Marvel Team-Up Back Issue Spotlight On CBP Podcast

Hey gang,

On today’s Comic Book Page Podcast is a Marvel Team-Up Back Issue Spotlight on issues #80-85 hosted by CBP’s John Mayo and featuring a guest appearance by me!

Marvel Team-Up was one of my favorite comic series as a kid and one the first comics I remember reading growing up in the early/mid 70’s back in Utah.

That first comic was Marvel Team-Up #4- featuring Spidey and the X-Men teaming up against Morbius- The Living Vampire!

The first comic I remember buying after we moved back to Memphis was Amazing Spiderman #171 by Len Wein– the second part of a two part story started in Nova #14 by Marv Wolfman.

Batman and Superman got me into superheroes, but Len Wein and Spiderman got me into comics when I discovered my first spinner rack in a 7-11.

In this episode John and I talk about not only Spidey and MTU, but differences between comics then and now- besides just the cover prices!

Be sure to check out John and Bob’s other episodes like their Weekly Comics Spotlight episodes where they review one comic from Marvel, one from DC, and one indie book.

Hope you enjoy the podcast!
