The Marvel Golden Age Omnibus is an extraordinary book. It collects the first 12 issues of Marvel Comics, plus a great introduction to the volume giving you gads of information about Martin Goodman and the founding of Marvel Comics. Plus this basically smashes together, three Marvel Masterworks productions, you also get three introductions by the great comic writer, editor, and historian Roy Thomas. Plus you get reproductions of the covers of Marvel's pulp predecessors and some rare pictures.

Max Finkelstein created Jim Hamond, the Human Torch, for Marvel Comics in 1939, using the pen-name Carl Burgos. He also created the Thunderer for Daring Mystery Comics. Both series were published by Timely Comics, the forerunner of Marvel. He was drafted in 1942 and did mostly commercial art in subsequent years, occasionally drawing science fiction stories for Marvel, by that time known as Atlas. ...more
