By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on February 10, 2004
Format: Hardcover
With the Marvel Masterworks series getting serious about reprinting issues of "The Fantastic Four," which is "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" (by its own admission), the time has finally come to make an argument at what point in the run this was, for a time, most definitely true. "Marvel Masterworks: Fantastic Four, Volume 4" includes issues #31-40 (plus Annual #2) and I want to place in nomination issue #39, "A Blind Man Shall Lead Them" as the point where the F.F. entered 5 star territory for what would be pretty much the next two years of the comic.
Up to that point things are pretty much run of the mill: #31 "The Mad Menace ofthe Macabre Mole Man" brings pack the group's first villain and throws in the Avengers along with Sue and Johnny's father; #32 "Death of a Hero" has the Skrulls turning Dr. Franklin Storm into a living booby trap; #33 "Side-by-Side with Sub-Mariner" has the F.F. helping Namor against the armies of Attuma; #34 "A House Divided" has the mysterious and very rich Mr. Gideon getting the F.F. to fight each other; #34 "Calamity on the Campus" introduces the Dragon Man, who is brought to life by Diablo on the campus of E.S.U. (where Charles Xavier's students and Peter Parker are also visiting); #36 "The Frightful Four" introduces the evil quartet of the Wizard, the Sandman, Medusa and Paste-Pot Pete (sorry, I never could buy that last one); #37 "Behold! A Distant Star" has a minor adventure as Reed and Sue try to get ready for their wedding rehersal; #38 "Defeated by the Frightful Four" actually comes true, as Paste-Pot Pete changes his name to the Trapster.

Another excellent masterworks, with the last of the wonderful Jack Kirby/Chic Stone collaborations on Fantastic Four. Really, all you need to encompass the true greatness of the "World's Greatest Comic Magazine" is the first five Marvel Masterworks (I'd have included the sixth if the reproduction was a lot better on it, but alas, it apparently is horrid).

Dragon Man makes his first appearance here, along with the Frightful Four, along with the returns of Dr. Doom, the Sub-Mariner and the Mole Man, along with a Wally Wood-inked guest-appeared by Daredevil. It's hard to go wrong with this book if you're a fan of good, old-fashioned proper comic books.

Featuring Fantastic Four Annual #2 (Dr. Doom) and issues #31 - #40. It has some of the best set up storylines for later issues (Vols 5 - 7). Along with giving Dr. Doom more reason to hate the F.F., it also introduces the Frightful Four. And then there's Ben Grimm. One of the most tragic figures in comics who still doesn't catch a break, even when one seems to appears before him. Reprints include the well liked "Calamity on Campus" and "Side by Side With Sub-Mariner": Great stand alone issues. When first published during the 60's, I read them out of sequence and the stories were still fabulous. If you've never read the early F.F. issues, this compilation should give you a thrill.
