    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 by.

    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.

     April 14, 2002 | FF #176 Reprint
    From Vu
    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.

And with the Invisible Woman and her unborn child near death, and Mr. Fantastic a wanted fugitive, must the Human Torch put himself in the hands of his greatest enemy in order to insure the Fantastic Four's survival? Plus: The birth of Franklin Richards from FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #6 -- the longest single FF story produced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby! And to top it all off, the Impossible Man invades the Marvel Bullpen in a tale from FANTASTIC FOUR #176 by Roy Thomas and George Pérez!

    THE FORMAT: Take one all-new story, then add on a double-sized tale and yet another full-length adventure and you have one huge honkin’ comic... for only a buck and a quarter more!
