I got this book via Amazon's Kindle Unlimited. I had no problems reading it on my 1st Gen Kindle Fire. Featured the 1st eight issues from Gold Key, around 1963-64.

great old stories that were a blast from the past.

Volume 1

Hermes Press could have added the letters page though for each edition ( a total of the first eight comics) not enough thought was put into this sadly.
