Power Records Super Hero Audio Dramas
DC and Marvel Comics stories

In the early 1970s, a company called Power Records released a series of LPs and 45s with licensed superhero characters, including ones from Marvel. The popularity of Spider-Man in the 1960s lead to his banner status in the “Heroes” collection of records, even amongst other Marvel characters Power licensed, like Captain America and the Hulk. These would be audio dramas with sound effects and multiple actors telling a short story. The early Power Records releases came with comic books meant to be read while you listen, their covers boasting “The action comes alive as you read!!”

For some odd reason, probably having to do with relicensing all the old material, the Power Records presses haven’t seen a modern re-release. However, the culture of the internet has preserved a lot of the Power Records content, including the records and comics featuring Spider-Man.
