    Fantastic Four Epic Collection Vol. 5: The Name is Doom collects Fantastic Four #68-87, Annual #6, and Not Brand Echh #6-7. I'm a Fantastic Four guy from way back and I stumbled upon a gift card a couple weeks ago so I figured I'd take the plunge into this collection of the Fantastic Four during their heyday.

I'm a Fantastic Four guy from way back and I stumbled upon a gift card a couple weeks ago so I figured I'd take the plunge into this collection of the Fantastic Four during their heyday. The classic team of Jack Kirby, Joe Sinnott, and Stan Lee are heading toward the end of their monumental run in this volume. In this collection, they go up against the Wizard, Galactus, Annihilus, the Mad Thinker, Maximus the Mad, Doctor Doom, and the thing that could tear the team asunder, Sue Richards' pregnancy. Guest stars include Daredevil, Spider-Man, Thor, The Inhumans, and the Silver Surfer. I have to think Kirby was already looking for greener pastures at this point. Annihilus is the only new character introduced and the rest of the villains are the old standards. Still, there is some groovy shit going on, like the Silver Surfer going to the Microverse, Crystal joining the team, and the psychedelic site seeing sojourn into the Negative Zone to grab Annihilus' cosmic rod. Ahem. The art is Kirby in his prime, although there are fewer panels per page toward the end of the volume than we normally get. He wasn't phoning it in but he wasn't going 100 miles per hour either. Part of the greener pastures thing I mentioned earlier. Stan Lee's dialogue alternates between great and grating, always with a hint of cheese. I love it but some of it is terrible. Back to the art, Kirby was still experimenting despite being disillusioned with how much credit he was getting. There were some Kirby collages and this volume has some striking covers. While the Fantastic Four would soon lose the services of The King, Fantastic Four Epic Collection Vol. 5: The Name is Doom is a good look at the Fantastic Four when they were still at the top of the Marvel food chain. Four out of five stars.

    I really enjoyed this, even though this is in the period where Jack was angry with Stan and Marvel and trying not give them another character to take away from him. There is still a rich history for the FF to draw from though, because Jack and Stan filled the issues before this with such amazing characters. We do get a lot of repeat villain's, and in a way some repeat story lines, but it's still kept fresh and new by your love of the characters and Kirby's amazing visuals.

    Note: My continuous effort to include sequential storytelling/comics in my book reading. Took awhile to get through this. This is my first time actually reading Stan Lee and Jack Kirby stuff. It answered two questions for me. 1) I really don't like science fiction - especially in garish comic book form. 2) Why DC comics has always been my comics fare of choice. I've always been angled to DC Comics.

Took awhile to get through this. This is my first time actually reading Stan Lee and Jack Kirby stuff. It answered two questions for me. 1) I really don't like science fiction - especially in garish comic book form. 2) Why DC comics has always been my comics fare of choice. I've always been angled to DC Comics. Even though the Claremont/Byrne years got me buying Marvel comics and Miller's Daredevil had me follow most of those, I always ended up back in the DC world. This volume is a perfect example why. DC has always been more based in reasoned logic and Marvel has been more outrageous. This volume is a perfect example of the outrageous. I get that Marvel was working to draw in the crowd looking for a wild time. Dear friends who indulged in these comics are a far wilder lot than I. There is certainly a contrast to DC of Kirby's crazy metal space ship stuff everywhere and pages of explosions due to various wavering of hands. The endless stories included here of one being after another wanting world and/or universe supremacy is beyond ridiculous. The writing effort to connect all of these as one story than separate stories inflames the goofiness of it all. Much easier to swallow (and tougher to write) single issue stories. With so many battles happening in every issue, a more believable move would've been to have gaps in between with some illusion of rest included. Stan Lee is the sole name as writer and I don't like a bit of it. I know people love his work. It's over done and frankly boring of repetitious nonsense. Lee was no Bob Haney or Len Wein. Again, i understand the effort to draw a crowd, but I'm reviewing this of my view and decades involved with comics. The heavy hand of action and romance is peculiar in itself. To mix the super hero stuff is too much. The artwork does fit the writing. Kirby was as outrageous as Lee. The style is OK for the tales. Though, I don't care for his style. Overall the characters are excellent in construction. The settings are mostly, too. The otherworldly settings were typical science fiction nonsense. The approach make-it-up-since-it-doesn't-exist-anyway style. I am well aware this collection is considered legendary in comics. It's just not my kind of legendary and I know all of it could have been done so much better. Bottom line: I don't recommend this book. 4 out of ten points.

    This is a slightly uneven stretch of the Lee/Kirby FF run, though there’s plenty of good stuff in here. But you can see some indications that they were not on the same page, particularly in the Return of Galactus arc. Still, it picks up toward the end with the debut of Annihilus, the birth of Franklin Richards, Crystal suiting up as a member of the FF, and a VERY good Doom story. Kirby’s growing dissatisfied with Stan and Marvel, but he’s still turning out some incredible work.
