Kray Z Comics and Stories 521: Rebooking The Spider-Man Clone Saga

Joe had a spare afternoon before taking off for Reno for two weeks, so he and Cory!! sat down to play a Rebooking game:

in 1993, the creators on the Spider-Man comics pitched an idea to have Peter Parker find out he was the clone from issue 149 of Amazon Spider-Man, and the character we thought was the clone was the real Peter Parker and had been wandering the country for 5 years.

So, they discuss what would they have done as the Editor of the Spider-Man comics when the Clone Saga was pitched. They discuss:

Why the clone saga was started

What it was supposed to accomplish.
How to avoid the mistakes make in the story
And where would they have gone from there?

Plus, the usual shenanigans and much, much more!
