Episode 62 - X-Men 06

September 6, 2017

We continue our discussion of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's original X-Men comics with issue #6, guest staring Namor the Sub-Mariner!  This issue features some of Kirby's best art seen in the series thus far, but it is in service to a story that feels like filler material.  In this episode, we discuss the purpose of character archetypes and how they are represented in these old stories, as well as the different storytelling styles of Silver Age comics compared to modern comics.
