Review: Timely 70th Anniversary Collection

Timely 70th Anniversary Collection by James Robinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an excellent collection of stories about Timely/Marvel’s original characters from the Golden Age. It was also one of the few comic book “events” that I’ve been able to stomach over the past twenty years.

This collects all 12th of the anniversary specials, featuring Captain America, the original Human Torch, the Sub-Mariner, the All Winners Squad, the Young Allies, and even such obscure characters as the Phantom Reporter and Marvex. A very fun read on all counts – GA characters infused but not overpowered by modern sensibilities, without a lot of deconstruction.
