Witness the bizarre first appearance of the planet-hungry Galactus in Kirby & Lee’s Fantastic Four #48.

Seriously… how weird is that 2nd page? The mixed-media? 

Also check out Galactus’s sweet christmas themed duds, keepin cool with those short sleeves. The outfit was immediately updated by the next issue, but the short sleeves stuck around for a little while. 

If you want more of classic Galactus, plus the first appearances of Black Bolt & The Inhumans, and the first superhero wedding issue starring Reed Richards and Sue Storm, you should check out Fantastic Four Masterworks vol. 5 to get it all in one place.
