Welcome to the Marvel Age Master Class Podcast! Each month, former Marvel Editorial Director of Digital Media 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 extemporaneous eighth episode takes a concentrated look at more of the finest of Marvel’s output throughout 1966. Ben and guest Russell Sellers talk about big changes and arrivals on Marvel Comics’ Avengers, Thor, Strange Tales, Tales to Astonish, Daredevil and Tales of Suspense. Morse & Sellers discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, John Romita and Marvel newcomers Dennis O’Neil and Gene Colan. Ben and Russell look at the arrivals of Captain America in the pages of Tales of Suspense as well as the Hulk’s advent in the pages of Tales to Astonish and discuss characters such as Ego, The Living Planet, The Dread Dormammu, Clea, The Swordsman and Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD.
