origin of Fantastic Four; Spider-Man cover; origin of Sub-Mariner & 1st SA app. Atlantis
Expanding the Marvel Universe bit by bit, this annual featured the retelling of the FF origin and the deepening of the tug-of-war between the imperious Prince Namor and our surface-dwelling heroes. Whether this appearance was meant to build interest in the Spider-Man title, or meant to draw Spider readers into the Fantastic Four orbit isn't certain, but it's one more example of Lee and Kirby's determination to create a bustling, big world for their new heroes to play in, and for readers to become addicted to.


Artists Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.

Richard "Dick" Ayers was an American comic book artist and cartoonist best known for his work as one of the main inkers during the late-1950's and 1960's Silver Age of Comics, including some of the earliest issues of Marvel Comics' including Jack Kirby's The Fantastic Four. He is the signature penciler of Marvel's World War II comic Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos, drawing it for a 10-year run, and he co-created Magazine Enterprises' 1950s Western-horror character the Ghost Rider, a version of which he would draw for Marvel in the 1960s. His career would span 7 decades until his death in 2014.
