A wonderful collection of not-often seen early comic book stories. The artwork goes from "ok" to "fabulous" - depending on artist. Stories for the most part hold well and capture the spirit of these early times. I urge all to read all the intros and even the back page compendium because they are well worth it! You can tell that the post-Wertham "self-imposed" censur did not exist then!
