ATLAS ERA HEROES
Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Heroes Volume 1
Written by STAN LEE. Penciled by BILL EVERETT, JOHN ROMITA, CARL BURGOS, RUSS HEATH & WAYNE BORING. Cover by CARL BURGOS
As the '50s dawned and the Atlas Era was born, the day of the Nazi-stomping super hero had passed, and in its place came a new style of hero reflective of the changing times.
Marvel Boy: Rejecting the tyranny of Earth's governments, scientist Dr. Matthew Grayson built an experimental spacecraft and traveled to the planet Uranus with his infant son, Robert. In this incredible environment, young Robert developed marvelous powers.
The Hero Revival: The year was 1953, and with fear of Communism clutching the nation's attention, Atlas Comics publisher Martin Goodman tapped Stan Lee - along with artists John Romita, Bill Everett, Carl Burgos and Russ Heath - to stage a revival of the most-famous super heroes of the era. Bursting onto the pages of YOUNG MEN, the Human Torch, Captain America and the Sub-Mariner made their explosive return!
The inaugural volume of a line collecting the exceptionally rare 1950s appearances of Captain America, the Human Torch, the Sub-Mariner, Marvel Boy, the Black Knight and more, ATLAS ERA HEROES VOL. 1 is just the first peek into a historical bridge between the Golden Age and the Marvel Age of Heroes.
Collecting MARVEL BOY #1-2, ASTONISHING #3-6 and YOUNG MEN #24-28. 304 PGS. Rated All Ages.

Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Heroes Volume 2
Featuring Captain America, Human Torch & Sub-Mariner. Penciled by JOHN ROMITA, DICK AYERS, BILL EVERETT, MORT LAWRENCE & BOB POWELL. Cover by JOHN ROMITA.
The Atlas Era Hero Revival continues with the adventures of the comics' most famous trio of Communist conquering heroes: Captain America, the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner! Beginning with the Big Three's anthology adventures in Men's Adventures, we then dive headlong into Captain America's complete 1954 solo series. Illustrated by Bullpen legend John Romita in some of his very first super hero stories, you'll see Cap and Bucky fight Fifth Columnists, Commie spies and even the Soviet Electro! Next up, it's the Human Torch and Toro! Returned from his slumber by an atomic bomb, the Torch has rejoined his young sidekick in a battle to clean up threats as amazing and entertaining as vampires, killer robots and his 1950s nemesis, the Vulture. Their crime-fighting adventures even take on a global purchase, stretching all the way to the 38th Parallel and Communist Korea! And finally, for a quick taste of what's to come in Atlas Era Heroes' next volume, comes an assortment of Bill Everett's lavishly drawn tales of the lord of the Atlantis, Namor the Sub-Mariner. Considered by many to be the definitive take on the character, Everett's '50s Sub-Mariner is nothing less than treasure from the deep! We'd be remiss to leave you without a bevy of historical bonuses, including a rare Human Torch tale that went unprinted for more than a decade, original artwork, Atlas Era house ads and an introduction by Hero Revival scholar extraordinaire Roy Thomas.
Collecting MEN'S ADVENTURES #27-28, CAPTAIN AMERICA #76-78, HUMAN TORCH #36-38 and MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #16.

Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Heroes Volume 3
Written by VARIOUS with STAN LEE. Penciled by BILL EVERETT with DICK AYERS, MORT LAWRENCE, HOWARD POST & VARIOUS. Cover by SYD SHORES.
The Atlas Era Heroes hits the high-water mark of the 1954 revival with the sovereign of the seven seas, the Sub-Mariner! Collected for the first time ever, the Atlas SUB-MARINER series showcases Bill Everett's most lavish, most manic and most exciting interpretation of his undersea creation. Supported by Namora, Princess Fen and intrepid love interest Betty Dean, Namor faces off against the nefarious Prince Byrrah, his own doppelganger, giant crocodiles and Communists a-plenty in issue after issue of pre-Code action and marine adventure. From all-out invasions of the surface world to the perils of exile from Atlantis, these pages define the Sub-Mariner in a way never before, and perhaps never since, captured in any comic series! Along with Dick Ayer's Human Torch and backup stories featuring the terrors of the deep, you'll also be treated to Everett's tales of the young Namor and how he came to be the hot-headed protector the kingdom beneath the Antarctic ice.
