Danny Fingeroth, writer on a number of Spider-Man titles and other Marvel series, and long-time Spider-Man group editor in the 1980s and1990s, sat down with Dan Gvozden and I at the Connecticut ComiCONN event in Trumbull, CT, last weekend. The interview has just been released as an episode of the Superior Spider-Talk and our Amazing Friends podcast.

Also check for additional podcast interviews from our day at ComiCONN, including our interviews with J.M. DeMatteis, Mark Bagley and Tom DeFalco, which went live last week.
Some highlights from our conversation with Fingeroth include:
- Taking over as Spider-Man group editor and ushering the transition from the Roger Stern/John Romita Jr.-era to the Tom DeFalco/Ron Frenz-era
- His thought process in how he wrote Doctor Octopus during his stint on Web of Spider-Man
- Overseeing a growing number of Spider-Man titles (and marketing gimmicks) during the “Chromium Era” of Marvel comics
- Writing the Deadly Foes/Sinister Foes of Spider-Man series and whether or not he’s read the current Superior Foes of Spider-man comic.
