*Marvel: In issue #28 of the FF, the X-Men guest-starred in a packed issue with the menaces of the Mad Thinker & his Awesome Android and the Puppet Master. As is usually the case in these early crossovers, the two teams are pitted against each other as a result of the villains’ machinations. Kirby managed to fit all members of both teams plus the Awesome Android on to the cover without it looking overcrowded. This is a superb pence printed copy, the nicest we’ve ever seen of this issue. The cover is fresh and totally unmarked with a white background and vivid colour, the spine is completely intact, the staples are tight and firmly attached, the corners square with just the faintest hint of blunting. Pages are superb, off-white to white. No creases, no chipping, virtually no discernable wear. This copy would be a joy to own! High resolution images are available on request.
