Talk about mind-expanding – you’ll have to make room in your brain to be able to absorb all the information contained in this single, slim – but giant-sized – volume by Tom Scioli. The Fantastic Four mythos was created over a full decade by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee and is seen by many – including many a Copacetic comrade – as embodying the greatest achievement of the Marvel Age of comics as well as the fullest expression of the Kirby-Lee team/partnership/collaboration. It truly was “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine.” (although we’d say it was the The World’s Greatest Comics Magazine). Scioli pours out this mythos at firehose strength in a a relentless onslaught of panel-packed pages. It’s Clobberin’ Time, indeed. Not only does he layout the FF mythos here, but he works to seamlessly integrate it into the overall flow of the Marvel Universe as to reveal the truly Grand Design of Jack Kirby’s vision that lies at its core, bringing together The Watcher, Galactus, The Eternals, The Inhumans and Deviants, Devil Dinosaur, the Kree and more – even Steve Ditko's corollary creation, Eternity. It’s all here. This massive oversize Treasury Edition collects the entirety of the two-issue series along with all the variant covers, plus sketches, roughs, a couple of essays by Daron Jensen, and the added extra bonus of a Treasury Edition sized reprint of the complete Fantastic Four #51 – in PiskorColor™. ‘Nuff said.
