Douglas Wolk on 'All the Marvels'

Lisa Gidley
Douglas Wolk, author of 'All the Marvels'

This is a special edition of Marginalia, one with a guest co-host. When I have ready access to someone who knows so much more about a topic than I do, I ask them to read the book with me and join me for the interview with the author.


Today my co-host is Hugo Phan, my colleague in the digital department in the newsroom. I asked Hugo to join me because our guest today is Douglas Wolk, who wrote the book “All the Marvels” for which he read *all* of the Marvel superhero comics... more than 27 thousand of them.

Here's our conversation.


All the Marvels by Douglas Wolk was published by Penguin Press.
