The Amazing Spider-Man: Death of the Stacy’s Comic Book Retrospective

May 24, 2021

Wes is joined by award-winning comic book editor Joe Corallo and life-long reader Eric Breen to discuss two monumental stories from Amazing Spider-Man. Stan Lee, Gil Kane and John Romita Sr. took another father figure away from Peter Parker in 1970’s ‘Death of George Stacy’ (ASM #88-90)  story arc. Not only is it a testament to the extraordinary skills of Stan Lee and Gil Kane, but it stands the test of time as one of the most impactful death scenes in comic history. Yet somehow a very young Gerry Conway did Stan Lee one better with Gil Kane on art just three years later. ‘The Night Gwen Stacy Died’ (ASM #121) is probably the most impactful death in comic book history. It not only changed Peter Parker Spider-Man, it changed the entire industry. Comic books as a medium grew up and nothing would ever be the same following the death of Peter’s love Gwen Stacy.
