This deluxe hardcover volume collects issues #10 to #13, which were first published in the tense summer of 1941—just before America entered World War II! It’s no coincidence that Silver Streak #10 introduced Captain Battle, a wounded veteran of the first World War dedicated to stopping the second one from ever happening! Featuring action-packed stories by Jack Cole (Plastic Man) and Bob Wood (Crime Does Not Pay), the indispensable Silver Streak Archives Volume 2 also reprints every gag strip, puzzle page, and prose adventure from the landmark series—and features a foreword by Michael T. Gilbert (Mr. Monster)!

Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar—also known to historians as El Cid—was an eleventh century Spanish military commander who led both Christians and Moors into battle. In the pages of Eerie magazine, however, writer Budd Lewis and artist Gonzalo Mayo transform El Cid into a larger-than-life fantasy warrior, battling dragons, trolls, and sirens for his life—and demons for his soul! This deluxe hardcover collects every El Cid adventure that ran in Warren Publishing’s Eerie magazine in the mid-1970s, featuring the elaborately detailed artwork of Mayo, plus Eerie’s original historical background feature.
• Cover painting by Sanjulian, frontispiece by Bernie Wrightson (Frankenstein)!
