Review: Marvel Masterworks: The Fantastic Four, Vol. 5

Marvel Masterworks: The Fantastic Four, Vol. 5 by Stan Lee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This one is pretty much Jack Kirby at the height of his abilities, and features some magnificent character debuts! This collection of “the World’s Greatest Comic Magazine” has the first tales of both the Inhumans and the Silver Surfer and Galactus. The stories are intertwined and continued in a way that’s rare to see even today, plot threads all over the place, but resolved nicely when it matters.

A proper Fantastic Four collector really needs only the first five volumes of the Marvel Masterworks series (I would normally have added the sixth, but the poor reproduction values reported on that one make me leery of including it) to have the heart and soul of the series and the FF.
