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 second episode takes a focused look at Marvel’s output throughout 1963. Ben and guest Tim Capel talk about Marvel Comics’ growing pains as they expanded their comic universe, Morse & Capel discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and Don Heck, and Ben and Tim look at the further development of the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor and Spider-Man while also investigating and dissecting the debuts of Iron Man, Dr. Strange, the Avengers debut and the first-ever X-Men comic.
Check out Ben’s thoughts on 1961-1962 Marvel here.
