Comment: This is a nice one, nice condition & nicely scanned. Also has a nice variety of better-than-average artists: Al Gabriele (Timely artist) on cover & Uncle Sam feature (dynamic fight scenes a la Captain America), Charles Sultan on Unknown, Ruben Moriera on G-2, & Al McWilliams on Destroyer 171. My favorite is Fred Guardineer on Quicksilver. Bob
