Dig This Swingin’ Guide to MARVEL’s Silver Age Paperbacks

HERO-A-GO-GO! Trade collections in their infancy…

UPDATED 7/2/20: TwoMorrows, our favorite publisher of comics history books and mags — such as Back Issue, Alter Ego and RetroFan — has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. So here’s your chance to help keep their lights on — for real — and entertain yourself in the process: Pick up one of their terrific books, like Michael Eury’s Hero-A-Go-Go! We serialized the book when it came out in 2017 and throughout this summer, we’ll be running some of those segments again to whet your appetite. Hero-A-Go-Go! is one of my personal faves and you can click here to order it, directly from TwoMorrows. Dig it. — Dan

Every Saturday for 13 weeks, we’re serializing Back Issue editor Michael Eury’s upcoming book Hero-A-Go-Go! — a ginchy exploration of the Silver Age and Swingin’ Sixties. For other installments, click here. And you can order the book here.

For this week’s entry, I’ve decided to present a complete segment as published in the book itself. It gives you a real taste of just how much fun it is to page through this colorful work.

The subject? Marvel’s ’60s paperbacks:
