Description

Here are the very first appearances of so many epic Marvel characters: Doctor Doom, the Mole Man, The Skrulls, The Puppet Master, The Mad Thinker…Plus, the first Silver Age appearance of The Sub Mariner, who quickly teams up with Doctor Doom, and both characters return for second appearances within this 18-issue run. And the FF’s origin, of course!

Bonus material: Stan’s two page synopsis of the FF’s origin story in #1; b&w original art for the covers of #1 and 2, plus an unused cover for #3!!! Costume emblem design sketches by Stan himself; original art for pages from #3 and #5, and the cover to #11, a page from #14, FF “Feature Page” from #16, an unused story page from either #17 or #23, inked as a try-out page by an unknown inker, a house ad for FF #1 from Incredible Hulk #1, another for FF #5 from Hulk #2, a listing of FF fan clubs with addresses from 1963, and more cool FF house ads for other early books.

In 1961, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby lit the fuse of the greatest revolution in comic-book history — the Marvel Age of Comics — and it started right here, in the pages of Fantastic Four! With the space race on, Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, Sue Storm and Johnny Storm shoot for the stars — but after their craft is bombarded by cosmic rays, they return to Earth with the startling powers of the Fantastic Four!

These weren’t just any super heroes, though — the Fantastic Four were a realistic, relatable, bickering and loveable family that couldn’t pay their rent and didn’t always love their powers. So crack open this Epic Collection and enjoy the beginning of the series that earned the name “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine!”

Also featuring work by Joe Sinnott, Steve Ditko, George Klein, Sol Brodsky and Dick Ayers, all inking Kirby’s pencils.
