MYSTERY PANEL OF THE DAY

XMEN KITTY'S FAIRY TALE

An easy one, from one of my favorite comics of all time.  What comic, what issue?

COSPLAY OF THE DAY

FANTASTIC FOUR #300

The “big” wedding of Human Torch and Alicia.  Extremely anticlimactic.  Worst wedding in FF history.

Here, Puppet Master–Alicia Masters’ pop–blesses her wedding to Johnny Storm.

FANTASTIC FOUR #305

Thing has super breath?

Let’s get one thing straight: I love and appreciate Steve Englehart.  He’s done some wizard comics.

Sadly, FF ain’t one of them.

FANTASTIC FOUR #297-299

Thing gets a new costume to hide his ugly face, and overhears Johnny propose to Alicia…

The team also fights a pinhead.

And in #299, Roger Stern (who also had a great run on Spider-Man—yes, he was almost the Brian Bendis of his day) shows that Johnny Storm hasn’t learned a damn thing from the eavesdropping that occurred in #297, at the top of this post, in this very cute page (art by John Buscema):

Anybody else loving Happy as much as I am?

It is wicked ironic.

FANTASTIC FOUR #296: 25th Anniversary Issue

IMG_1158

A giant-size issue in which Thing rejoins the team but first takes a brief stint as The Mole Man.
Sadly, this comic reintroduces, in a major way, the Thing-hates-the-way-he-looks storyline that John Byrne had managed to move away from.
The tired storyline sticks around for a long time, too.  Very few writers, including the great Roger Stern who was responsible for these F4 issues, have been able to write Ben as anything more than one dimensional.  But the best part of this issue is the roster of artists:
