This topic was inspired by a Games Radar Top Ten list of the best Spider-Man artists of all-time. Their list stirred some controversy among the hosts, so they breakdown who they feel was ranked too high, too low or not at all. Be sure to click the link at the bottom to see the list the pair was working from.

TOPIC #2: TOO MANY EASTMAN BOOKS FOR CGC?

Who do you think the comic industry’s lightning rod is? How about the best Spider-Man artist of all-time? Let us know on YouTube and Facebook.
