CRIVEN'S CLASSIC COMIC COVERS: FANTASTIC #51...
I recall lying on the living-room carpet scrutinising this cover
back in 1968, and that's where I find myself in memory whenever I
look at it today. Many years later I acquired the original U.S. issue of
JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY (#119) it first adorned, but somehow
that comic mag doesn't have quite the same nostalgic appeal as the one
above, probably because this is the issue I associate with my childhood.
This was quite a momentous number of FANTASTIC, as it was the
last one in which JOHNNY FUTURE appeared. The very next
week, TERRIFIC was merged into Fantastic, so this was also
the last edition to feature the comic's name on its own.
