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.
Circa 1966: Fantastic Four #48
The coming of Galactus! The first appearance of Norrin Radd! Uatu looking really buff! And Black Bolt being a total BAMF! This classic comic by the legendary team of Lee & Kirby is finally available on comiXology.
(Also, can we talk about how fabulous Uatu’s shoe’s look on the cover?)
