Product Description

From Booklist

Vintage Kubert is on display in a lavish series reprinting the entire run of Tor, Kubert's contribution to the array of ersatz Tarzans that mushroomed in the 1950s. What distinguished Tor was that it was set "a million years ago," so the character fought dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts rather than lions and apes. The third, concluding volume of the series features a story proposed as a newspaper strip in the 1960s and a lengthy 1993 tale in which Tor saves his tribe from subhumans who resemble a cross between the Flintstones and the hillbillies from Deliverance. Tor's life seemingly consists of one epic battle after another; plot and characterization are minimal. All the better to show off Kubert's dynamic capability for portraying action! Of course, Tor has never looked nearly this good before. Presentation and price may seem excessive for these simple, rather silly tales, but dyed-in-the-wool Kubert fans will be delighted to finally get their hands on these long unavailable works.

Format: Hardcover
For the price which is alot this is not as nicely bound as the other DC Archives type books. However innovation is found here for sure and the history is there. For the price, I'd probably expect a pair of 3D glasses and more of the 3D comics printed in their original format. There are some 3D comics inside but no glasses. That said the comic is fun but I'd probably buy the paper back, for almost $80, one would expect more.
