The Comic Book Attic #151

Comics of My Youth Part 1 of 100.  In this episode, I talk about the influence of the four "secret story" books: The Fantastic Four: The Secret Story of Marvel's Cosmic Quartet, Spider-Man: The Secret Story of Marvel's World-Famous Wall Crawler, The Incredible Hulk: The Secret Story of Marvel's Gamma-Powered Goliath, and Captain America: The Secret Story of Marvel's Star-Spangled Super Hero.  Then, I talk about three Big Little books: Spider-Man Zaps Mr. Zodiac, The Incredible Hulk Lost in Time, and The Fantastic Four in the House of Horrors. (21:44)

I'm releasing this episode early due to the Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday comic shopping that will consume this week.  Have a great holiday, everyone.
