Welcome to the premiere episode of The House of Jack and Stan. On this show, 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 1969. 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.
On this episode, we talk about the concept of the show, discuss some of our favorite Marvel characters, and explore the events that led up to the creation of Marvel Comics, beginning in 1934 and ending in 1961.
Note: We were trying to think of the Editor-in-Chief of DC comics, who is Bob Harras, not Tom DeFalco.
