Also I'm pretty sure they're on an upper level and Reed is standing on a fire escape.  In a suit, complete with handkerchief.  :smile:

Reed Richards was a dapper man!

He also looked quite angry the first several issues - like he would beat anyone to a pulp if they dared cross him.

Early Reed scared the *bleep* out of me.

I’m a big proponent of the idea of a bad @$$ Reed Richards. I hate when he’s drawn too old or scrawny! To my thinking, his physical prowess is vastly underestimated. First, he’s super strong. ( He regularly picks up all 800 pounds of Ben Grimm with one hand! ) Add to that, he’s very resistant to harm, and his leverage is unparalleled. 

Stretch-O is one of the most inventive thinkers in the MU. A guy that smart with an infinitely variable super power? 

Formidable.

Congratulations on that one! Not the easiest book in 9.0! Wish (hard!) that I could buy your undercopy!

Do you think #45 still has more room to grow in value?  I felt like I bought at the peak of its value and I'm not sure what to expect now that they've done a sub-par TV series with the Inhumans.

i figure it's dropped to where it belongs, and should have a slow, typical, climb.   s'tty t.v. show or not, it's still a great, great book.

a nice brown cover will save us from an ignominious slide onto page 2.

Wow, that's a nice book.  I have a nice-looking 8.0 if you ever wanted to trade down and walk away with a little $$$.  :wink:
