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.
This week, I’m joined by the cartoonist behind the upcoming creator-owned series Triage at Dark Horse Comics, Phillip Sevy. Sevy joins me to open some cards, talk about his love of the old Marvel cards, his love of the X-Men, Grim Reaper’s weird power ratings, The Punisher’s van, Fantastic Four versus New Fantastic Four, and a whole lot more.
