Some of the most important FF stories ever can be found within these pages. Issues #41-43 see the return of The Frighful Four who are now The Frightful Five with the addition of a brainwashed Thing. Madame Medusa provides the link between that story and the next, the introduction of The Inhumans in issues #44-48 and, leaving them trapped in their Great Refuge, the FF return to NYC for the "Galactus Trilogy" in issues #48-50.Who could forget the Silver Surfer's first taste of Earth - a kinghit from the Thing?The creative force here is Jack Kirby with Stan Lee taking a writing credit he didn't fully deserve.Included in this collection is the third FF annual featuring the wedding of Reed and Sue. Unlike the previous 2 annuals this one is more gimmicky than anything else with a hodgepodge of Marvel heroes and villains making cameo appearances.
