Classic Kirby/Sinnott Artwork – FF # 172 Cover

This is the cover from the book I remember having as a ten-year old. Interesting to see Marvel must have been transitioning into the 30 cents price as you can see on this scan.

It’s funny, at the time, the raise to 30 cents was huge! Instead of buying 4 comics for a buck, now you could only buy 3. I remember that making a big difference to me. Amazing to think about how out of control our inflation in the USA has been over the last 40 years. I can’t imagine paying $5.99 for a comic book today.
