Marvel Age Podcast Featuring the Sarcastic Four: 1969 Part Two

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 stories 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 look at the Marvel Age of Comics.

This thirsty THIRTEENTH episode takes a concentrated look at roughly half of the best of Marvel’s output throughout 1969. The Sarcastic Four talk in depth about Marvel Comics’ X-Men and its dynamic new artist (plus the return of Magneto and the debut of Sauron), Captain America's new/old partner Rick "Bucky" Jones and his new/new partner the Falcon in their battles against Madame Hydra and the returning Red Skull, the debut of the Rick Jones/Captain Marvel pairing plus the return of Ultron and the debut of the Squadron Sinister in Avengers; the boys discuss the contributions of creators Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Jim Steranko, Gene Colan, John Buscema, John Romita as well as the debuting Neal Adams, Sal Buscema, Gil (that's gotta be) Kane and Barry (not yet Windsor) Smith.
