"This book, like no other spotlighting the comic book phenomenon, reveals the original pulp sources for a selection of four color adaptations, an exceptional effort of literary detective work (there are others still to be discovered) that not only defines a combination of crossover mediums for the first time, but reveals another compelling facet in the life and work of Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholoson. It's time to salute the Major for his uncompromising bravado and vision. Ten-hup!"
- Jim Steranko (from the Foreword).
