Completely re-mastered with all-new coloring that faithfully mimics the look of the original comics! Captain Action is back in Action! The world's first action figure, Captain Action burst onto the scene just as the '60s superhero craze was heating up. This volume lovingly celebrates the timeless tales from the Silver Age by top talents like Gil Kane, Wally Wood, and Jim Shooter, re-presented for the first time ever since they were first published nearly half a century ago. Also featuring Action Boy, Khem, The Silver Streak, and the fearsome Doctor Evil. All five of the original issues are here, along with some unexpected treasures!"--
