You should check out reprints of the old Stan/Jack and Stan/Ditko stuff for him. He's exactly the right age. There are cheap b&w collections called "Essentials" or nicer (more expensive) Marvel Masterworks. Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Thor, and Doctor Strange are the cream of the crop, though the early stories (for the first year or so) of both Thor and Doctor Strange are pretty rough.

Yeah i think it will work well. You can both find inspiration as "treasure" or proactively seek adventure to research it.

Here's some design work I did on character creation for a more focused, Marvel Knights-style game. Intended for my upcoming G+ game, but pretty easily hackable.
For this post to make sense, I highly suggest you go back and reread my article on campaign frames for Marvel games, found here, and of course my first post on Marvel '78 from yesterday. Go ahead, I'll wait. Back? Okay, let's...

Fantasy Games Part 1: Marvel '78
Although I've been taking a bit of a break to recharge my batteries, Krül remains the game that I'm dedicated to running. Despite that, I suffer from gamer ADD like anyone else and like to fantasize about other games that I'd like to run. In an attempt to ...

Some yakking about the transition from Marvel '78 to '84 and the shift in tone that represents.
You may have noticed that all of the content from the previous blog references Marvel '78, yet this blog is called Marvel '84. What happened? Blame Mark Gruenwald and Tom DeFalco. As I've been tooling around with this pr...

Marvel '78: Mixtape '78
One thing that I love about New York in the late '70s and early '80s is the incredible diversity of music that emerges during this period. NY Punk, No Wave, Post-Disco, Latin Freestyle, Salsa, Electro, Rap, Garage and Dance-Punk all emerge from a fusion of ...

I always like his Kregen covers, though Richard Hescox did my favorite.
