RECOMMENDED READING - FANTASTIC FOUR OMNIBUS VOLUME THREE...
Here's the latest addition to my OMNIBUS collection -
the third volume of The FANTASTIC FOUR, containing #s
61-93 and Annuals 5-7. Normally, I go for volumes featuring an
original JACK KIRBY cover, but they were sold out, so I had
to 'settle' for an ALEX ROSS alternate cover instead. (I'll
probably acquire a Kirby dustjacket at a later date.)
This volume reprints the four-part classic tale where The
SKRULLS capture Ben Grimm, The THING, and take him
to a planet modelled after the roaring 1920s & '30s in the USA
during the period of Prohibition to fight in 'The Great Games'.
This was the last continued adventure under the helm of Kirby
and STAN LEE, the remainder of their run consisting of
single ish stories until Jack's final issue, #102.
Mighty Marvel Magic at its bombastic best!
