    1. The writing sinks this to "historical interest only". Meskin did a lot of solid work, but it can't save the material. Really nicely produced volume, though. I wish all reissues of the old pulpy stuff were done this well: original colors, matte off-white paper, page numbers, full info about original publication, etc.


    2. Another of Fantagraphics's beautifully packaged surveys of forgotten artists.Mort Meskin was a skilled journeyman who worked for a variety of mid-level publishers in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, cycling through any number of the many genres which came and went in that time. This volume offers a well-curated selection of that body of work: superheroes, western, crime, and romance are all represented here, each showing off a different side of his work.

    3. I'm a sucker for these collections of classic pulp comics stuff. But this time I think I went too far. I can see why artist like Ditko site Meskin as an inspiration. You can look past the sloppy inking and awful old color processes. But unfortunately, none of this stuff is very readable. If he had someone good writing these stories, they would have been a bit more entertaining.


    4. Works best as a supplement to "From Shadow to Light" by Steven Brower, the best book about Meskin and his art out there. Quality of the artwork reproduction varies from story to story. One thing that is obvious, especially if you look at the "Kid Crusaders" story, is how much Steve Ditko studied and learned from Meskin's 1940's comic book work.
