The Marvel Masterworks enter Phase Two of the Marvel Age of Comics with the debut of one of comics' most unique heroes-Deathlok!
No longer a man, but a mockery of a man, an amalgam of reanimated flesh and computer circuitry, military strategist Col. Luther Manning has been locked in a state of living death. Stripped of his family, his humanity, but not his will, Manning has become the cyborg, Deathlok the Demolisher-a weapon of war programmed solely for destruction. A challenging blend of science fiction and psychological war journal, Deathlok set the pace for anti-heroes in the turbulent post-Watergate '70s.
Illustrated by Rich Buckler and co-written by Doug Moench and Bill Mantlo, Deathlok's feature in Astonishing Tales forged a new path and pushed the moral relevance of Marvel Comics into a bold, and often frightening, new future. Collected for the first time ever, the complete Deathlok saga, culminating in a classic cross-time adventure with Captain America, is a must-have for each and every discerning Marvel reader!
Collecting Astonishing Tales #25-28, 30-36, Marvel Spotlight #33, Marvel Team-Up #46, Marvel Two-In-One #27, 54 and Captain America #286-288.
The marbled variant cover edition is #127 in the chronological numbering.
