Welcome to ComicRetrospective. On this blog, we will be looking at the very early days of Marvel Comics, starting with Fantastic Four number 1, published in November 1961. Each blog post will look back at the Marvel superhero comics from this era, in chronological order, focusing on the story, the characters, notable appearances and anything with may seem unusual from our vantage point 55 years later. All these comics are available on the great Marvel Unlimited service, so if you haven’t read them, you now have no excuse not to.
Depending on what digital archives become available, we may be able to add to this with independent and DC comics. We would definitely like to!
We hope you enjoy the blogs. Let us know what you think.
