Life of Reilly

Back in the 1990's, Marvel Comics released some really quite bad Spider-Man comics. The behind-the-scenes story behind the increasingly convoluted and confused 'Clone Saga' storyline is a fascinating examination of the opposing company and creative forces responsible for the whole mess.

The 35 part essay has been available online for some time, but the authors now have plans to expand and release the project as a book.

"The Clone Saga also gave us The Life of Reilly, though, a unique piece of longform comics journalism that summarizes and explains not only the complex, at times non-sensical plotlines, but more importantly, it includes first-hand reportage of how this story went so horribly awry from the editors, writers and others involved in its creation."
