After all, it's never wise to bed a wizard's woman. Then, Conan joins with Red Sonja for a multipart adventure.

From the heart of the Silver Age Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers bring you the World War II adventures of Sgt. Nick Fury! These creative titans took the Marvel method and applied it to the combat genre, creating the "war comic for people who hate war comics." Starring Fury, Dum Dum Dugan and the rest of the Howling Commados, the series was an instant hit and would even inspire filmmaker Quentin Taratino's Inglorious Basterds. In this augural Sgt. Fury Epic Collection, our heroes battle more Nazis than you can shake a bayonet at, team-up with Captain America and Bucky, battle the nefarious Barons Strucker and Zemo, and set out to capture Adolf Hitler himself!
COLLECTING: VOL. 1: SGT. FURY (1963) #1-19 

One of the all-time great stories of the Silver Surfer, by the legendary Stan "The Man" Lee and visionary French artist Jean Giraud, aka Moebius - as stunning now as it was 30 years ago! A star falls to earth. Panic grips the planet as mankind prepares for its inevitable end. But the star is a ship, and inside is a god. All he asks is adoration. Overcome with relief, man rushes to obey. There is only one voice of dissent that will not be silenced: the Silver Surfer, who recognizes the "god" as his former master! But why has Galactus encouraged mankind to live down to his darkest nature? The Sentinel of the Spaceways stars in a bewitching tale of man's folly and nobility.
COLLECTING: SILVER SURFER (1988) 1-2

Seven Mickey serials in all -- all newly recolored in the warm colors of the original comic books!
