One Issue in very poor condition I bought cost about 5-10 times this whole book. You get to see how captain America was reintroduced in the sixties he was popular in the forties during WW2. Also why the hulk left he was an original member among other things.
I have to admit I am a bit biased and prefer the comics to the movies.
This along with a few other supposed "masterworks" shall remain a 1-star until the actual masterwork is presented with the table of contents and introduction pages
Please fix kindle!!!
The problems with the Hulk and Ant-Man were offset, though, by the addition of Captain America in issue four, his first Silver Age appearance. Captain America clearly adds greatly to the interest of the stories he appears in. Overall, these comics are representative of early Silver Age Marvel. While not as good as the early issues of Spider-Man and Fantastic Four, I would rank them above the early Thor issues of Journey into Mystery or the early Iron-Man issues of Tales of Suspense. I've also been reading collections of two early DC Silver Age heores: Adam Strange and the Viking Prince. One advantage that Marvel had over DC was the willingness to have longer stories -- 22 to 25 pages -- as opposed to the 8 to 10 pages stories in many contemporaneous DC comics. The longer stories make it possible to provide more depth and plausibility.
The ten issues included here are reprinted in color. The volume is also rather inexpensive. So, if you like 1960's comics, particularly Marvel, you won't be disappointed in this collection.
