Recently Read: Golden Age Sub-Mariner, Vol. 1

Reprints the first four 64-page Sub-Mariner comics from 1941. These stories, frankly, aren't as compellingly written or drawn as Bill Everett's first Subby stories. Spread thin, he was relying on assistants by this point (and about to enter the military). They are, nevertheless, worth a gamble. The Angel is the just okay backup strip. Jack Kirby's fantastic Angel cover for Marvel Mystery Comics #12 whetted my appetite for more Kirby Angel stories, but I don't think those ever happened (comics historians please clarify).

The volume is filled out with filler pieces by Mickey Spillane and Basil Wolverton (two creators not often mentioned in the same sentence), historical notes by Roy Thomas and the various house ads for all four issues, which appeared in other Marvel comics.
