Captain America, the Sub-Mariner, and the Human Torch take the fight to the Axis powers in Europe, with help from Bucky, Toro, Union Jack, and the Liberty Legion. They face insidious Nazi threats such as Master Man, Brain Drain, the Red Skull, Baron Blood, and even a trio of ancient Germanic gods! Thomas is clearly in his element as he pulls out all the stops. His encyclopedic knowledge of classic comics, mixed with superb plotting, and knowing nods to the stories and culture of the time, makes this series a complete blast. As for artist Frank Robbins: while his work is often labeled "unrealistic", "rushed", or just plain "sloppy", it looks absolutely beautiful on this title. His style is more that of a comic STRIP artist, comparable to the work of Milton Caniff. Robbins' pencils are stylish and dynamic, show an excellent command of line and shadow, and his skill at depicting military hardware is on brilliant display in this book. In fact, this style would have fit right in at EC Comics on titles like Frontline Combat or Two-Fisted Tales.
I am so happy that Marvel decided to give the Invaders the Classic treatment, and I am looking forward to further volumes. Don't make me wait!
Make Mine Marvel!!!
I have all these after years of searching but I jumped at the chance to get them in TPB.
Maybe one day we can get a TPB of the All Winners comics(All-Winners Squad) and other classic 1940's books! here is hoping !
But Roy Thomas had the perfect solution for Marvel: If you don't have a great Golden Age Team history make one up.
So, the Invaders were born. This book collects Giant Invaders #1, Invaders 1-9, and Marvel Premiere 29 and 30.
The books with Giant Invaders #1 and sees Marvel's golden age big three (Captain America, Human Torch, and Sub-mariner) and their kid sidekick (Toro and Bucky) joining forces in a 32 page adventure against the Nazi super soldier replica Masterman. They're urged to join forces on a permanent basis by none other than British Prime Minister Winston Churchill with a goal of invading Hitler's Fortress Europa.
Issues 1 and 2 of the regular Invaders series has them battling Brain Drain and encountering some apparent Norse gods who aren't from Asgard. A mostly okay story.
Issues 3 and 4 of the Invaders have the Invaders up against U-man. Other than the obligatory battle of Namor v. the rest of the Invaders due to the latter's insistence on taking down U-man on his own since U-man had attack at the sea, the serial is more good but not outstanding work.
The middle section of the book is what earns it my 5 star rating including Marvel Premiere #29 and 30 and Invaders #5 and #6. In Invaders #5, all the Invaders other than Bucky are kidnapped and brainwashed by the Red Skull into attacking America's war production.Read more ›
