That cover has such a goofy looking monster of a villain that it reminds me of some of the early SA Detective and Atlas monster covers for goofiness.  Yet still, Kirby infuses the cover with cosmic awesomeness with the background of entire planets and our very solar system being jeopardized by the silly looking monster.

By the way, this was another Lee/Kirby concept that was liberally copied by the original Star Trek a few years later in the episode "Squire Of Gothos": a super-powerful and potentially hugely destructive alien, who it turns out is just a young child of an alien up to hijinks and mischief.

FF #24 is probably also at the top of the list of covers that you think might have terrible chipping until you realize all those black areas along the top edge are part of the art.

Great copy by the way.  (thumbsu

Don't think I ever posted this one?  Picked it up here on the boards not long ago.

BTW, sweet books everyone!  Love them all...
