- Full Description
This popular comic from publisher Charlton is collected for the first time! Joe Gill (Flash Gordon, House of Mystery) and Sam Glanzman (Our Army at War, Star Spangled War Stories, USS Stevens, Jungle Tales of Tarzan) brought this Roman hero/god to life, the son of Zeus in Roman mythology. Marvel also had their version of Hercules, appearing in Thor, but like Robin Hood, anyone could publish their own take on famous characters or legends of history. Glanzman is always a delight to read.
Collected in a beautiful archival format and showcased exactly as they appeared in their original state.
Charlton was a enigma among publishers. Notorious for their poor printing and bizarre titles, they also gave free rein to creators. So Steve Ditko loved working there, creating amazing works like The Blue Beetle and sci-fi and fantasy stories that rival the work he did with Stan Lee. Dick Giordano, who rose to publisher at DC, got his start there in the 1950s, doing covers and stories, often influenced by Wally Wood. And then there was Glanzman, who did everything from war comics to this Roman god, as well as the notorious and unapproved Jungle Tales of Tarzan for this fledgling but feisty little company, battling it out for newstand space with the big boys.
