The Thing: Liberty Legion - Roy Thomas, John Buscema, Sal Buscema, Rich Buckler, Dick Ayers, Frank Robbins, Don Heck This was one of my favorite storylines as a kid, since the original Liberty Legion stories really ended up including all of Marvel Comics' major Golden Age characters in one tale. This book includes Invaders #5-6 and Marvel Premiere #29-30, which were the first appearances of the Liberty Legion. The rest of the book is filled out by a three-part time travel tale that ran between a Fantastic Four Annual and the Thing's team-up title, Marvel Two-in-One. The Invaders (Captain America, Sub-Mariner and the original Human Torch) are co-stars in the FF tale, and Marvel Two-in-One Annual #1 and issue #20 close out the story. There's some great artwork by John and Sal Buscema, Frank Robbins and Don Heck (Heck and Robbins' pencils are unfortunately marred by Vince Colletta's signature hack inking), and the tale is brought together by ultimate fan-turned-pro Roy Thomas. A fun story and some great bronze age comics!
