The History of Marvel Comics

Bonus Phase. Episode 1.

Pat and Mike take a break from the MCU to bring you the first of many bonus episodes. First up: The History of Marvel Comics.

They go back in time when Martin Goodman launched Timely Comics, as they dive into the history of Marvel Comics. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby weren't too far behind as they came to Timely Comics and created Captain America. We'll also learn about a little unknown member of Marvel Comics...Stan Lee.

They go through the beginning of it all in the late 1930s/early 1940s to the 1950s when Timely Comics were temporarily cancelled and ultimately the 1960s when Marvel officially is born. But don't despair...this isn't a deep dive. That would probably take four hours and let's be honest, no one wants to hear Pat and Mike talking for four hours.

About the Podcast

Yet Another MCU Podcast
A deep dive into the influences and connections of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Pat Whalen is a lifelong comic book geek.
Mike Field is a filmmaker and storyteller.

So naturally, a bulk of their conversations surround the world of the Marvel movies. Some consider the MCU one of the greatest achievements in modern-day filmmaking and others just think they’re comic book movies.

Each episode they'’ll tackle one film and discuss the differences between the comic book and what’s on-screen. They’ll explore the growth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its inception to present day and beyond. And have a little fun along the way. You may not have asked for it, you certainly don’t need it, but you’ll be happy they’re here…we think. This is Yet Another MCU Podcast.

I’m a storyteller.

My very first story was about a detective trying to solve the murder of his best friend. It was also my high school girlfriend’s homework assignment. She got an “A” and then dumped me. I knew even then writers get no respect, but I didn’t care. I fell in love with writing.

In the beginning of every story, there’s nothing. It’s scary. It’s intimidating. It causes the best of us to turn tail and run. Over the years, I’ve learned there’s no greater professional satisfaction than starting that story and seeing it to completion.

I've been creating content for over twenty years, handling all phases of production and including promotion and marketing. I've made web series, short films, feature films, commercials and industrials. I’m a fan of organization, collaboration and other people’s creativity. No one person has all the answers.

And now, I'm a podcast producer and host for Forgotten Cinema, Yet Another MCU Podcast and much more coming from Forgotten Entertainment.
