World-shattering events, cosmic calamities, and Kirby Krackle--does it get any better?
Jack Kirby is one of the most important creators in the history of comics, and the Fantastic Four is one of his greatest achievements. First published in 1961, the adventures of Mister Fantastic, the Human Torch, the Invisible Girl, and the ever-lovin' Thing introduced a bold new era in comics. Kirby's dynamic storytelling, coupled with Stan Lee's poignant writing style, were unlike anything comic book readers had seen before--it literally ushered in THE MARVEL AGE OF COMICS!
Including Fantastic Four Annual #6, the 48-page groundbreaking story that featured the birth of Franklin Richards! Also presenting issues #71, #82, #83, and #84, featuring the Inhumans, Doctor Doom, and others--plus a beautiful gallery section of some of Kirby's most incredible pages, all scanned from the original art!
Like all of IDW's award-winning Artist Edition style books, each page has been painstakingly scanned from the original art to ensure the finest possible reproduction, mimicking the experience of seeing Kirby's hand-drawn pages--it's the next best thing owning the art! While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art--for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique.
