Marvel Age Master Class: 1969 part one with Todd Weber

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 Therapeutic Thirteenth episode  takes a concentrated look some of the finest of Marvel Comics’ output throughout 1969. Ben is joined by “The Manager” Todd Weber from the Sarcastic Four to talk about Thor, Ego the Living Planet, Galactus, The Incredible Hulk, the Leader, the Amazing Spider-Man, the Kingpin and the Original Guardians of the Galaxy. Morse & Weber discuss the work of creators Stan Lee, Jim Steranko, Arnold Drake, John Romita, Roy Thomas, Gene Colan and Herb Trimpe; Ben and Todd talk about diverging paths between Lee and Kirby as well as why the Hulk didn’t catch on in Marvel’s early years.
