Collects Tor #1, 3-5, 1953-54 and Naza-Stone Age Warrior #1, 1963. Highly Recommended. By Norman Maurer,  Joe Kubert and Mort Meskin. Joe Kubert’s first creator-owned series from the pre-code era. The prehistoric warrior Tor was superior to the others in his clan, with an extra spark of humanity, instinctively striving for a better, more civilized way of life.  Thanks to the work and obvious love that went into this series, what might have become a standard adventure strip, with man battling monster within the unusual prehistoric-world settings and situations, was actually elevated to art!

Description

Joe Kubert’s first creator-owned series from the pre-code era. The prehistoric warrior Tor was superior to the others in his clan, with an extra spark of humanity, instinctively striving for a better, more civilized way of life.  Thanks to the work and obvious love that went into this series, what might have become a standard adventure strip, with man battling monster within the unusual prehistoric-world settings and situations, was actually elevated to art!

Thrills, adventure and danger that lurked everywhere — one million years ago! Issue #2 is not included since it was published in 3D. #3 features Danny Dreams by Alex Toth.

Kubert brought back Tor to DC in 1975, in his self-published comic hybrid magazine Sojourn in 1977, to Marvel in 1993, and back to DC again in 2001. This was obviously a character close to his heart. Here are the very first stories, from the wild unparalleled days of the early 1950s, published by St. John, one of the most innovative publishers of the Golden Age.

Also here is an issue of Naza, published by Dell Comics over 9 issues from 1963-66. Another stone-age warrior, Naza was a direct descendant of Tor, with cool painted covers.
