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 Fierce Fifteenth episode takes a concentrated look at about half of the finest of Marvel Comics’ output throughout 1970. Ben is joined by DC Post-Crisis Management host Russell Sellers (also from the Sarcastic Four) to talk about the Fantastic Four, the Avengers with Captain Mar-Vell, the Fantastic Four, Thor, Spider-Man and the Uncanny X-Men; Morse & Sellers discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, John Romita, Sal Buscema, Roy Thomas, and Neal Adams; Ben and Russell talk about character returns from the Black Widow, the Kingpin and Nick Fury as well as debuts from the Schemer, the Zodiac, and the Maggia.
