    "Counter-Earth Must Die -- At the Hands of Galactus!" Part 3 of 5. Script by Roy Thomas. Art by John Buscema (breakdowns) and Joe Sinnott (finishes). Cover by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Galactus has arrived at Counter-Earth! And that means the planet's days are numbered. Is there anything the FF can do to save the High Evolutionary's creation? Perhaps another world could be substituted for Counter-Earth to satisfy the Devourer of Worlds' appetite. So to that end, Reed and Ben journey to the planet Mekka and renew acquaintances with the Thing's old ally Torgo; while Johnny and Gorr travel to a medieval planet. Flashback cameos by the Air Walker, Firelord, and the Silver Surfer. (Note: A 30-cent cover price variant exists for this issue.) 32 pages Cover price $0.25.
