PART FOUR OF KID'S KLASSIC KIRBY KOVERS - THE FABULOUS FF (WITH BONUS)...
Dunno about you, but I thought the four part tale contained within issues #90-93 was an absolute belter and a half! I seem to recall reading somewhere that it was a Star Trek episode in which the crew either go back in time, or land on a planet which bases their culture on 1930s America, that inspired Jack to dream up this plot. (Doesn't mean that Stan didn't contribute, Lee-haters, so down, boy!) In our previous post, we saw the covers to #84-87, and Jack purportedly was influenced by The Prisoner TV series when he dreamt that one up. Whatever would he have done without a TV, eh?
Anyway, if you've got a favourite cover within this lot, be sure to share which one (or ones) it is with your fellow Crivvies. You know how nosy we all are.
Bonus: In between Kirby abandoning the mag and Buscema taking over, John Romita drew four issues of the good ol' FF. I only have one original ish (though I have the others in a Masterworks volume), so I though I'd show it here. I must admit I bought my original copy of this number (the one below is a replacement) purely out of lust over the pic of Susie on the cover. Ah, young love. (Looks a bit like Paige Spiranac in the previous post, eh?)
