Review: Marvel Masterworks: The Fantastic Four, Vol. 2

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This second Fantastic Four volume of the Marvel Masterworks series has Jack Kirby hitting his stride on the book. The issues in this one feature the debut appearances of the Super Skrull, the Red Ghost and his Super Apes, Impossible Man, the Watcher, and the return of Doctor Doom, the Puppet Master and the Sub-Mariner.

The late Dick Ayers handles the inks on nine of the issues, with the remaining one, the introduction of the Red Ghost, being inked by Steve Ditko. This is one of those “can’t fail” books.

The single qualm I have with it is that the colorist screwed up the Impossible Man’s outfit. Other than that, this is a great read for anyone, comic fan or not!
