This Week in Marvel Celebrates the 81st Birthday of the House of Ideas

Ryan, James, and Lorraine go through every decade of Marvel entertainment!

This Week in Marvel 81st Birthday

It's Marvel's 81st birthday, and This Week in Marvel is making it a podcast party! Ryan "Agent M" Penagos, Lorraine Cink, and James Monroe Inglehart all joined forces for a spectacular celebration of Marvel through the decades, from the very first comic it ever published to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more!

It's such a big episode that it had to be summarized in an acrostic poem:

Mighty Marvel Insider Mania
Artists like Jack Kirby and Joe Simon
Reveal of the Marvel-Fortnite Crossover
Various heroes from Captain America to Runaways
Eighty-One Years of Stories!
Literally so many heroes… X-Men, Hulk, Daredevil, Thor… SO MANY HEROES!

There's even a reading list of Marvel Comics to go along with it! Listen to the full episode below:

Here's that reading list we promised you:
