Man, I loved this book when I was young. I loved the cover. I loved how many stories were inside. I loved reading the “old” stories along with the “new” ones. One of the first trade paperback comic collections, this great book reprinted Fantastic Four #1 and #55, Incredible Hulk #1 and #118, Amazing Fantasy #15 (first Spider-man) and Amazing Spiderman #72, Journey into Mystery #83 (first Thor) and Thor #143, and Strange Tales #110, #115 and #155. (I’m pretty sure this was my first introduction to Dr. Strange.)
