Now his former partner Domino is pointing a gun at Wilson’s head on live TV, telling a panel of Senators that he’s full of [REDACTED]. But when the truth finally does emerge, the walls will come tumbling down and everybody will be caught in the crossfire just the way Deadpool likes it. Don’t miss the conclusion of Duane (Cable) Swierczynski’s and artist Jason (Body Bags) Pearson’s full-tilt double-barrel assault on reality.

The greatest comic magazine of the Golden Age returns with the Marvel Masterworks! Headlining the heavy-hitters of the Timely era, Marvel Mystery Comics has it all—from top-of-the-field super hero action to bizarre mystery, otherworldly noir, jungle adventure and boy detectives! And it all starts off with the history-making Human Torch/Sub-Mariner team-up by the titanic talents Carl Burgos and Bill Everett! Then the Human Torch’s sidekick Toro, the Flaming Kid, makes his Marvel Mystery debut. Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner, takes his uniquely anarchic brand of action straight to the Nazis’ noses, while the Angel’s origin is revealed and he begins a multi-part crusade against the sexy villainess, the Cat’s Paw. Rounded out by Jack Kirby’s eerie agent of vengeance, the Vision; the wonderfully weird Electro; Terry Vance, School Boy Sleuth; and the adventures of Ka-Zar, it’s the classic package that made Marvel famous!

Penciled by JOHN BUSCEMA with JACK KIRBY
Covers by JOHN BUSCEMA & DEAN WHITE
The world’s favorite space-faring super hero in his continuing saga of anguish and adventure! He sacrificed himself to save his home world of Zenn-La from the planet-devouring menace, Galactus, saving those he loved in exchange for a life of servitude as the Silver Surfer. Now, after disobeying his master, Norrin Radd is stranded on the planet Earth—forever removed from his love, Shalla-Bal, and from the beckoning spaceways! A high point of epic adventure and lyrical drama, The Silver Surfer took the comic-book super hero to all-new heights. Using their ravaged protagonist as a lens through which they could comment on the social injustices of the era, Stan Lee and John Buscema turned the Surfer into the ultimate outsider archetype, reflecting the reader’s world in his metallic skin. In these pages the Surfer will face ghosts from beyond the grave seeking redemption, the horrors of war, the devious Mephisto, and mighty Marvel heroes from Spider-Man to the Human Torch and the Inhumans.

But when the villains learn Osborn’s plan, they devise a plan of their own — for revenge. Soon, Daken finds himself the hunted instead of the hunter. Does he have the raw survival instincts to muscle through? He’d better hope so. Because even if he fights his way out of this mess, he still has to answer to Osborn. And his father.
