The The Human Torch wiki last edited by Imaginathor on 04/12/13 12:44PM View full history

The Human Torch (Jim Hammond) was one of the first characters created in the modern day "Marvel Universe" having first appeared in Marvel Comics #1, published by Timely. In 1940, he got his own ongoing series kicking off with "The Human Torch Comics #2", the elusive first issue actually being Red Raven Comics #1. More confusion would stem from the fact that #4 (the third issue) read #3 on the cover and there was no cover with a 4 since there were actually two issues labeled #5. Following the early mix-ups with issue numbering however the series began a proper numbering with #6 (which was actually the sixth issue, rather then the 5th which it would have been had the original numbering been kept). The comic went on to last for 38 issues but due to the fact that the first 29 were published at a quarterly rate, it was only in 1954 that the final issue came out.
