It’s a jam-packed Tales of Suspense monster bonanza! And you know you can’t keep a good monster down, no way, no how! Before they revolutionized the super hero set, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby made monsters their daily diet: Klaag. Oog. Bruttu. Monstrollo. Skyscraper-tall lumbering beasts from outer space; muck-covered monsters from the Savannah swamps; lost world anachronisms from beyond time; and they were all here to teach humanity a lesson, whether we liked it or not.

And after Kirby scares you with his creatures from the id, Steve Ditko will tear at your conscience from the inside out in tense suspense-thrillers cast with nervous-eyed dreamers and sweaty-palmed schemers, none of whom make it out with getting theirs.

Each and every tale is executed by a master of storytelling – by the talents that defined the comic book medium for a generation – and each one is brought to you, gleamingly restored, in the fan-favorite Marvel Masterworks line!
