I’ve been a fairly serious collector for more than three decades, and the best thing I ever did in the hobby is complete Fantastic Four. 

Keep at it, Brother!

Thanks! I had a pretty good FF collection with some kirbys here and there but lost them moving in like 2004.  I've only been rebuilding since this November and only have a handful to go which is way more than I initially had.  I think I'll buy the rest of the issues up until 416.   But the kirby issues are my absolute fave. I need to find a way to display them, I love every cover!

I’ve be reading issues towards the end of Jack Kirby’s run recently. Even as a youngun, I usually tried to buy the best copy I could find, like this #89. Sometimes though I’d settle for lower grade copies that I’d now like to upgrade. Books i don’t already own are a bigger priority, though.

I don’t display comics, but I had to see every cover on my comic room wall.

It’s really fun, and it was super-cheap on eBay. I looked for it just now there and on Amazon; zilch.

While not a key, this is one of my personal  favorite late Kirby  books.  U.S.  Mexican, Pence, and Weekly versions of the same book.  I love that the La Prensa shows more of the Thing.  and the Weekly alternate view/ cover is awesome as well.
