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 Eloquent Eleventh episode was recorded on the day Stan Lee passed away. After a heartfelt discussion about Stan’s massive legacy and Ben’s personal remembrances, the show takes a concentrated look at some of the finest of Marvel’s output throughout 1968. Ben and guest Nick Duke talk about the Avengers, Thor & the Fantastic Four. Morse & Duke discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, John Buscema and Roy Thomas. Ben and Nick also look at the character debuts of the Vision, Ultron and Annihilus as well as return appearances from Lee’s favorite character the Silver Surfer and Galactus.
