Picked up a nice copy, about a 6.5-7.0 of Fantastic Four #75.  Part of the classic Lee/Kirby run on FF, which I consider to be the finest in Marvel’s canon, both from sheer creativity and longevity.

Frightful Four!

These guys were always cool….kinda the anti-FF. Somehow, of course, Reed and the gang would always figure out a way to defeat them.

One of my favs that I still own…FF #112  15 cent cover price from 1971.  Hard to find in top grade, since the black cover shows stress marks very well.  I would estimate my copy as Very Fine, probably about a 7.5.  I’ve seen comparable copies on ebay going for about $180.  A 9.6 was on there for $1750.  Doubt they will ever get that for it, but who knows? Perfectly happy with my copy!  I always like the Hulk/thing battles…Benji usually got the worst of it, but I rooted for him anyway.

I was thinking about the best comic story arcs that I remember.  Of course, a lot of these sprout from my early adolescence, but many of them hold up fairly well today (even in the age of the bloodthirsty, take-no-prisoners antihero).

Sure, there’s a ton out there, but here’s some off the top of my head:

The death of Gwen Stacey in Amazing Spider-Man.

Thor being defeated by Hercules and then rescuing him from the Underworld.

The “coming of the Over-Mind” storyline from FF.

The Kree-Skrull war storyline from Avengers.

Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The Trial of the Flash.

Don McGregor’s Black Panther/Killmonger run.

Sure, there’s a bazillion different storylines out there.  These are just some that come to mind.  All of them had the hallmark of a great serial, anxiously waiting for the next installment.
