The Dig Deep Episode 1: Amazing Spider-Man #252

The interns have a show!... kinda!

Matt "Bodega" Kessler and Steve "Lemon" Ramirez present The Dig Deep, the show where we take a look at the comic, games, movies and tech that inspired the editors of the Whiskey Media sites and ask the important question; Do those products stand the test of time?

In Episode 1, Matt and Steve take a look at the Comic Book that got Comic Vine Editor In Chief Tony Guerrero into comics in the first place: The Amazing Spider-Man #252. Can this influential comic still hold up for a pair of modern whippersnappers? Tune in as the interns try and fine out!

Or don't tune in! Or go make a sandwich! Whatever you want! We're easy!

I'll watch.  But only because I have a sandwich already.
Edit: I liked it!  Lemon was a bit quiet, but it's interesting to see how weirded out you guys were by an older Peter Parker.  He gets de-aged so often it's hard to believe he ever had a beard, though.

This was pretty good for a first attempt! Steve was a little clammy and Matt rambled a little bit, but I think you guys both did a good job considering. Did the interns control the camera and video aspects too?

I think Matt should do QVC or infomercials or something.

Turtlenecks cutoff the blood circulation to the brain, hence, you see the light as your brain slowly dies from lack of oxygen.

OH GOD THE INTERNS ARE TAKING OVER

Could do with some of those jolly jingles out of the WM OST. The music that usually plays during the Happy Hour intermissions.

Comic books, huh? At least the video had GUNS.

Tell me when the interns start covering video games in this feature. I'll go back to writing my latest blog.

How long until you talk about Path Of Neo?

It was alright. Not exactly what I expected out of the intern project, I mean, really that could just be a feature on Comic Vine or Giant Bomb. I thought there'd be something unique that you guys would be doing, I remember posting that I hoped you'd interview various Whiskey people. If Tony had been there to actually tell you why this comic was important to him, I think it'd have been better, in a sort of "who IS Tony Guerrero?" thing.

It was still nice though, just putting some thoughts out there =)

Much better idea.

I was going to bash this some more, but I probably shouldn't hold interns to the same standards as the Whiskey people so... good first attempt. I'll be interested to see where it goes in the future.

They could have interviewed Cool Baby. He was right behind them.

I like it. I want to see the interns do more videos that are unique, and really reflect their personalities. and mix it up, it doesn't have to be locked into games, movies and comics.

I love that you guys are looking off screen at your guys opening speech.

Outstanding.

This was a day late. It was only posted yesterday, but Ethan said it was going to be up on Wednesday. Why haven't you been fired for missing deadlines?

I can understand why they didn't want to set such a high boundary so soon; then the crowds would expect something as super-big-epic like that every week! Plus he's a pretty intimidating baby too, so the interns might need to take... baby steps (SNARF)... to working up the courage for such an interview.

I will find a way to rock the white turtleneck.

Mark my words.

This is really good, but mabey Kessler needs to stop trying to be Ryan and try and be himself

Posted by 1p

Good job on that, guys. Looking forward for more. Would have been cool to have Tony on to contrast.

(The digital zoom to fake multiple camera angles is a total pet peeve of mine. I don't know why, it really pisses me off.)

Posted by ShadowFire01

Good effort, guys, but the cuts to pages of the comic felt way too frequent and rushed. Still, I'll be looking forward to more episodes.

Posted by Osaladin

Hmm, I'm not interested in comic books, but I really enjoyed the ending, nice job.

Posted by YoThatLimp

There was not enough Kessler Kamel Toe TBH

Posted by Brendan

I would like a video where Matt and Steve go into specific detail what the problems were in going from Tropico to Tropico 2.

I'm not particularly interested in comic books but I'm interested to see more tech and game related episodes!

Posted by MideonNViscera

That was my favorite era of Spider-Man.

A comicy ass comic book with some foreboding in the shape of the symbiote of the direction comics would go.
