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.
Ben’s fantastic fourth episode takes a concentrated look at the rest of Marvel’s output throughout 1964. Ben and guest Todd Weber talk about Marvel Comics’ many crossovers as characters within their shared universe interacted more than ever. Morse & Weber discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, as well as Steve Ditko. Ben and Todd look at the further development of Dr. Strange and Spider-Man’s greatest threats to date-The Sinister Six and the Green Goblin. They also talk in depth about the origin of Marvel’s most menacing villain of all, Dr. Doom, and why Marvel’s annuals were revolutionary.
