Imperius Rex! Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner joins the Marvel Masterworks in his first sensational Silver Age collection! Headed by Stan "The Man" Lee and illustrated by Gene "The Dean" Colan, you'll dive headlong into the undersea kingdom of Atlantis, and encounter some of the most fascinating heroes and villains in Marvel history! It all kicks off with a classic battle between the hot-headed Subby and the horn-headed Daredevil, before Namor returns at last to Atlantis and begins his quest to regain the crown that is rightfully his. Opposed by Warlord Krang, Namor must locate the ancient Trident of Neptune to reassert his claim as true heir to the throne - while the life of lovely Lady Dorma hangs in the balance! Then, it's back to the surface world for action aplenty with the Puppet Master, a historic throwdown with Iron Man, the scheming Secret Empire saga, and Krang's invasion of New York City"--Amazon.com, viewed September 14, 2011.… (more)

Comicdom's original anti-hero returned to his own series in 1965 in Tales To Astonish #70 alongside the adventures of Marvel's other great goodie/baddie The Hulk.

This volume presents the very first Sub-Mariner story from 1939, a run in with Daredevil from DD #7 (also the first appearance of DD in his famous red suit) plus the first 18 installments from TTA.

Gene Colan's shadowy, even murky style was uniquely suited to depicting Subbie's underwater adventures and Stan Lee's writing gives these stories some of the mythic quality also used to great effect for Thor during the same period.

The final issue reprinted in this volume sees the return of The Sub-Mariner's creator Bill Everett and there are helping hand lent by Jack Kirby and Roy Thomas as well. ( )
