The Marvel Universe Unpacked with Ryan Browne

The artist of Curse Words joined me to open some old Marvel cards and discuss the absurdity within his pack

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 artist of Curse Words and the cartoonist behind God Hates Astronauts, Ryan Browne. Brown joined me to discuss Dr. Mario’s questionable medical credentials, Rage’s houseguest methods, Tombstone’s propaganda, The Punisher’s jet ski, and a whole lot more. It’s a good one, and definitely the most ridiculous one from the first run of these interviews.
