Vids I Dig 039: Comic Tropes: Atlas/Seaboard: The Company That Failed to Spite Marvel

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: Atlas/Seaboard is a fascinating short-lived publisher from the mid 1970s that tried to compete with DC and Marvel. They offered the best page rates and other incentives to attract some top talent like Steve Ditko, Neal Adams, Russ Heath and more. But the men running the show, Martin Goodman and his son Chip, were just trying to beat Marvel Comics overnight.

This episode explains the history of Atlas/Seaboard and reviews one of their comics, Tiger-Man, to show how troubled the comics they made were.
