The An Issue by Issue Field Guide to a Pop Culture Phenomenon wiki last edited by pikahyper on 04/13/13 03:47AM View full history

TwoMorrows Publishing presents Marvel Comics in the 1970s, the sequel to Pierre Comtois' heralded first volume on the 1960s!

This full decade of pop-culture history saw Stan Lee's role as writer diminish as he ascended to Publisher, the departure of Jack Kirby to DC (and his later return to Marvel), the rise of Roy Thomas as editor (and eventual Editor In Chief), and the introduction of a new wave of writers and artists who would expand the boundaries of comics beyond super-heroes.

Comics such as the Spider-Man 'drug' issues, Conan the Barbarian, Tomb of Dracula, Master of Kung Fu, Howard the Duck, the new X-Men, and more are covered in detail, along with the creators who wrote and drew them.

Check out Marvel Comics in the 1970s and find out why Marvel was once hailed as The House of Ideas!
