Description

Brand new adventures featuring favorite Silver-Age era British superheroes in this 64 page giant. The Steel Claw by Charlie Higson, The Spider written by Rob Williams and drawn by John McCrea, Mytek the Mighty by Suyi Davies Okungbowa, Johnny Future drawn by Tom Raney, House of Dolman by Simon Furman and Davi Go, Thunderbolt by Helen O’Hara, and Cursitor Doom by Maura McHugh and Andreas Butzbach. All but one story is in full color and art is very good. Each hero and heroine is profiled with career, first appearances, etc.

The Spider could occasionally display “a more moral, almost heroic side,” but he’s essentially a bad guy, recruiting criminals for his “Empire of Crime.” He first appeared in Lion in 1964. Johnny Future began his career in Fantastic in 1967. He’s a missing link between stone age and primitive man, evading authorities and now transformed into a super-evolved human…and became a costumed super-hero.

The Steel Claw first appeared in Valiant in 1962. He lost his hand in a lab accident. First a bitter baddie, he plotted to blow up New York City but was thwarted by his former mentor, the brilliant Professor Barrington. He was considered temporarily insane and was approached by the British Secret Service to join its Shadow Squad. Now he is a costumed hero, a detective and a bounty hunter…
