We’ve been gone for a while, since we wrapped up the weekly comic book club at the end of last year. But we have not been idle, and we’re are now ready to announce a new ongoing series.
We’re going to be reading and discussing the origin and evolution of Marvel Comics—starting from the release of Fantastic Four #1 in 1961. We plan to hit every issue that Marvel released from ’61 through the end of ’69. Along the way we’re going to talk about the growth of Marvel as a company and some of the real history that was happening at the time these comics were being released.
The series will be released bi-weekly, and the first episode will be dropping in exactly 1 week, on October 1st. On that episode we’re going to cover the pre-history of Marvel, starting in 1934 and ending immediately prior to FF #1’s release.
The title of this series is “The House of Jack and Stan” and we hope you’ll enjoy it.
