"Stan "The Man" called it the "World's Greatest Comic Magazine," and he wasn't kidding. If Lee and Jack Kirby set the comics world on fire in 1961 with the debut of Fantastic Four, in 1965 they burnt it down. Letting loose an unmatched burst of rapid-fire creativity, they gave birth to the Frightful Four, the Inhumans, Galactus, the Silver Surfer and even pulled off the first super hero wedding. There's also monster menaces galore, including Dragon Man, and out-of-this-world villains, from the shape-shifting Skrulls to the undersea warlord Attuma. But it's not just the panel-bursting action that makes FF great. It's the drama of a family, joined together to face all the wonders of the Marvel Universe."--Back cover.
