    If you loved the monster comics from Marvel as a kid then here is the collection for ya. You can't beat Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko art and Stan Lee writing for classic 1960s over-the-top monster stories.

    Estas historietas tienen su aquel. Los monstruos de Kirby, las ideas que después darían lugar a iconos del universo Marvel (un primer Doctor Extraño, mutantes, los panteones de dioses de la antigüedad viniendo a nuestro mundo...) y, sobre todo, varias de las ilustradas por Ditko, excelente narrador entregado a hacer su versión de los tebeos de la EC para los tiempos del Comic Code.

Entre ellas hay algunas, pocas, muy buenas, plagadas de seres normales enfrentados a los misterios de un universo donde todo es posible. Mi distancia frente a ellas emerge de las limitaciones de las que parte el guión. Las concesiones para ajustarse a un patrón tan constreñido como la normativa del Code les quitan la gracia y, dentro de su ingenuidad, me cuesta encontrarles su encanto. Si a esto le sumas que Lee ¿termina? muchas de ellas de aquella manera, la sensación que me deja es el de haber leído un cómic más antiguo que clásico.

    It’s basically a bunch of science fiction short stories in the vein of the Twilight Zone. I’ve never really read much of Steve Ditko’s art and after reading this, I get why he was so well regarded. His facial expressions are the best.

    Ditko es la estrella en estos 15 números reunidos. Está lleno de moustruos, ciencia ficción y fantasía. Todo lo que era Marvel antes de ser lo que conocemos ahora. ¿Bueno o Malo? Ni una ni otra: Historia.

    Marvelous Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby art makes this a real treat for the eyes, the stories are pretty much what you would expect from this period, but if your an old codger like me you might just remember them from the first time round ! Classic stuff, well worth a look

    Mira que los argumentos son de traca y tiran de giros de guión muchas veces previsibles, y que Kirby y Ditko no lo dan todo... pero lo he disfrutado como cuando era un niño.

    This is a beautifully produced hardcover. Just as nice as Jack Kirby's The Demon one that I read about the same time. It's got some classic Jack Kirby monster comics, and it's got the first appearance of Spider-Man. And it's all pretty good, really. But I was going back through these looking for Kirby monster comics, and while this one delivered a better package than the Atlas Era Tales to Astonish that I recently finished up, the Kirby stories petered out about halfway through, and the stories This is a beautifully produced hardcover.

But I was going back through these looking for Kirby monster comics, and while this one delivered a better package than the Atlas Era Tales to Astonish that I recently finished up, the Kirby stories petered out about halfway through, and the stories that were left didn't really hold my interest. Not that the art (almost all of it by Steve Ditko) was bad, just that the stories were incredibly short (two to four pages) and not really what I was looking for. Still, as far as presentation goes, you couldn't ask for much better.

    I love the work Steve Ditko did in late 50s and early 60s for Marvel's anthology comics: Amazing Fantasy, Journey into Mystery, Strange Tales, Tales of Suspense, Tales to Astonish and some of their lesser known titles. This volume collects all 15 issues of the comic book mostly known as Amazing Fantasy (although only the last issue was actually called that). Amazing Fantasy started out as Amazing Adventures (issues 1-6) and was just like Marvel's other anthology titles: the stories drawn by vario I love the work Steve Ditko did in late 50s and early 60s for Marvel's anthology comics: Amazing Fantasy, Journey into Mystery, Strange Tales, Tales of Suspense, Tales to Astonish and some of their lesser known titles. This volume collects all 15 issues of the comic book mostly known as Amazing Fantasy (although only the last issue was actually called that). Amazing Fantasy started out as Amazing Adventures (issues 1-6) and was just like Marvel's other anthology titles: the stories drawn by various artists (including Ditko and Jack Kirby). But with issue 7, the title became Amazing Adult Fantasy with all the stories illustrated by Ditko. I enjoyed the Marvel Masterworks reprints of the early non-superhero stories from Tales to Astonish and Tales of Suspense, and I'm looking forward to the later volumes of Journey into Mystery and Strange Tales (where I hope to get a bit more Ditko). But for sheer volume of Ditko this volume can't be beat. Each Masterworks volume has 9 to 11 issues usually with no more than 9 to 11 stories drawn by Ditko. But this volume contains nine issues of nothing but Ditko plus his stories in first six issues. The only thing better would be a hardback series that collected all of his non-superhero Marvel work from that period.

    Beautifully reproduced collection of sci-fi/horror omnibus sleaze in the EC comics tradition which was all the rage way back in the Fifties, all written Marvel-lously by Swingin' Stan Lee. You'll see one gnarly, tweakered looking monster after another, each one looking more deformed and fucked than the one before it (like fat plumbers), all with names like Manoo, Torr, Sserpo, Krogg, and of course Monsteroso! Jack Kirby is totally in his element here, not to be out-done by the mind bending moral Beautifully reproduced collection of sci-fi/horror omnibus sleaze in the EC comics tradition which was all the rage way back in the Fifties, all written Marvel-lously by Swingin' Stan Lee.

Jack Kirby is totally in his element here, not to be out-done by the mind bending morality plays illustrated by Steve Ditko. The "Teddy Bear" story by him is unforgettable and bizarrely sweet. The street price is $75 but e-tailers sell it for 50% off, check it out! Love the comic book's tagline: "The Magazine That Respects Your Intelligence!"

    What is interesting about this collection is how disappointed you are when the fifteenth (and final) issue introduces Spider-Man. Issues 7-14 (when the book was titled Amazing Adult Fantasy) suggest an intriguing place comics might have gone had their creators not been interested in making a living. Admittedly, one can sense Lee's well of inspiration running dry toward the end of that run and the transition to superheroic uniformity seems damnably inevitable, hindsight or no.

    The book best known for spawning Spider-Man. this ios a collection of mostly monster stories, and none of them are all that great. Ditkos art waffles between rushed and crappy to brilliant, and Lee never does seem comfortable in the writing dept. You'd be much better off reading the EC line of Weird Science/Weird Fantasy.

    Raccoglie l'intera serie mensile coi suoi cambiamenti, di nome e struttura. Certo sono storielle ingenue, che dopo un poco si ripetono. C'è un certo moralismo di fondo, specie in quelle di Steve Ditko. Però è una gran lettura, piena di fantasia e di idee. Raccoglie l'intera serie mensile coi suoi cambiamenti, di nome e struttura.
