Review: Marvel Masterworks: Golden Age All-Winners, Vol. 1

Marvel Masterworks: Golden Age All-Winners, Vol. 1
Marvel Masterworks: Golden Age All-Winners, Vol. 1 by Joe Simon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first volume of what would become Marvel Comics’ first team book isn’t bad. The first issue has Bill Everett, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, and Carl Burgos handling their legendary characters (Sub-Mariner, Captain America, and Human Torch), but the artwork’s a tad sporadic after that, with other artists trying to copy S&K on Cap.

The introduction of the Destroyer feature was a pleasant surprise, as was the inclusion of several early Whizzer stories. The book is a great look at early, wartime Marvel (then Timely Comics), and is an enjoyable read for any golden age comics fan.
