Since blog posts appear backwards, I figured I'd index the CREATING THE MARVEL UNIVERSE: WHO DESERVES THE CREDIT feature here.
Part One - I introduce the topic and the players involved (Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko). I talk about the public perception of the creation and the conception of Marvel products (and therefore, the universe) in the 1960s.
Part Two - I discuss the writing aspects of the Marvel Bullpen, the accepted and well-documented Marvel Method, and discuss who I think should get credit for writing these stories.
Part Three - I discuss the unification of the various Marvel products of the Silver Age, how they interconnected, and who deserves the credit for unifying the Marvel Universe in such a tight way that no comic company has ever been able to do before or since.
Enjoy reading, and feel free to discuss and comment!
