I always loved Marvel's Captain Marvel, especially in his green uniform days. The highlights of this collection would be MSH #13 & #14, and Captain Marvel #1 (which are rare or expensive). Gene Colan stayed on the title through #4 (& then was replaced w/ varying degrees of success by Don Heck & Dick Ayers). Though Vince Colletta was not Colan's best inker, in 1967/68, Gene's work was strong & definite enough that most of what he did looked good. Arnold Drake could not compare in writing w/ Stan Lee or Roy Thomas. The character went through many changes in powers, mission, foes & continuity from issue to issue is a little weak. This was Marvel's 1st out-&-out Sci-Fi character (just before Silver Surfer got a title), so you can see them weaving back & forth btwn space opera & earth-based melodrama. The prices for this hardcover are absurd. Marvel, please bring out Captain Marvel volume 1 in paperback!!!
