The Torch stories & covers from Marvel Mystery #1-34, Human Torch #2-7, All Winners #1-4, LOTS more. 1939-54. Highly Recommended. By Carl Burgos, with Bill Everett. Marvel’s first super hero, the burning-hot hit known as the Human Torch, seared his way into readers’ minds in 1939, setting the path for all Marvel icons to come. Carl Burgos’ fiery hero wasn’t a typical do-gooder; he was a creation of cutting-edge science in a world that was terrified by his burning visage. In this first-time-ever collection of every Human Torch tale from the character’s debut through Carl Burgos’ April 1942 induction into the war effort–plus his rare post-war and 1950s “superhero revival” stories.
