From a cave in Vietnam, millionaire industrialist Tony Stark saves his own life by creating an amazing suit of armor! The Fantastic Four wins the Space Race! The Incredible Hulk loses his own title but makes a bigger splash elsewhere! Nurse Jane Foster keeps pining for Thor, while Thor secretly pines right back! Spider-Man tries to join the FF! Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos take the stage during World War II! Beautiful teenage heiress, Jan Van Dyne falls in love with Hank Pym and gets the gift of wings as he tries to not be creepy! Well, creepier! It's the start of the first full year of Marvel Comics and it's filled with paranoia, Red Scares, alien invasions, and superheroes as monstrous as the supervillains they fight!
Comics Bulletin Veteran Paul Brian McCoy returns to the Sensational Sixties to read and react to the creation of the Marvel Comics Superhero Universe, month by month, issue by issue! Sometimes irreverent, sometimes way-too-serious, he looks on in wonder at one of the greatest feats of world-building in Pop Culture, sharing insights and laughs along with heaps of praise and sprinkles of embarrassment (yes, Ant-Man, I'm looking at you).
