Monsters running wild!!! Sept. 28 2007
By Riley0091 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Before a Gamma bomb was detonated in the dessert, or a young student had a fateful run-in with a radioactive spider at Empire State University, and even before Marvel was Marvel, Stan Lee was in the monster business.

Under the banner of Atlas Comics, Lee and the amazing talents of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, Matt Baker, Carl Burgos and Joe Sinnott assaulted young 1950s readers with bold five-page, nine-panel horror/sci-fi stories with surprise ending "inspired" by the Twilight Zone tv series. Some much so, Lee stated in an interview, "I used to get letters from readers `Hey, I just saw Twilight Zone, and they used one of your stories from issue so-and-so.'"

Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Tales Suspense 1 beautifully reprints the first 10 issues of the title and brings out face-to-face killer robots, hulking behemoths the deadly Monstro, a killer Cyclops, invading Martians and many more oddball and off-beat menaces from the four-color universe - and beyond!

This collection is a must have for vintage monster comic book fans who have also enjoyed Dick Briefer's The Monster of Frankenstein, Monster Masterworks and Zombie Factory.

A pre-Marvel silver age superhero treat March 27 2008
By John H. Spruhan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This collection is in the monster science fiction genre, with many classic artists knoown for their earlier EC work, or who are better known for later Marvel silver age superhero work. The issues reprinted are very expensive to purchase, so besides the great Amazon discount, this is an excellant value for fans of early silver age comics or 50's era scifi/monster comics or EC comics.

classic monster sci fi comics. Feb. 10 2011
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are many great artists in here including JAck kirby, steven ditko, al williamson and many others. The stories are short and sweet as you would expect from the late fifties monster titles from marvel, this wasn't horror but it was the best short story sci fi comics of their day and they look stunning here. These are remastered to look better than ever. The series at this point was more varied artist wise than what it would become later with the great trio of kirby, ditko and paul renmien doing the main artwork, stan lee may have done most of these stories he certainly did the next volumes onward. Some of these were holdovers from other recently cancelled titles but most weren't. I am always grateful to be able to read old comics that look so stunning and new here, better than they did in fact on the cheap paper of the day that they were printed on. These are good fun reads that are straight of the fifties when people thought venus was a forested planet! But it's a good marvel vintage or atlas as they were known then book of well drawn fun at that.
