KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - FANTASTIC #89...
You're looking at the end of an era - the very last issue of
FANTASTIC, published in October 1968. A week later, the
name appeared in tiny form as part of the masthead of SMASH!,
which 'incorporated' its former sister publication from that point
on. Around five months later, Smash! was revamped and the re-
maining Marvel content vanished - along with the name Fantastic
from the cover. Short-lived it may have been, but the comic
had certainly lived up to its name.
(Incidentally, that's not the real MANDARIN on the
cover - it's JIMMY HILL done up to look like him.)
