This gigantic, toe-crushing hardcover volume collects the entirety of the first thirty issues -- along with the first annual -- of "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine." Not only does this book provide you with all the material contained in the first three Fantastic Four Archive volumes for $50 less, it includes material NOT found in the archive editions such as the letters pages. AND The contents of FF #1, including the cover and all interior pages, have been newly restored for this volume. It runs 848 pages in total. Yes, the release of this volume is timed to shamelessly exploit the hype surrounding the release of the new Fantastic Four movie which will doubtless betray the greatness contained in these classic issues, but... who cares! This is a great opportunity to get these issues at a (copacetic) price that is less than the cost of buying 31 new FF comics at today's prices (31 x $2.99 = $92.69)! Think about it.
