Lost Issue of FANTASTIC FOUR to be published!
Alert reader Paul M. sent me THIS article from the Seattle Times...
At the recent San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said Marvel will release the last "Fantastic Four" collaboration by Lee and Kirby in the spring.
The story was intended for the 102nd issue of "Fantastic Four" in 1970, during a particularly tempestuous time at the end of the Lee-Kirby partnership.
Kirby submitted the penciled artwork — along with his letter of resignation. Kirby resigned from Marvel so he could begin his "New Gods" series for rival DC Comics.
Lee was unhappy with the work, and it was shelved. Parts of it appeared as flashbacks in a very different story in "Fantastic Four" No. 108, but the original story was lost.
If that doesn't make the hair stand up on the back of your arms, you ain't a comic fan!
