    While an excellent, excellent story with beautiful Esad Ribic art, that's an alternate reality Namor story that actually features very little of that alt-Namor on panel.

    Check out Crushing Krisis blog post on Namor collections: https://crushingkrisis.com/crushing-...raphic-novels/

    An incomplete list from the Namor Appreciation thread with additions by me.


    Personal recommendation, if you don't mind an late 80s, early 90s comic, this book gives a great overview of Namor. Of course, you'll be surprised when you compare him to the modern portrayals of the character.

    Sub-Mariner and Original Human Torch: feature Saga of the Sub-Mariner - A 12 issue miniseries that is an autobiography of Namor's life from birth to 1990 (right before John Bryne's Namor book) written by Roy Thomas with art by Bob McLeod.



    These are all the collected editions of Namor's solo books:

    well I was going to suggest Sub-Mariner: Revolution and some golden age stories mixed with early Fantastic Four comics, but Reviresco appears to have you covered
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Sub-Mariner Revolution (2007) is a good modern introduction to Namor, though as an old school Namor fan, I had to disagree with some things. However, I think more of the modern appearances draw from this rather ruthless take on Namor.

    The early FF appearances are all in that first FF Omnibus, I believe -- and they are classic FF and Namor. But not everyone is up for Silver Age comics, or the price of an omnibus. But now that I think on it, that graphic novel, Fantastic Four Season One, sort of updates the original stories, is about Namor's revival, so I would recommend that for people that don't like Silver Age books. Though as an old school fan, I don't see how one can't love Namor as a movie mogul. ;p

    If you have a problem with Silver Age books, you probably aren't going to like any of the Golden Age stuff. But if you want to try something, I would suggest Marvel Masterworks Atlas Heroes v3. It is the 1950s Bill Everett stories, and they are gorgeous -- much better than the art of the 1940s. Plus, there are Young Namor stories.

    My own personal favorites are the Silver / Bronze Age Namor solo that are reprinted in the Marvel Masterworks.
