COVER BY: ALEX SCHOMBURG

Marvel presents more Golden Age goodness, reprinting HUMAN TORCH, #5b-8, from 1941-42. (Yes, folks, odd numbering was not solely the province of modern comic books; the Torch’s solo book had two #5s) This hardcover collection remasters and restores these early adventures featuring two titanic and epic-length battles between the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner. First, amidst a raging World War, Sub-Mariner declares all-out war on the surface world attacking Hitler, Stalin & Mussolini before he sets his sights on New York City. Only the Human Torch, Toro, Kazar, the Patriot and the Angel stand in his way of total world conquest. Then the most fantastic plot in the history of modern warfare plunges the Human Torch and Sub-Mariner into an epic struggle against each other when the villainous Python hypnotizes Torch into aiding Hitler’s cause. Plus, Torch and Toro face off against the Secret Arsenal, the Legion of Despair and Agent X. Also featuring “Tubby & Tack,” “Swoopy the Fearless,” stories by pulp legend Mickey Spillane and Basil Wolverton’s “Peculiar People.”

MARVEL MASTERWORKS: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL. 5 HC (and VARIANT, 2ND EDITION, 2ND VARIANT)
Back-to-press and fully restored by popular demand!
You just hit the jackpot, tiger; one of Marvel’s most amazing Masterworks is back in print! It’s a truly epic run from the annals of the world’s most amazing super hero, the Amazing Spider-Man, with Stan Lee and John Romita bringing story after story of unmatched drama and adventure!
It begins with the first appearance of the bulldozer on four legs, the Rhino, and if he can’t turn Spidey into an endangered species, then perhaps an out-of-control, outer-space powered Col. John Jameson might be able to do the trick. The action keeps pumping with Spidey’s first meeting with the Avengers (hint, it doesn’t go well), the Shocker, the return of the Lizard, Kraven the Hunter, and the debut of an all-new Vulture and the Kingpin! But the true story is in the tale of young Peter Parker finding his way in the world. He’ll reach new heights as he gets his own pad with pal Harry Osborn, courts Gwen Stacy, and beholds one of comics’ most unforgettable entrances, Miss Mary Jane Watson, for the very first time. Of course, for poor Spidey there’s just as many pitfalls as perigees, and you’ll be rattled to your core when J. Jonah Jameson finally editorializes Spidey out of existence! Wrapped up inside quite possibly the greatest Spider-Man image ever, do we even need to say it? Reserve your copy now, True Believer! Collecting THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #41-50 & ANNUAL #3.
