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 stupendous seventh episode takes a concentrated look at some of the finest of Marvel’s output throughout 1966. Ben and guest Russell Sellers talk about big changes and arrivals on Marvel Comics’ flagship titles Amazing Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. Morse & Sellers discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, and the debut of “Jazzy” John Romita and discuss why Steve Ditko left Marvel in 1966. Ben and Russell look at the arrivals of the Silver Surfer and Galactus as well as Black Panther’s debut in the pages of the Fantastic Four. The boys also talk in-depth about the Green Goblin’s ascent to the top of the Spider-Man Rogues Gallery.
