Fantastic Four Try-Out Page by John Byrne!

fantastic four by john byrne

Just in case anyone hasn't seen this yet... I know all of these pages were printed in an issue of Comics Interview...

Mighty Marvel Team-Up Thrillers!

msh_teamupthrillers

Yep, Ben's there, fighting the Hulk... because, y'know, when you're doing a team-up or battle trade paperback, you've got to have a Thing-Hulk story in there...

1980s Marvel Videos!

msh_videos1.JPG

These were cool videos, although a bit overpriced, if I recall. The FF episodes that appeared on some of these were from the series with Herbie. The other Marvel toons (other than Spider-Man and Spider-Woman) were from the 1960s Grantway-Lawrence syndicated stuff. The Spider-Woman was, of course, from her own series. Any tapes that led off with a Spidey cartoon were (I believe) from a short-lived Spidey series from the 1980s that had limited syndication. All these tapes were backed up with a 1960s Spidey episode.

Marvelous World of Icarus Album - Back Side!

msh_marvelworldicarus2

I know, I haven't showed the front side of this album yet... This seems to just be one of those weird things that you can't quite believe your eyes when you see it. I don't believe I've ever heard of this group, but apparently someone at Marvel thought they'd be big, and so okayed this bit of licensing!

Wish I had a better photo of this, that showed both images!

I much preferred the coloring on the original comic!

Thing Argentina Soccer Standee!

Yes, it's another wonderfully weird Argentina item! These seem to pop up on eBay about every six or seven months.

Marvel Super-Heroes French Stamp Set!

At long last, here's a look at the inside of the box of this stamp set... and you can see Reed and Ben lurking there at the lower right-hand corner! Some day, I'll get the rest of the photos here!

Giant-Size FF (and others) House Ad!

marvel_11-74_02

I believe this house ad appeared at the bottom of the letter column page. This was published in the November, 1974 cover-dated Marvels.

Fantastic Four Sky Sleds Launcher!

msh_ffskysledslauncher.jpg

It's so rare to see an FF rack toy... it's just too bad that when I do come across a photo of one, it's as lame as this is... but at least the card art's cool!

Marvel Super-Heroes See-A-Show Set!

seeashow_66marvel1.JPG

Kenner's See-A-Show was intended to compete with the more popular View-Master. Instead of film and discs, the See-A-Show used cards that were printed on... and either the paper was thin enough to let light through, or the viewer was somehow configured to let light show on the cards.

As far as the stories themselves go, it pretty much followed the format of the Give-A-Show Projector, with seven pictures (way too often drawn or colored off-model), and the dialogue lettered at the top of the picture. If, by the time this post publishes, I've latched onto the FF one, I'll plug it in below here, as a YouTube video!

Marvel's Greatest Superhero Battles Trade Paperback!

msh_tpb_superbattles.jpg

I'm not sure, but I may actually have this one... if I do, it's not handy right now, so I can't tell you which Thing-Hulk battle it is that's featured.

Cover of the Day: Fantastic Four Annual 11!

1572_4_0011.jpg

I believe this issue was part of a two-parter with Marvel Two-In-One, but I forget if it was an annual or just a regular issue!
