The Marvel Universe Unpacked with Chip Zdarsky

The writer of Daredevil, Spider-Man Life Story and more joins to open a pack of old Marvel trading cards and discuss what we find

Remember those old Marvel Universe trading cards from the early 90s? The ones with the power ratings and the great art? I loved those, as did many of the people who ended up making the comics we love today. Some of those people joined me at this year’s Emerald City Comic Con, as we opened packs of Marvel Universe Series II trading cards – the well-agreed upon peak of those cards – to talk about their memories of these cards, characters and creators who worked on them for a video interview series I call The Marvel Universe Unpacked.
