Take a trip back to the best-known period in Archie history, and see all the lessons learned and memories made from Archie and his friends as well as the faculty and staff at Riverdale High! ARCHIE AT RIVERDALE HIGH VOL. 3 is the third in a chronological collection of titles featuring the 1970s series.
In August 1961, Fantastic Four #1 hit newsstands, heralding a new take on super hero stories and the birth of the Silver Age Marvel Universe! Now, sixty years later, experience the excitement of being a comic book fan in that momentous month with the Marvel: August 1961 Omnibus, a complete hardcover collection of every issue that shared the shelves with Fantastic Four #1, many never before reprinted!
Considering leaving the comic book industry behind, Stan Lee was persuaded by his loving wife Joan to create one more book exactly the way he wanted it. And so, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created Fantastic Four #1 and changed the American pop culture landscape forever. Before the Silver Age kicked off, Marvel Comics had published western, romance, comedy, monster and science fiction titles — and in August 1961, Fantastic Four was just one of over a dozen very different Marvel books. This first-of-its-kind omnibus will include:
JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY (1952) #73-74
LIFE WITH MILLIE #13
PATSY WALKER #97
AMAZING ADVENTURES (1961) #6
FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #1
KID COLT, OUTLAW #101
LINDA CARTER, STUDENT NURSE #2
MILLIE THE MODEL #105
STRANGE TALES (1951) #90
TALES OF SUSPENSE (1959) #23
TALES TO ASTONISH (1959) #25
GUNSMOKE WESTERN #67
LOVE ROMANCES #96
TEEN-AGE ROMANCE #84
AMAZING ADULT FANTASY #7
PATSY AND HEDY #79
RAWHIDE KID (1960) #25
These works were brought to readers by some of the most influential comic book creators of all time including Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, Stan Goldberg, Al Hartley, Paul Reinman, Jack Keller, Dick Ayers, Bob Forgione, Vince Colletta, and more!
