Welcome to the Marvel Age Master Class Podcast! Each month, former Marvel staffer Ben Morse joins with a member of PTBN Comics’ very own Sarcastic Four (Nick Duke, Tim Capel, Russell Sellers or Todd Weber) to take a closer look at the year previously highlighted in that same month’s Marvel Age Podcast! Ben brings his wealth of behind-the-scenes knowledge to catch things the S4 missed and brings his unique perspective to talk about the stories and creators of the selected year.
This very special premiere episode takes a highly-concentrated look at Marvel’s output from November 1961 until the end of 1962. Ben and guest Russell Sellers talk about Marvel Comics’ origins as a company, they discuss the extremely crucial contributions of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, and our team chronologically looks at the first comic book appearances of the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man and Ant-Man. Face front, true believers, and EXCELSIOR!
