Metal Men

Yes it's a bonus review today thanks to the benefit of an overdue lazy weekend. This time it's the first volume of Showcase Presents: Metal Men by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru. The Metal Men are one of DC's quirker comics, it even has a mad scientist at it center, and probably because of that they've always been relegated to cult status, with the low sales that entails.

Which is really a same because the Metal Men are some of the best characters DC has, as this book shows. The stories are simple (typically a giant space robot of some sort attacks the Earth for some poorly defined reason) but that doesn't matter at all. There's just so much fun and downright joy to be had in this book.
