#LongReads: Every Thursday Afternoon comiXology Unbound suggests a comic to read for those who are looking for something more than 22 pages!
Hmm… well this is a tall order. You can literally just buy compendiums of comic book knowledge, but if you really want to experience EVERYTHING you better have a lot of time on your hands, and the “best place” to start is pretty subjective.
IMHO, if you went through all the original FF by Lee & Kirby, you would be off to a good start.
Anyone else got a good rec for mooseintheheadlights here?
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.
