In August 1939 a new voice hit the newsstands and changed the comic-book
world forever: MARVEL COMICS #1, with its blazing Human Torch cover,
had arrived! And this 64-page pulp package wasn't your typical
assortment of super-powered, straight-laced, do-gooders-this was
something completely new. The amazing android creation of Dr. Phineas
Horton, the Human Torch was neither man nor hero-he was a blazing force
of nature that shocked and unsettled mankind. Prince Namor, the
Sub-Mariner, the half-human/half-Atlantean, ventures from his undersea
kingdom into the world of man-not with a mind set on peace, but towards
vengeance! These two characters would form the foundation for the style
of conflicted hero that defi nes Marvel to this day, and you'll see them
evolve across twelve full issues from their raw forms into the battling
fire and water mega-hits of the Golden Age! They're flanked by an
eclectic set born out of the fast-paced energy and imagination of the
Golden Age including the heroic Angel; the wild and incomparable robot
invention, Electro; the hard-edged detective, the Ferret; Terry Vance,
the boy adventurer; the Western Masked Raider; and the ongoing jungle
adventures of Ka-Zar, the Great. Featuring an extensive essay on
Marvel's pulp magazine pre-history, publisher Martin Goodman and the
birth of Marvel Comics by noted historian Will Murray, and topped off
with special bonus features including original artwork and items never
seen since 1939, this collection forms the cornerstone of Marvel history
essential for every comic book fan, collector and historian!
