Our guest this week is Sean Howe, author of the terrific book Marvel Comics: The Untold Story! We’ll talk with him about whether Stan Lee and Jack Kirby get too much or not enough credit, the big personality of Jim Shooter, how he was able to stay objective through the process of writing the book, which publishers he’d like to see covered in new books, Marvel’s unsung heroes, the hidden genius of Gerry Conway, what he thinks of Marvel today, and much more! Plus, we do our first-ever War Rocket Ajax Love/Hate Inventory!
