A real triple-threat theme issue describes Men of Mystery #104; with a major focus on the ever-popular BLACK TERROR and the top Standard/Nedor heroes of the 1940’s through a quartet of great classics originally published in the 14th issue of that companies’ superhero anthology, America’s Best.

Then, the stars of Eastern Colors’ Heroic Comics get big play, showcasing full adventures of HYDROMAN, MAN O’METAL (as illustrated by Golden Age WONDER WOMAN artist H. G. Peter), the origin of the (wait for the pun here–) “offbeat” superhero, The MUSIC MASTER, drawn by the great Bill Everett, and finally this issues’ first-time super-feature, The PURPLE ZOMBIE. as illustrated by lady artist Tarpe Mills. The rest of this tremendous volume is taken up with never-previously-reprinted vintage tales of DOLLMAN, AIRBOY, The HEAP, CAPTAIN FREEDOM, SHOCK GIBSON, The FLYING FOOL, GANGBUSTERS and HURRICANE KIDS. How’s THAT for” filler” material? Oh, the third “theme” of MOM #104 actually cross-covers all these titanic heroes, and that is the superstar ARTISTS that delineate this issue’s adventures, including (beyond the aforementioned) Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Dan Barry, Bernard Sachs, Al Bryant, Arthur Peddy, Arturo Cazeneuve, H. G. Peter, Ken Ernst and Bill Ely, among others. Where else can you get THIS much top-flight vintage super-heroics reprinted from long-defunct publishers using spectacular, state-of-the art reproductive techniques? Nowhere else- ONLY in Men Of Mystery #104
