More About the Author

Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. Nevertheless: Having begun his career with wartime Timely Comics and staying the course throughout the Atlas era, Stan the Man made comic-book history with Fantastic Four #1, harbinger of a bold new perspective in story writing that endures to this day. With some of the industry's greatest artists, he introduced hero after hero in Incredible Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men and more -- forming a shared universe for rival publishers to measure themselves against. After an almost literal lifetime of writing and editing, Lee entered new entertainment fields and earned Marvel one opportunity after another. He remains one of Marvel's best-known public representatives.

It takes a team to produce a high quality comic book and Jack Kirby is the star of this team. Yes, the man needed an editor, but there was always Stan Lee, and probably et.al standing nearby. Kirby maintained his action packed art from issue 1 through 104. Maybe all the work is not as intense as #21 and 48-50, but volume 9 of the Marvel Masterworks represents another "marvelous" Kirby opus. Guest appearances by Dr. Doom, the Inhumans, the misunderstood Mole Man, and a bunch of really goofy gangsters. Purchase all ten of theFantastic Four Marvel Masterworks, if you can. Also a great buy for public libraries.

These were some of the best stories & art put out by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby. The reproduction is great. The colors look beautiful and the price is affordable. The paper seems a little thin, but acceptable. It's a good gift for kids in there pre-teens & for us adults who want to want to relive our childhood. Just remember these are comics, not literary classics.

I was very fortunate to grow up in the 60's during the Silver Age . I collected every title in Marvel except Sub Mariner , for one I enjpyed watching Kirby's art go from His early 60's art to what you se in this collection. Kirby was at His height , the detail and the FF4 was one is favorites . It starts off with a story with the Inhumans who were featured often in the FF4 since Johnny was dating Crystal who was filling in for Sue after having the Baby with the crazed Maximus as the bad guy . Then enter Dr. Doom, who captures the team an places them in a village brainwashed thinking they lost their powers . Stan Lee must of been a Fan of the TV show " the Prisoner " , because its slightly fashioned after the show.. Then in issue 90 when the Skull capture Ben an sell Him to a planet that is like 30's Earth ( another plot similar to one of Star Trek episode ). Each story is well written and Kirbys art was at His best with all His trademarks with details an the large panels and liked how He drew Reed , Sue , Johnny and Ben . In the 60's Silver Age art was more 3-D , People were drawn to look like People and Kirby was drawing FF4 and Captain America and Thor while Stan Lee wrote the stories for these books I never got to see what ever happened between Crystal and Johnny , She was a good addition to the group with Her elemental powers , but I started dating Girls an left comics behind Me , though I still have issue 90 but the covers gone . This is a good book to buy and if Your a Fan of FF4 and the Silver Age its a must to own , You have the InHumans , Dr.Doom and the Skulls , its a win-win

First of all, I will answer the question from another reviewer about what happened to Annual #7. That annual was all reprints except for the new cover by Jack Kirby and the photos of the Marvel Bullpen. This volume includes the aforementioned cover and photos but skips the reprints since they are already included in earlier volumes of the Masterworks series. My favorite story sequence here is the four-issue adventure set in Dr. Doom's kingdom of Latveria, which was inspired by the British TV series, "The Prisoner." We also have the uncanny Inhumans and the return of the FF's first villain, the Mole Man. By this point, Jack Kirby was doing virtually all of the plotting, with Stan Lee simply filling in the dialogue. Certainly nobody but Kirby could have dreamed up the planet Krall, which is populated by gangsters who look like they just stepped out of a Jimmy Cagney movie. Yes, it's a little silly, but you could get away with such things back in the good ol' Silver Age of comics. I have read all of these stories before, but they're still fun to read again after all these years.

I have loved the entire Fantastic Four Marvel Masterworks series so far. I never had the chance to read some of these great classics as they were too expensive. This volume is no different in that these contain some great tales except for Annual #7! It is listed on the back cover but was not included inside. I don't know if this was just my copy or if anyone else is missing this issue as well. I can't give this a low score just because one issue is missing. Every single story in this volume was great fun!
