Marvel’s Greatest Comics

    (Marvel, 1969-1981)
™ and ©1973 Marvel Entertainment Group

Marvel’s Greatest Comics is a continuation of Marvel Collectors’ Item Classics, with the name changing as of issue #23. The series ran from 1969 until 1981 when it concluded with issue #96. In that time, it reprinted some of the most colorful and important issues of Fantastic Four. These included the first appearance of the Silver Surfer, Galactus, and the Inhumans. Illustrated by the great Jack Kirby and written by Stan “the Man” Lee, there was a feeling of wonder about these early issues that has not been matched since.
