*Marvel: While the first couple of issues of the Fantastic Four were an unqualified success, it wasn’t until the third issue that the team’s rough edges were smoothed out, and they became the familiar First Family we know and love. Issue #3, in addition to the menace of the Miracle Man (no, not that Miracle Man), had the team in costume for the first time, and the debut of their unique transportation the Fantasti-Car (aka ‘The Flying Bathtub’), as well as showing the readers in detail the team’s Baxter Building headquarters. With this issue, all the foundation for the FF’s future of high adventure and exploration were in place. Our newly-acquired FF #3 is a GD/VG cents copy, with only very minor ‘Marvel chipping’ at the cover’s edge precluding a higher grade. On sale at £390.
