The Marvel Universe Unpacked with Ramon Villalobos

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 the tend – 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.

In this week’s final episode from the series, I’m joined by the artist of the upcoming WildCATs, Ramon Villalobos. I had him on at the end because unlike everyone else, Ramon had zero background with these cards, which made him a fun closer. So Villalobos joins me to discuss the weirdness within, Ron Lim and his guy Gene, the glory of X-Force, why Venom is the best, and a whole lot more.
