    One thought on “Marvel Masterworks: The Human Torch, Vol. 1”

    1. I am a fan of the early Fantastic Four books, but this was rough sledding In October of 1962, after the Fantastic Four had been out for just under a year, the Human Torch was given his own solo series in Strange Tales magazine Not a bad idea in theory, but the execution left a lot to be desired I thought these standalone Torch stories were much weaker than the Fantastic Four stories being told at the time For the most part, these are simple one off, beat em up stories where the Torch takes on so [...]

    2. The only reason I really bought this particular Marvel Masterworks was that it was only 5 on , and I had really been wanting to see how they handled the trade paperback version of the series I have to say that they did a pretty good job, and I ll probably start getting some of the TPB volumes if I see them really cheap again This one reprints the first half of the Human Torch s solo series that was originally in Strange Tales It features the first appearances of the Wizard, Paste Pot Pete, the P [...]

    3. This Marvel Masterworks volume reprints the Human Torch s solo adventures originally published in Strange Tales between 1962 and 1964 For some reason his solo adventures never really appealed to me The stories in this volume are all OK although a bit earnest for my taste today and the art is fine, but the stories just don t click And since the stories predate my youthful comic book buying there s no real nostalgia appeal for me.I expect to enjoy the second volume, Marvel Masterworks The Human To [...]

    4. The early Fantastic Four and Hulk stories were largely lacking in super villains as we think of them now Instead, there were aliens, mad scientists, kaiju and spies That rather quickly changed and these Human Torch stories from Strange Tales seem to be where Stan Lee tried to figure out how super villains worked However, the ideas he workshopped in these pages are mostly terrible Asbestos Man, Acrobat, Painter of 1000 Perils, a guy with the actual Pandora s box, Plantman and of course, Paste Pot [...]

    5. While there s nothing here that overtly offended my aesthetic sensibilities whatever those are worth , this will most likely only be of interest to FF completists In other words, if I hadn t checked out these issues via Marvel Unlimited, I d probably have been much disappointed You d think hot headed Johnny Storm would be a interesting protagonist than that nerd Peter Parker But Larry Lieber following Stan Lee s plots rarely slows things down enough for the difference to matter, foregoing teen [...]

    6. The art is above average Kirby and Ayers The writing is nothing special, and follows a similar pattern of improvement after Larry Lieber and Robert Bernstein are replaced by Jerry Siegel and then Stan Lee on scripting Still, I just started reading volume 4 of the Fantastic Four and Lee s writing there is much better than this rather throwaway material by comparison I rank this above volume 1 each of Ant Man Giant Man, Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man, but below just about anything else.

    7. Le storie in solitaria di Johnny Storm le ho conosciute da bambino su I Fantastici 4 Gigante dell editore Corno Me le ricordo come inferiori in qualit a quelle del quartetto, ma quelle del periodo Lee Kirby sono capolavori, queste dove Lee e Kirby appaiono poco, col senno di poi non sono niente male Le dinamiche tra i personaggi sono buone le storie, seppure a volte ingenue, hanno qualcosa di particolare che le fa ricordare con nostalgia.

    8. Fans of the Fantastic Four will love this kitschy collection that details the Human Torch adventures from Strange Tales 101 to 117 plus the story from the second annual Don t take them too seriously though the scenarios aren t very well thought through and the action is simply for fun only.

    9. Not bad, but fairly uncompelling on the whole I found myself in general just wanting to get through these so I could get to Doctor Strange.

    10. Very early Marvel super hero stuff Nice work from Kirby You can see the transformation from the Atlas monster books into the Marvel heroes perfectly.
