Fantastic Four #10: It's A Marvel Comic 5

Fantastic Four #10, cover Cover Art: Jack Kirby

Cover Inks: Dick Ayers

Today, I get to post the first cover for the blog. As this category is all about destroying the fourth wall, it makes sense that I should include an image from outside of the story itself.

I wish I knew enough of pre-Silver Age comics to definitely say that this is or isn't the first time that the creators of a comic have appeared on the cover. My gut instinct is to say no, but I have no reference for anything that would prove or disprove this. I'm hoping the comments might throw something up...

Anyway, here we have Stan and Jack looking on and commenting on the cover, a nice precursor to the events of the comic within.

Check out our coverage of Fantastic Four #9 on our seventh episode: Don! Don! Don! Don-Don-Don! Don-Don-Don!
