  1. Hey, nice podcast you have here. I loved the black and white origin of Star-Lord and have been wondering for some time why it took so long for him to really break out.

    Also I must really applaud Jim Starlin for almost single handedly creating the cosmic Marvel universe. Warlock, Mar-Vell (and his death), Silver Surfer…I loved it all.

    • By setting these stories on the periphery of the Marvel Universe I find it has helped them age when compared to other stories of the era. There are fewer references to disco or Jimmy Carter to ignore (the Magus’ rockin’ Space ‘Fro notwithstanding).
