September 18, 2017 - Hello, true believers! This week, we meet a national treasure who serves as a bridge from the Golden Age of comic books to today's blockbuster, multi-film CGI universes. It's the origin story of the man who -- along with talented co-creators like artists Jack Kirby and Joe Simon -- created such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man. Filling in speech balloons is Bob Batchelor who brings us Stan Lee: The Man behind Marvel. Bob is a cultural historian who has written or edited more than two dozen books on popular culture and American literature, including books about John Updike, The Great Gatsby, and Mad Men. He lives in Oxford, Ohio, and teaches at Miami University. Find him at BobBatchelor.com or on Twitter @Cult Pop Culture.
