Strange Tales #101 (10/01/1962)

detail.jpgStrange Tales #101 features the Human Torch getting his own solo adventure. In this issue the Human Torch takes on the Destroyer, who is threatening Glendale’s amusement park. Yeah, the Human Torch is apparently living in Glendale now. About the only thing that wasn’t awful about this issue Kirby’s artwork. Now that I have gone over the good, let me go over the bad, and there’s a lot of bad. Probably the biggest issue is the Human Torch all of a sudden having a secret identity. How does that make any sense? Also, the story is just another communist plot with uninspired villain that pretty much plagued most of Ant-Man’s early adventures. Avoid this train wreck of an issue.
