KID'S KLASSIC (KIRBY) KOMIC KOVERS - FANTASTIC FOUR #7...
I suppose this one can be considered an unusual cover, in that
The FANTASTIC FOUR don't actually appear on it 'in person' -
only on a poster bearing their images. This yarn has long-been one
of my favourite FF tales, first read in the pages of WHAM!, then later
in an issue of MARVEL COLLECTORS' ITEM CLASSICS. Readers
were perhaps a tad confused by the ending of the original ish #7, as Mr.
FANTASTIC says "There was no reducing gas, Sue!", thus making
the preceding events entirely impossible. What he should have said
was "There was no enlarging gas, Sue!", which it was amended
to in later reprints. Current editions of Marvel Masterworks
and Omnibus volumes carry the original error, for the
purpose of maintaing archival integrity.
