The comics themselves are sure awesomeness. Really great, going through first adventures of the Four, and also finding out what comics were like all those years ago, before we all took them waay too seriously. It wold be perfect if not for the format. OK, the quality of the reprint is outstanding, they definitely pulled out the stops in getting the original color on glossy paper, considering that wasn't the kind of paper it was originally intended for. I have slight gripes in that here isn't much in terms of additional material, just a short intro from The Man Stan Lee. Some foreword from an industry expert explaining why the comics where good would have been great. Actually, I totally see space there for several articles, like maybe something about the era it was made, what the comics industry was like, the collectible value, Kirby and Lee's story... even just one of these stories would have been great. They're now publishing a F4 Omnibus, issues 1-100 and first Annual. Still no extras, but what the heck.

The Fantastic Four remind me of what people once thought were the four main elements. Johnny is Fire, obviously. Ben is Earth, because he is covered in stone that looks like it was from the ground and bears the strength and near invincibility of the earth. Susan is Air, because she manipulate things with invisible forces like those of the mighty winds and turn herself clear as air. And, last, but not least, Reed is Water because he can alter his body to fit any necessary situation or environment, just like water.

This is a great idea of Marvel--to release these Masterwork titles in paperback. Yes, some of them, like the FF have pretty crude artwork by today's standards, but they still pack more story into one issue than any 3 issues today. If you want to see how Marvel and the superhero revolution of the 60's, these books are a must.

This book is a must for any fan of The Fantastic Four's golden age! It has the first 10 comics published of the crimefighting foursome and they are great! Mr. Fantastic streches his way into battle. The Human Torch burns evil. Invisible Girl tackles the baddies and The Thing well, just don't get in his way! I think it is excellent that Barnes and Noble has this wonderful collection. It will defitnetly please all. Its simply FANTASTIC!
