*Marvel: 1965’s Fantastic Four #45 saw the culmination of a long-running subplot – and the introduction of a whole new family of supporting super-stars. Since #36, the mysterious Madame Medusa had been a thorn in the side of the FF, and latterly, from #44, she had been pursued by the equally mysterious Gorgon. Now, the pair’s true origin, and their royal heritage, was revealed, as the monarchs of the Inhumans made their debut in these two issues. Black Bolt, Crystal, Triton, Karnak and Lockjaw rounded out the Royal Family tree, and became long-running allies of the Fantastic Four. New copies of both #45 and #46 in this week. #45 is VG+ p, with deep unmarred cover colour flexible cream interiors and very minor corner & edge wear, at £135. #46 (the first full Black Bolt, having teased us with a cameo in the preceding issue) is a similarly attractive VG+ p at £70. Neither has any significant marks or defects, but just minor wear concomitant with age.
