"I’m about 4-5 months behind on Justice League, maybe more. I wait utnil they’re on sale for $1 at Comxiology and then snap them up. It’s a book that I think benefits from being read digitally, given how text-heavy it can be,…"
"Golden Age Marvel is not high on my buy list (nothing wrong with it, it's just not my first pick) but I agree, the Torch is the least interesting.
But yeah, Johnny's Strange Tales run isn't what I'd call legendary either.
""Will it contain stories not already on my bookshelf?"
No, it will not.
Burgos himself did not stay as long on Torch as Everett did on Sub-Matriner.
If you have all the MMW Marvel Mystery Comics (and various others such as back-ups in MMW…"
"Will the Burgos series run beyond the Marvel Masterworks? That is to say, will it contain stories not already on my bookshelf? I hadn't planned to buy this series -- like you, Jeff, I like the Torch the least of the Big Three. But I'll…"
"I loved the Original Human Torch stories a lot more than the Johnny Storm ones from Strange Tales. Plus the OHT was featured in The Invaders at the same time.
But wouldn't a Torch vs Torch rematch been cool? They gave us another…"

I just ordered the Adam Strange Omnibus. Theoretically I could get rid of all my reprints (and I will get rid of the Showcase collection) but they're all in Strange Adventures issues (I have maybe one original…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
