Variant is a weekly web show that covers everything about comics including graphic novels, movies, TV, and games. The show caters to new readers, hardcore fans, and everyone in between. When host/co-creator of Variant Arris Quinones told me that he was working on an episode covering the history of Spider-Man, I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. And today is that day! If you’re like me and became a Spider-Man fan from the cartoon in the 90’s and recent movies, there’s a lot to learn here. Now is the perfect time to check out some classic Spider-Man comics to prepare you for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
