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 look at the Marvel Age of Comics.

This inaugural episode takes a concentrated look at Marvel's output from November 1961 until the end of 1962. The Sarcastic Four talk about Marvel Comics' origins as a company, they discuss the extremely crucial contributions of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, and our team chronologically looks at the first comic book appearances of the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man and Ant-Man.

Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #107: The Longbook Hunters — The Man of Steel

Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. Over the course of their travels through comicdom, they have encountered numerous stories via the wonder of trade paperbacks and graphic novels. Once a month, Nick and Greg will review one of those collections in The Longbook Hunters. In this excursion, the boys celebrate 80 years of Superman by looking at one of the landmark stories in the character's celebrated history: John Byrne's 1986 miniseries "The Man of Steel." It's a story that changed the course of the oldest (and, some might say, greatest) superhero forever! Also: birthing matrices! Naked, hairy flesh! Katherine Hepburn! And more!
