Across the Spider-Verse Mailbag + Spider-Man: India w/ Nikesh Shukla

In This Episode

On this episode of X-Ray Vision, Jason Concepcion and Rosie Knight’s spidey senses are tingling! In the Airlock (1:04) they answer your arachnophile questions after watching Across the Spider-Verse. Then, in a return of the Omnibus (18:38) Jason explores the world and lore of Spider-Man 2099 in Marvel comics. Then, in the Hive Mind (30:11) Jason and Rosie are joined by Nikesh Shukla, award winning author and writer of the new Spider-Man India comic series to discuss seeing the character brought to life in Across the Spider-Verse, how he collected comics in the 1990s, what he loves about Spidey, and what kind of Spider-Man story he wanted to tell.
