Review: Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era Tales of Suspense, Vol. 1

Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era Tales of Suspense, Vol. 1 by Jack Kirby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This Marvel Masterworks volume (one of the paperback versions) was a fun read, featuring the first 10 issues of Marvel’s Tales of Suspense, the comic that would eventually be home to Iron Man and later become Captain America’s title.

These stories are all more of a science fiction bent than the companion titles like Tales to Astonish or Strange Tales, but some of the monster or quirky stories fall into the groove here, too. There’s plenty of great artwork by artists that are legends: Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, John Buscema, Al Williamson.

Think of this as a comic book version of television’s The Twilight Zone, or perhaps Tales of Tomorrow. It will fill your average rainy afternoon quite nicely.
