Welcome to the Marvel Age! Each month PTBN Comics’ very own Sarcastic Four (Nick Duke, Tim Capel, Russell Sellers and Todd Weber) take an in-depth year-by-year look at Marvel Comics’ publishing history, focusing on 10 significant issues from that year. The team looks at important character debuts, discusses significant comic creators, and places social and historical context of the era onto the books-all culminating in a holistic view at the Marvel Age of Comics.
This fab fourth episode takes a concentrated look at roughly half of Marvel’s output throughout the 1965. The Sarcastic Four talk about Marvel Comics’ further expansion and its shared sandbox in the pages of the Fantastic Four and Daredevil featuring slugfests with the Hulk and Namor, the boys once again discuss the contributions of creators Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, as well as Wally Wood, Joe Sinnott and Vinnie Colletta, the S4 go in-depth on the first X-Men/Sentinels epic and our team breaks down the first appearance of the Juggernaut, the Inhumans, the Frightful Four and the long-awaited wedding of Reed Richards and Sue Storm.
