What they’re saying:

  • Writer Chip Zdarsky: “Working on the original SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY was a dream come true for me. But the problem with the miniseries was that I didn’t have the room to properly tell the life story of one of my all-time favorite characters: J. Jonah Jameson! Getting the chance to revisit this universe with Mark again has been an absolute blast!"
