the holy grail of classic golden age covers! A Lou Fine masterpiece (2/40)
Well. So here it is. The single most coveted, most revered, most gloriously insane and delightfully over-the-top cover of the Golden Age by one of the finest artists ever to grace the medium. There's barely any point in discussing or writing about this splendid beast, but I guess we'll have to try, otherwise this listing will have to be filled up with recipes and emojis. So, where do we even begin? Maybe what's worth discussing is how immaculately this extraordinary image captures everything about the twilight, otherworldly realm of early 20th century pop fiction, how it manages to perfectly meld Burroughsian adventure, pulp science fiction, monster horror, boys' own action, and epic imagination into one astoundingly illustrated piece.

The intricate lines laid down by Lou Fine, indisputably the first truly great cover artist of the comics, provide supple weight and graceful movement to what could otherwise be a crude and garish image, giving the robots a fierce metal menace reminiscent of Willis O'Brien's majestic King Kong, and the immense motion of Samson at center rivals the heft of Hal Foster's Tarzan, all taking place in a backdrop that practically screams of detailed modelwork by an unusually talented boy. This image burned its way into the brains of all the young readers who first saw it, and has branded itself on the hearts of comic collectors young and old for nearly a century. This issue may not be a key, a first appearance, or the inspiration for a big blockbuster movie, but for truly discerning collectors, there is nothing else. This is the Big One, the Grail, the Monster. It never fails to delight and inspire, and has yet to be rivalled. So.

Kirby cvr/art; first costumes & established headquarters
This is not the first issue of the Fantastic Four, but it is an issue filled to the brim with firsts. This issue marks the first appearance of the FF's costumes, which can turn invisible, stretch to incredible lengths, resist powerful flames, and allow Ben Grimm a relaxing day at the beach. This issue also debuts the location of the super-team's headquarters, the design of their Fantasti-car, and even features the first time Stan Lee refers to the series as "The Greatest Comic Magazine in the World". Notably, this issue is also the first to feature an FF fan mail section, the first step in Lee's creation of the Mighty Marvel Fan Base. The vintage Jack Kirby cover design uses the sharp, stark grays of the New York City skyline to highlight the bright reds of Johnny Blaze's flames and the pristine white of the brand new Fantasti-car.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st SA Sub-Mariner
In the spirit of recycling, both DC and Marvel dusted off and rethought their classic Golden Age characters in the rough-and-tumble marketplace of the early Silver Age, including one of the most intriguing and unusual of all Timely creations, the fearsome Sub-Mariner. While the Golden Age Namor was a pulpy, tortured anti-hero, the Silver Age Namor was more aggressively antagonistic, with his antipathy the FF exacerbated by his longing for the fetching Sue Storm. In this first Silver Age appearance of this distinctive character, Lee and Kirby ratchet up the action and drama to a hyperbolic degree, firmly establishing this series as one of the most gloriously inventive of all Silver Age Marvel titles.

origin and 1st app. Doctor Doom; bondage cover (7/62)
Doom, according to Jack "The King" Kirby, was modeled after the Middle Age's envisioning of Death, hence the hood. Kirby claims that Doom, a genius inventor, sorcerer, and leader of Latveria, is inherently evil. As a result of his facial disfigurement and hatred for Reed Richards, he lashes out against the world in perpetual vengeance. He is one of the greatest and most complex villains ever created in the world of comics and he first appears here in Fantastic Four # 5. Created by the team of Kirby and Stan "The Man" Lee, this character has been copied and imitated many times over the last fifty years, most notably as the inspiration for Darth Vader.

Kirby cvr/art; 3rd SA Sub-Mariner app.
It's typical of the hard-bitten, cynical world of Silver Age Marvel to show the heroes right on the cover of their own book being turned out of their digs and jeered by crowds. It's also a sign of the clever way Stan Lee and Jack Kirby could turn everyday drabness into imaginative gold, almost as though they were thinking big by going small. It had certainly had never been tried before, so readers were turned on by the originality and audacity of Marvel's ideas, and stuck around for the strong storytelling and attention-grabbing art. This is only the third appearance of the Sub-Mariner in the Silver Age, and Lee and Kirby have already transformed him completely from a brooding romantic demigod into a snarling, almost completely adversarial despot. Readers loved it.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st Hulk vs Thing battle
A match made in adolescent boy heaven, it was only a matter of time before Lee and Kirby took their two most popular creations and set them against each other to see what would happen. The result, unsurprisingly, was a smash success, leading to nearly annual throwdowns between the two misunderstood behemoths. This first contretemps occured while the nascent Hulk was still in his initial, reasonably intelligent phase, making him an even more formidable opponent for the streetwise scrapping Thing. The reduction of the green goliath in later years to a monosyllabic brute made the recurring battles less and less challenging and more like a standard-issue monster mash, but this classic first meeting still retains its punch and excitement, and fans young and old still feel the old tingle when encountering this classic image.

Kirby cvr; classic Kirby/Ditko art; 1st Watcher
An unusual treat awaited readers within the pages of this issue, as the lively, kinetic inks of Steve Ditko met the ferocious, muscular figures and layouts of Jack "The King" Kirby. In addition, Lee and Kirby once again upped the ante on strange goings-on by introducing the Watcher, one of the most intriguing meta-creations of the Marvel Silver Age, whose influence over the series' galactic ambitions would only increase as time went on and would lead directly to the legendary Galactus /Surfer saga of later years. For some reason, this is one of the scarcer early FF issues, especially in nice condition.

Kirby cvr/art; classic Hulk vs. Thing cover; 2nd SA Captain America app. (cameo)
Never let it be said that Marvel wouldn't give the people what they wanted. It's understandable that young readers would instantly gravitate to the two misshapen beasts starring on this cover. The Hulk is a perfect personification of the uncontrollable rage, emotional turmoil, and alienation felt by any growing boy fighting through hormones and the general pains of childhood, while the Thing appealed to any kid whose own body seemed to be clumsily betraying them through the pains and troubles of growing up. Pit these two beasts against each other and you're guaranteed to sell out on day one, as Marvel happily discovered and continued to exploit throughout the Silver and Bronze Age, almost annually. Here, the showdowns had not yet exhausted their potential, and you can still feel the joy of inventiveness and novelty bursting forth in Kirby's typically epic cover image.

Kirby cvr/art; early X-Men x-over (7/64)
Where once the Fantastic Four had been used to shore up interest in the inaugural issue of Amazing Spider-Man, now the X-Men were being drafted into the FF title itself to help push them on Marvel fans who might not have seen their mag. This early X-Men appearance also allowed for Jack Kirby to show off his dizzying ability to maneuver massive casts of characters through bizarre settings and situations without ever once losing the plot or the audience's patience. The gambit must have worked, as the X-Men slowly built up a loyal cult following that continued through to their eventual break-through success in the Bronze era.
