So I decided that I would never end up justifying the price to buy an amazing Spider-Man 1 and the 12 issues I was missing to complete my run having already owned amazing fantasy 15 and leaning towards key collector vs run collector. I love me some marvel villains....and decided with the money I got from selling my non-key Spider-Man issues I would go for this low grade well loved key now on its way from mycomicshop. 

Someday I’ll upgrade this but at least I’m in the club now. So if he goes into mcu I won’t be out of a chance of getting one completely. 

I now have Magneto, Green Goblin, Thanos, Dr. Doom and next target will be Galactus in ff49 to round out my top 5 favorite villains.

Great comic!

Just out of curiosity, why FF 49 for Galactus and not 48? Just prefer the cover?

Yes love that 49 cover much more and to me 1st full and 1st cover is better than 1st cameo. If I was going for surfer it would be 48 but I like the villains.

I can’t call Galactus’ appearance in 48 a cameo. Nearly the entire issue revolves around him. 

But, while I flat-out love FF 48’s cover, can’t argue that 49 is even better!

I do, too. 

That issue was the first FF my comic mentor bought off the stands. I gave him a great presenting 9.0 for X-Mas a few years back. White, but not so white as yours.
