Abstract:

Graphic Novel. In September 1939 a new voice hit the newsstands and changed the comic book world forever: Marvel Comics #1 had arrived! And this 64-page pulp package wasn't your typical assortment of super-powered, straight-laced, do-gooders--this was something completely new. The amazing android creation of Dr. Phineas Horton, the Human Torch, was neither man nor hero--he was a fiery force of nature that shocked and unsettled mankind. Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner, the half-human/half-Atlantean, ventured from his undersea kingdom into the world of man--not with a mind set on peace, but towards vengeance! These two characters would form the foundation for the style of conflicted hero that defines Marvel to this day. Beautifully restored with an amazing host of bonus material, there's no doubt this volume is an absolute must for every comic reader's library.
