To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This has Jack Kirby's last few issues of FF, which are rather half-hearted and very constrained by the start-and-finish-the-story-in-one-issue policy that Marvel briefly and foolishly adopted at that time. The John Romita issues that follow are dire, and the Buscema issues, whilst an improvement, are far from that artist's best (and not as good as Kirby's worst, in my opinion).
Although the book is full of Jack's last run of issues for Marvel before he moved to DC, it's stll full on Jack Kirby. The years go by and the writers an artists, as good as they are, who followed him still appreciate what he created. Good for them I say.
Sou suspeito para falar de material clássico do Quarteto, sou fã é faço questão de ter isso na coleção, ainda mais em formato oversize que valoriza a arte do quadrinho. Uma pena a Panini não ter apostado em uma coleção definitiva.
It's a great compilation of some of the best Fantastic Four stories, with the characters well developed by this time in the series. My complaint is it came in a box that was oversized and had no appropriate filler, so it was obviously jostled in transit. When you're buying a collectible like this, some care should be given to keeping it pristine. I will say I also ordered FF Omnibus Vol 3 and it was properly packaged.
Beautiful edition, quality on par with previous books in the series.
This is a unique and under appreciated period of FF history. After Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s epic, history-making 100-plus issue run on FF, their personal relationship was beginning to sour. Jack, the idea man, was starting to hold back his best ideas and soon left for competitor DC Comics (where he created his flawed late career masterpiece, the Fourth World). Marvel, desperate to maintain its flagship series, brought in their best artists (John Buscema, John Romita) to do their best Kirby imitation. The results are beautiful, highly polished eye candy inked elegantly by Joe Sinnott. The quality of stories actually improves a bit after Kirby’s departure.
