull List' podcast to talk 'Spirits of Venom' and more!

Face front for Marvel's Pull List, symbiote superfans!

This week, your hosts Ryan "Agent M" Penagos and Tucker Markus welcome Marvel's 616 director David Gelb to break down one of the most delightfully devious crossovers in Spider-Man history: SPIRITS OF VENOM!

SPIRITS OF VENOM: Part 1

David discusses his early favorites as both a comic book reader and filmmaker before detailing how his fandom of floppies like SPIRITS OF VENOM helped shape his creative vision. Plus, he gives a special look inside PETER PARKER, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN (1976) #189, explaining what makes it one of his favorite Spidey stories of all time.
