human torch (1974): 1-8

There have been two Human Torches. The original Human Torch was an android that first appeared in the Golden Age. The modern Human Torch is Johnny Storm, founding member of the Fantastic Four. During the Silver Age, he also had his own feature in Strange Tales.

This series reprinted modern Human Torch stories from Strange Tales and original Human Torch stories from various Golden Age comics. The Strange Tales stories are 13 pages each. Issues 1 and 5 have 12 page stories so 1 page is missing from each story. The rest of the issues are complete. These stories were also reprinted previously in early Marvel Tales. There are now Masterworks and Essentials books that cover the same issues and more.

The Original Human Torch stories vary in length from 5 to 8 pages. Their reprint info comes from the Marvel Index: Fantastic Four by George Olshevsky. These stories have now been reprinted in Marvel's Golden Age Masterworks books.
