Carl Burgos comic
Marvel presents more Golden Age goodness, reprinting the first four issues of HUMAN TORCH, #2-5a, from 1940-41. (Yes, folks, odd numbering was not solely the province of modern comic books; the Torch’s solo book started with issue #2 and had two #5s.) This hardcover collection remasters and restores these early adventures, including the introduction and origin of Toro, the Flaming Torch Kid. See the Torch and Toro fight side-by-side with the Sub-Mariner, as he once again crashes into New York City! Also featuring the adventures of Microman, Mantor the Magician, the Fiery Mask and the Patriot.
The original Human Torch, Toro, the Sub-Mariner, the Angel and the Ferret team up to prevent Nazi saboteurs and one of the Torch’s earliest foes from creating the ultimate weapon of mass destruction in this all-new 22 page story. Plus another 10 page classic vintage tale from Marvel’s Golden Age!
