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?)
Circa 1973 - Defenders Vol.1 #8
Defenders!…eerrr…Defend!? In this classic issue on sale today, The Defenders manage to contact the imprisoned Black Knight, who is trapped in another dimension.

Kevin’s Picks of The Week (8/21/2013)
- PICK OF THE WEEK: Edison Rex #9: Things get Meta in this issue and I personally loved every minute of it. There’s even a few Guided ViewTM Native moments stuck in for good measure. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up, you won’t be disappointed.
- Daredevil #30: This self-contained story gives the Man Without Fear a taste of the Power Cosmic and a sweet one at that. If you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about with this series, this issue is just what you need to be reading.
- Bloodshot #0: Got to love a good secret origin story. Another self-contained single issue, this one shines a light on the Bloodshot project’s early days with an ending that is guaranteed to shock!
- Doc Unknown #2: This gem of an indie books is fresh from comiXology Submit, yes it’s another secret origin issue but the art is fun and the story top-notch. If you’ve been looking for something new, check out Doc Unknown.
Kevin tweets, tumbles and gives the occasional thumbs up across comiXology’s social media profiles. He sometimes dreams in sequential art.
