Fantastic Four #48-50: The coming of Galactus

The first appearance of the Devourer of worlds. A classic tale collected and re-printed multiple times.

Recommended Formats:

  • Essential Fantastic Four vol.3: A cheaper, black and white version but it contains a bigger amount of issues.

  • Masterworks Fantastic Four vol.5: A medium price format, contains a smaller amount of issues than the essential line but with better quality of paper and full color.
  • Fantastic Four Omnibus vol.2: The most expensive format but the highest quality one. A bigger in size, full color format that contains an even bigger amount of issues than the Essential line.

All three formats are great depending what you prefer.
