Fantastic Four Comic Stuff

The 1961 premere of this self-proclaimed : World’s Greatest Comic Magazine” ushered in the Marvel Age of Comics. It all starts when Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm take part in a space launch. Everything goes perfectly until they are bombarded with cosmic rays. Their inadequately shielded spaceship does not protect them, and suddenly the four find themselves altered by the radiation. Reed’s body becomes elastic ; Susan finds herself able to turn invisible at will ; Ben becomes mutated into a the scaled-rock skined Thing ; and Johnny becomes a Human Torch. Together, they become The Fantastic Four. In the decades that followed, The FF has saved the world more times than can be counted and introduced readers to such legendary characters as The Inhumans, The Silver Surfer, Galactus, Doctor Doom and The Frightful Four. They’re Marvel’s longest-running team and a pivotal force in the Marvel Universe.
The issues that followed would be remembered as Marvel classics. Here is an opportunity to own an affordable, super investment grade copy of these early Marvel “classics”, with only the most minor of imperfections allowable in this grade.
