Jack Kirby was a genius who first became a star in the early forties partnering with Joe Simon on Captain America, Boy Commandos, the Newsboy Legion, the Sandman, and Manhunter, but then World War Two happened, sending the dream team to war, breaking up their partnership, and derailing the best team in comics. After the war, Joe Simon found his second success elsewhere, but Fantastic Four was the book that returned Jack Kirby to the top. With Stan Lee along as a "writer" who really only did the same work that DC typically credited as "editorial" work (plot suggestions, dialogue tweaks in post-production, etc.), Jack Kirby took a couple of months to find his groove, but then it was "Katie bar the door"!
The lack of proper credit notwithstanding, I do love this little pocket book, and also the similar volumes featuring Steve Ditko's Spider-Man, because they were the books that first allowed me to read these classic tales. I still have them today, though not the originals I owned back in the day (those finally fell apart after thousands of readings).
Actually, if these books have a real flaw, beyond the fact that Kirby isn't getting the credit that is his, it's that you have to watch the binding a bit. They do fall apart if you aren't gentle with them. But it's a comic book, so you're supposed to be gentle! Treat this one like it's your child, and it will reward you greatly!
