Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.
We’re dropping down for a man-on-the-street view of the early days of the Marvel Universe, courtesy of Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross.
There’s no image gallery this week, you’ll see why.
We have a Patreon which helps us keep going. If you want a bunch of bonus episodes, plus early access to the regular ones, and have a bit of money to spare every month, head over there to check it out.
