Thanks for checking out our Patreon!

My Marvelous Year is a weekly podcast using a book club format, going year-by-year through Marvel Comics' history. Starting in 1961 with Fantastic Four #1, Zack and Dave use critical analysis, historical and cultural context, narrative breakdowns, and goofs to discuss the most important and fun issues of Marvel Comics. We aim for this to be entertaining and informative to the complete Marvel newcomer as well as the veteran. This is reflected in the hosts, as Zack is something of a beginner to comics, and Dave is the expert (acting as Editor-in-Chief to comicbookherald.com).

Your backing is really appreciated, as it helps us cover costs, upgrade equipment, and create more content for you to enjoy!

Goals
$294 of $500 per month
This is the BIG one. If we hit this goal, we'll start a second Marvel reading book club podcast (exclusive to the $5 Patreon backers) where we cover the Marvel Ultimate Universe. The Ultimate series ran from 2000-2015, and is a separate Marvel Universe with new origins & stories for all the classic superheros, made to be a jumping on point for newcomers to Marvel Comics. We're excited to do a comprehensive deep dive on these alternate takes of classic stories.
