good art and typical marvel wartime stories. Feb. 11 2012
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is much like the first volume except it doesn't have bill everetts art. This is typical VERY unpolitically correct wartime stories. By this time the submariner is a total American patriot. He smashes the axis whereever he can and usually in the ocean of course. He doesn't fly around anymore though and the secondary characters and storylines about his people are not the main focus here. Compared to the earlier work this is inferior stuff but it's still good wartime stuff. The secondary character the Angel is in this one too. He was in the title till nubmer 20 or so I believe. The axis forces are drawn as hideous charactures with fangs or square heada and buck teeth. This was racist of course but like I said this was wartime and noone would care much about it back then.
The main thing was that the comic was a way for kids and adults to release their anger at the axis. So when the submariner says " I will go slappy on a jappy" you get the point. This is vintage stuff though and obviously you must be in the mood for this era comics. But you can't get upset about the stereotypes because it's wartime and different era. Today we'd have the japanese look normal of course and not like monsters etc but when this was made the goal wasn't reality but release! So sit back and read comics from one of the most brutal times in earths history and that's sayin' something. The axis doesn't have a chance the sub mariner is now with the u.s. (instead of fighting with it!) and he's mad and he's going to smash the axis for you. Strangely the angel character rarely fights the axis in this or any of his stories and that would be like most of the wartime issues of d.c comics! Which always had great war covers but few war stories!

No Bill Everett BUT... Feb. 18 2008
By Michael R. Tuohey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Even though there is no completely Bill Everett art in this volume, Sub-Mariner is a brash and visually interesting character. Full of naive retro-fun, this second volume is an enjoyable experience.
