TIMELY COMICS 70TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION COVER GALLERY - PART ONE...
Back in 2009, MARVEL celebrated its 70th Anniversary by
releasing 11 retro-style mags about their heroes from the '30s & '40s.
However, in 1939, Marvel was called TIMELY, and that was the name
given to the collected edition which I acquired only a few days ago. I'd
actually bought some of the single issues at the time, but didn't have a
complete set, so it was nice to read what I missed back in '09.
The original issues also contained reprints from the '40s, which
the book doesn't include, but don't let that deter you from tracking
down a copy. I'm thoroughly enjoying working my way through these
excellent tales, which are well-worth the read. See the mighty Prince
NAMOR, The SUB-MARINER, maintain all his regal nobility as he
mercilessly disposes of a sub-load of ruthless NAZIS. See BUCKY
BARNES as the new CAPTAIN AMERICA, in a story that
will tug at your very heartstrings.
There's more of course, as you can see from the cataclysmic
cover gallery laid before your awestruck eyes. Cop a gander, then
scamper round to your nearest FORBIDDEN PLANET store (or
reasonable facsimile) and buy this book for yourselves. Trust
me, you'll be glad you did - guaranteed.
Coming in part two - the variant covers. Don't miss 'em!
