Creation of the Fantastic Four HC (2006) comic books
1st printing. By Eric Fein During the Fantastic Four's publication from the 1960s to the mid-1990s, America saw many changes, and its creators, Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, took note within the comic book's pages. For instance, the first black superhero appeared on the pages of Fantastic Four, perhaps influenced by the civil rights movement happening in the real world. This book takes a comprehensive look at creators Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, from their techniques to their side projects, while examining the larger historical context in which the Fantastic Four was created and that of the comic-book industry itself during the comic book's three-decades-long stint. Hardcover, 50 pages, 7 3/4-in. x 9 1/4-in., text with full color illustrations and photos. Cover price $21.99.
