Bear with me --- I am going to trash this book, then praise it, then trash it again. Some background: the first half of this collection consists of the original Deathlok stories published in Marvel's Astonishing Tales during the mid 70's. Deathlok is actually the dead body of Luther Manning, resurrected from cryonic storage and melded with machine parts to become a cyborg. He quickly rebels against his maker (Ryker, the main villain of the piece) and seeks his destiny in a dystopian New York ...more

Part of the last great surge of new creations from Marvel. It may seem that the initial 1960s burst of creativity ended with Daredevil in 1964, but that was largely due to the physical limitations on Marvel's line of titles due to distribution troubles. Around the mid-70s, with Marvel now able to expand their line, the company took on a ton of talent and started pushing out new ideas like crazy.

This is what Marvel should STILL be doing, instead of endless ...more

The first part of this book is the Deathlok stories from Astonishing Tales. I had never read those before. These second part of the book is the Deathlok guest appearances from various Marvel titles that wrapped up the story. The first part was OK but the second part was better. I especially liked the 3 issues of Captain America by J.M. Dematteis and Mike Zeck that end this book.

Fun, high concept Marvel Comics from the 70s. Only loses me when The Thing and the rest of the FF appear in the last few stories.

This along with the 70's Guardians of the Galaxy, the Starlin Capt Marvel and Warlock material are my SF favs. Great stuff and holds up well. Pretty timeless, I think.
