Tales to Astonish, issue #65, Mar. 1965 Giant Man gets a new costume and helmet."Presenting The New Giant Man". The new costume was okay, but I still think that the original Giant Man costume was the best. With art by Don Heck on this issue.
Just for the record, for all Ditko completists out there, Steve Ditko pencilled Tales to Astonish, issue # 61, Nov. 1964, with inks by George Bell. In my opinion, George Bell's inks never complemented Kirby or Ditko, but from what I understand, George Bell was very handy to have around to get a quickie deadline on time. Mr. Bell was a life saver, who could knock those pages out.
For Giant Man and The Wasp, it all came to a end with Tales to Astonish, issue # 69, July, 1965. The Sub Mariner took over Giant Man's spot, with issue # 70. It really was the end of a era.
Even though he was'nt cover credited, it appears that Jack Kirby did most of the covers of this volume. And really nice covers they are. These covers in this volume are very classic, Silver Age Marvel, in the purest sense. My favorite Marvel period was the years between 1958 thru about 1968. After that time Marvel started to get that sort of bronze age beginnings feel to their books. Silver is so much brighter than bronze.
This Marvel Masterworks Ant Man / Giant Man volume 2 reprints Tales to Astonish issues #53-69. Written and drawn by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Dick Ayers, Don Heck, Carl Burgos, Bob Powell and Steve Ditko. This edition is a must have for your Silver Age Marvel Masterworks book shelf, and I highly recommend it. Cheers!
