You get: at least a smidgeon of (art by) Carmine Infantino, Murphy Anderson, Ross Andru, Mike Sekowsky. Mainly art by Dick Dillin, Joe Giella, Dick Giordano; Neal Adams, Nick Cardy secondly. Nick Cardy's is for instance the book's cover: they have blown up the original cover illo and airbrushed it a little! -but it actaully grows on you; Cardy's covers were a lot like paperback covers anyway. (Writing): a Robert Kanigher story, and it is cool. Then Denny O'Neil plotted the first Mike Friedrich story. Friedrich's writing is some of the most effusive and creative writing I have ever seen: crazy stuff, intentionally; he loved DC and seemed to want to make the whole thing more visceral. He does so, within the set formulaic premises I guess they had to use, like breaking up into teams of two. Len Wein steps in as writer on issue 100 in 1972. Personally, I wished that 1971 had gone on forever because there was so much more Friedrich could have done in that vein. It was a time when it was easy to write highly imaginative comics. He or someone else could even take some of the old material now and write James Joyce sort of riffs from it. Len Wein is as talented; words however seem to dominate a bit over the images from then on in. Five stories in this whomping collection I would see as worthy for inclusion in a DC Century anthology because they're good, and because they capture something unique about comics history.
Guest stars (annual cross-overs aside): Solomon Grundy, the Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Deadman, Adam Strange.
PS:Also to highlight the wonderful covers of Nick Cardy, another incredible artist of Silver Age of comics.Very good times!
