A Year of Cool Comics – Day 314

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!

Today we look at the classic “Doctor Doom gains the Power Cosmic” storyline from Fantastic Four #57-60 by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.

Enjoy!

First off, like all great Fantastic Four arcs of the time, the storyline kicked off while the FF were in the middle of another story. Here, it is a fight with the Frightful Four…


I love how it is “Enter…Doctor Doom” and then, “Oh yeah, Sandman’s here, too!”

So anyhow, the Silver Surfer (who is not a happy camper since he is stuck on Earth) is invited to Latveria by Doctor Doom…


This, of course, leads to the utterly legendary sequence where Doctor Doom steals the power cosmic from Silver Surfer…




Man, the image of Doom flying Surfer’s surfboard on this next page…


EPIC KIRBY!!!

Lee and Kirby set the situation beautifully with Fantastic Four #58’s cliffhanger ending…



And this only takes you to HALFWAY through the story! This does not even count the Inhumans’ role in the story!! This is great stuff.
