The original era of the Original Captain Marvel came to a sad end in 1953... so what DID happen to the Marvel Family? How did they survive the rise of King Kull the Beastman, the baleful influence of the horror genre, and shameless attempts at Cold War/Korean War exploitationism, only to fall victim to a fate far more subtle and insidious, and to vanish into limbo for 20 years? Murd and Chris have some answers in this Spotlight episode covering the comics of the final fling of Fawcett Publications in the Fabulous Fifties (1950-53). (2:50:03)
