(W/A) John Byrne & Various (CA) John Byrne
The Fantastic Four is going back to basics - and back to Byrne! The Marvel Masterworks are proud to present the debut of John Byrne in his celebrated run as FF writer/artist. Byrne's deft balance - renewing the characters' cores, revitalizing old foes and introducing new concepts - brought the FF a bold vitality. Marvel's First Family returned to the lofty heights of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby! In fact, the Lee/Kirby contribution to the FF's twentieth anniversary is one of the many treats this volume has in store. Also included are an Annual by Steve Ditko, the FF Roast and a treasure trove of bonus material! Restored from extensive scans of original artwork, this is the definitive edition of one of Marvel's true classics! Collecting FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #232-240 and ANNUAL #16 and FANTASTIC FOUR ROAST.
