One of the sillier concepts of all time, this features Kirby and others from Marvel in the 1960s transformed into the Fantastic Four, with the on-the-nose title of “What If… The Fantastic Four Were the Original Marvel Bullpen?”. Kirby is cast as The Thing, of course.
It’s all delightfully goofy, with a few gentle shots taken at the man playing Mr. Fantastic. And it was good to see Kirby getting one last pseudo-shot at writing and drawing a Fantastic Four story.
Joe Sinnott inked the cover, while Mike Royer and Bill Wray inked the 34 interior pages.
