Human Torch

The first issue of Timely Comics quarterly, giant sized (68 pages!) The Human Torch, which hit the newstands in Fall of 1940, was actually numbered #2, taking over the numbering from the very short-lived Red Raven Comics, a failed Simon and Kirby creation that was promptly given the axe.

The creation of writer/artist Carl Burgos, Torch was a hit since its debut in the iconic Marvel (Mystery) Comics #1 in 1939. So much so, that he demanded a bigger title of his own.

Now, let’s get this over with; The Human Torch was NOT human at all. He was an android created in a laboratory by a scientist named Phineas Horton. He really didn’t plan on his creation spontaneously combusting when exposed to oxygen, but this was an unfortunate glitch, or fortunate as it turns out, because he chose to use his power to combat evil.

Early on, Torch was almost an anti-hero, inspiring fear and anger among humanity. But the character was quickly toned-down, controlling when he would “flame on,” and given human qualities to the degree that the reader eventually forgot he was actually an android. Torch was given the alter-ego of Jim Hammond, a police officer in New York City. This gave him the edge on the various crimes that he would eventually thwart in the guise of the Human Torch.

As was the fashion since the advent of Batman’s Robin, Torch was given a juvenile sidekick, Toro, an exploited sideshow freak that could burst into flame at will, and had an aversion to wearing a shirt or long pants.

Another title which boasted lovely, detailed covers by master Alex Schomburg, Torch’s stories alternated with regular co-feature, Bill Everett’s The Sub-Mariner, a sure-fire (yes, I went there) recipe for success, as the two were paired together in several other titles (Marvel Mystery, All-Select, All-Winners, U.S.A., and even Subby’s own book!), but occasionally other heroes crept into co-features; The Falcon, The Fiery Mask, and The Patriot.

Burgos held the reigns of The Human Torch for as long as he could, both scripting and drawing the bulk of his stories in all the titles that featured the character, although he would occasionally let Mickey Spillane or Stan Lee write a script. Alas, he was conscripted, along with Sub-Mariner writer/artist Bill Everett, into the army in mid-1942 to help battle the bad guys for real, in WWII. His last issue on The Human Torch title was #7.

During this time, art duties on the Torch went mostly to either Harry Sahle or Al Gabriele, and later on Jimmy Thompson, and (rumoured) Mike Sekowsky, Gene Colon and Carmine Infantino.

It is hotly debated (I did it again) as to whether Burgos actually drew any Torch stories after his hitch was up. He did do some advertising work, and some horror/supernatural stories in the late 40’s

As with most hero books, the sales went steadily down after the war, and the original Timely Comics run ended with issue #35, in March of 1949.

The Early 40’s books are unbelievably pricey on the market, but the later 40’s books are harder to come by for the simple fact that they did not sell as many copies!

Issue #2

What's Human Torch #2 worth in 2021?

Human Torch Comics #1, numbered #2 as explained below, is the origin and 1st appearance of Toro. Toro appeared in numerous comics titles in the 1940s, both during World War II and the post-war era as the young fire clad hero apprenticed to Human Torch. The highest recorded sale of this book is a NM 9.4 copy that sold for $92,000 in 2009. There are two copies garded NM+ 9.6 that have never been recorded as sold that could bring 3x the number of the 9.4 given the market we are in right now. In anything but the highest grades this book has held relatively stead for the better part of the last decade. A 6.0 FN went for around $6,500 in 2012 and almost exactly the same in 2017, the last recorded sale of this grade. Increased value for a book this rare is an inevitability not a question. In 2018 a VG 4.0 sold for $8,900 which was nearly double the $5,000 it pulled in 2011. 

Why is this comic book valuable?

Ok, so, this is a little complicated but bear with us. If you are holding a Human Torch Comics #2 in your hand right now you are actually holding a Human Torch Comics #1. Here's how it works. In August 1940 Timely hit the newsstands with Red Raven Comics #1, a winged "super-man" dressed in red. Yeah, not the best idea since there was already a Superman without bizarre bright red wings that could fly, and bend steel and well you get the picture. So with issue number two they simply changed the name of the book and took the newly popular Human Torch and gave him his own adventures. He would co-star with Sub-mariner again in this new issue as he had previously in Marvel Mystery Comics.
