We begin our comics journey with
theTales of Suspense
#39, which introduces
us to Tony Stark—and then Iron Man!
About the Podcast
Do you want to read Marvel comics, but aren’t sure where to start? Do you already love comics and just yearn for someone to obsess over them with? Maybe you wish more discussions about comics focused on issues of race, gender, sexuality, class, and ability? Do you not care about any of the other parts but just really, really love Tony Stark?
If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, you’re in the right place! Join your host Megan, a not-so-disgraced former academic who reads and thinks about things too much for fun, as she bravely sets out to provide summaries and analysis of all 2000+ appearances of Tony Stark—a.k.a. Iron Man. The show will follow the character’s comic journey in order of publication date. It will also be spoiler free, making it easy to follow along whether you’re brand new to comics, or have a basement full of beautifully maintained long boxes. Comics fans new and old, assemble!
