    1. So this volume reprints very early Human Torch solo stories (and later, team ups with the Thing) that I barely knew existed from Strange Tales. This are very early stories right at the time the Marvel Universe got going in the early 60s. To give you an idea of the timeline, these stories were being published prior to Captain American being re-introduced in Avengers 4. As far as the stories themselves go, very typical of 60s Marvel, but not the top tier. Very wordy stories still aimed more at you [...]


    2. Johnny storm is a complex kid.He likes girls, cars, making fun of his friend's complexion, and rotating between doubting his self worth and crippling narcissism.He also happens to be the human torch.Through this volume we find him trying to either impress girls, or prove he can do things on his own. Typically both scenarios end with him getting doused with water or ensnared in some handy asbestos lined whatever, only for him to mentally beat himself up for being a dumb teenager and somehow overc [...]


    3. This collection reprints the complete run of Human Torch solo stories that originally appeared in issues #101 to #134 and Annual #2 of STRANGE TALES.Though the stories are fairly primitive, and the villains strictly third-tier, they have an early 60s charm that Marvel was so good at presenting.These stories find Johnny Storm, and his sister Sue, living in upstate New York in the small town of Glenview, though they are still full-fledged members of the Fantastic Four and stories occasionally have [...]


    4. Reprints Strange Tales #101-134 and Annual #1. The Human Torch sets out on his own to stop crime and occassionally gets assistance from his fantastic friends. The Human Torch as a solo act just doesn't quite hold up as well. The melodrama of the Fantastic Four develops through the "family" interaction, but here Johnny is solo until later issues when they smartly paired him with the Thing. Even that doesn't make much sense however because once again, it would be better just to read the Fantastic [...]


    5. This collection of throw-away Torch stories originally published in Strange Tales adds next to nothing to the Fantastic Four legacy. Too-cute writing by Stan Lee trying to emulate the teenage Johnny Storm, and abysmal third-rate villains, make this collection painful to wade through. Except for a couple of Jack Kirby-drawn issues (including the best of the bunch -- a tryout story for the reintroduction of Captain America)and numerous great Kirby covers, one would be better off spending his or he [...]


    6. I've given most of the Marvel Essentials 5 stars, if for nothing else than creating characters that have stood the test of time. Most of the good characters here however were created elsewhere, and there were some pretty bad stories.
