Wherein the narrator, after recounting the finer points of his favorite early Superman comic, talks with author Douglas Wolk about his new book, ALL OF THE MARVELS. Wolk read all 27,000 issues of Marvel's expanded comic book universe and writes, in his story, about the beauty of confusion, the maturation of the brand, and whether Stan Lee did in fact hate children (this is the host's contention, not necessarily Wolk's).
