Marvel is at it again this week with another great Golden Age Marvel Masterworks volume. The Marvel Masterworks Golden Age Marvel Comics, volume 4 reprints all stories from Marvel Mystery Comics 13-16 (November 1940 – Febraury 1941). In addition to the great Human Torch and Sub-Mariner stories by Burgos and Everett, you will also find the adventures of The Vision (Jack Kirby), The Angel (Paul Gustavson) and others. Of course, the covers by Alex Schomburg are worth the price of admission. Kirby’s “The Vision” story from Marvel Mystery Comics #16 is very cool (gotta love dinosaurs!) In addition to the stories, you will find the covers (including the inside front covers) the text pieces and some of the ads for other Timley comics.
This is a great volume for the Golden Age Marvel collector or fan as it contains many stories that have never before been reprinted. This volume retails for $59.99 (U.S.) but can be found at a discount at many online retailers. Thanks again to Marvel for continuing with their Golden Age reprints. This volume is especially welcomed as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of Marvel Comics, but that’s the topic for another post!
