Collects Strange Tales #101-134 & Annual #2, 1962-65. Highly Recommended. By Stan Lee, Larry Ivie. Art by Jack Kirby, Dick Ayers, Carl Burgos and Bob Powell. After the groundbreaking debut of Fantastic Four, readers couldn't get enough of Marvel's innovative new heroes -- especially the Human Torch! So Stan & Jack gave the fiery teen sensation his own series in the pages of Strange Tales, replacing the classic monster stories there. Kind of. After a hot streak of solo stories, the Torch was joined by the Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing, and the two teammates tackled the Wizard, the Sandman, the Rabble Rouser, Plantman and the one and only Paste-Pot Pete! Plus 16 bonus pages of original art and new covers from the reprint series.

After the groundbreaking debut of Fantastic Four, readers couldn't get enough of Marvel's innovative new heroes -- especially the Human Torch! So Stan & Jack gave the fiery teen sensation his own series in the pages of Strange Tales, replacing the classic monster stories there. Kind of. After a hot streak of solo stories, the Torch was joined by the Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing, and the two teammates tackled the Wizard, the Sandman, the Rabble Rouser, Plantman and the one and only Paste-Pot Pete! Plus 16 bonus pages of original art and new covers from the reprint series.

Also featuring Marvel's first fire and ice battle between the Torch and the X-Men's Iceman with guest stars Spider-Man, Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman and a Famous Foursome named John, Paul, George and Ringo.

This was a great little series, with stand-alone stories that didn't depend on you knowing what was happening in the rest of the Marvel universe. So they are especially readable now, cool little tales of Johnny Storm, with appearances from Spider-Man, the milestone "try-out" appearance of the first revival of Captain America, prelude to his resurrection in Avengers #4...and much more. A personal favorite, a quiet little title for the real Marvel fan. And it's all here, from the beginning until Doctor Strange and Nick Fury took the title away from Johnny and Ben!
