Marvel Masterworks: Luke Cage, Hero for Hire (2015) – TPB vol. 01

Synopsis:

Luke Cage burst onto the comics scene in 1972 as the “Hero for Hire.” Equal parts Marvel Method and Blaxploitation boldness, he was a new kind of hero for a new era. Now, the Marvel Masterworks proudly present the complete Luke Cage, Hero for Hire — the historic first title to headline an African-American super hero — in one hardcover volume! Cage’s adventures depicted New York City’s 1970s grit and the plight of its people unlike any other, all while incorporating larger-than-life villains including Black Mariah and Doctor Doom.
