Welcome back! Couldn't keep away, could you? And who can
possibly blame you when there's some classic comicbook art by both
JOHN BUSCEMA and JACK KIRBY on display. THE COMPLETE
FANTASTIC FOUR was a terrific MARVEL U.K. weekly periodical
which filled us in on the then-relatively recent adventures of the Fab
Four (no, Melvin, not THE BEATLES) , plus super classic stories
from the early '60s. Who could ask for more for a mere 10 pence?
I suppose it's a shame that all these titanic tales weren't in colour,
but British readers were used to the majority of their regular weeklies
being mainly in black and white. On the plus side (as I noted last time),
Marvel had finally managed to master the use of ZIPATONE (that's the
U.S. equivalent of LETRASET) so that the grey tones didn't obscure
the detail on the art, as had once been the case with previous titles.
Anyway, that's enough waffle from me. I now unleash upon you
highlights from another three issues of The Complete Fantastic Four.
More CFF still to come, frantic ones - be sure not to miss them!
