Catching Up with Roy Thomas
During that tenure at Marvel, Thomas wrote several other key titles, including Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, a second run on X-Men with Neal Adams, and Fantastic Four (with a young artist named George Pérez, who took over the series after assisting penciller Rich Buckler).
"I really liked George's work from the beginning," Thomas told CBG. "We had a lot of fun with it. We did issues in which we had people trying out for The Frightful Four. We did the second Impossible Man story."

hey kids! COMICS!
Back to the future of comics, again...
written by Heidi MacDonald
At a foodtown in a dusty strip mall on
Route 28 in Whitehouse Station, N.J., there was a decrepit spinner
rack. The comics were yellowed and creased, because no rack jobber came
For some reason, I purchased Amazing Spider-Man #161 written by Len Wein with art by Ross Andru, which featured The Punisher and Nighcrawler, and Fantastic Four
#176 by Roy Thomas and George Pérez, which featured The Impossible Man
attacking some really cool place called the Marvel Bullpen.
(Aside: That story was just reprinted in Fantastic Four vol. 3, #54… might have to go snag a copy.)
Unbeknownst to me, later I would work
with Len Wein and go to lunch with him once a week on the Disney lot. I
would interview George Pérez for a special spotlight. I'd see Chris
Claremont almost every day, because he was walking to work through
Madison Square Park in one direction, and I was walking in the other
direction, and we'd stop and say hi once in a while.

FF #176 Reprint
Looking through the latest reprint of FANTASTIC FOUR #176, I thought these panels were pretty amusing.
Panel One: Jack Kirby
Panel Two: George Pérez and Roy Thomas
Panel Three: Stan Lee
The Marvel staff appearances in comes
(drawn by Pérez) isn't that uncommon back in the 70s and 80s. In fact,
George's first work (in ASTONISHING TALES #25) is about Marvel staff.
