Description

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.

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.
