It was the world’s greatest comic magazine — again! Not since the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had a creator so perfectly captured the intense mood, cosmic style and classic sense of adventure of Marvel’s First Family. Fresh off an earth-shattering and reputation-making run as penciler on UNCANNY X-MEN, John Byrne proved his writing talent was every bit the equal of his art as he pulled double-duty on FANTASTIC FOUR, launching Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny into realms of imagination and wonder into which few creators before had dared to travel. From the four corners of the globe to the farthest reaches of space to the deepest depths of the Negative Zone, the FF face off against foes old and new — including the Dr. Doom, Galactus and Annihilus! Plus: The FF aid the Inhumans, bid farewell to the Baxter Building, don new costumes and celebrate their 20th anniversary in style as Byrne reminds us all there’s a family at the heart of this team of adventurers!

Written by ROY THOMAS & GERRY CONWAY
Penciled by JOHN BUSCEMA with ROSS ANDRU & RAMONA FRADON
Cover by JOHN BUSCEMA
The MARVEL MASTERWORKS march on with the next collection of incomparable FANTASTIC FOUR adventures! When the Human Torch skips out for the Inhumans’ hidden city and his girl Crystal, he doesn’t find the reception he planned for when Quicksilver greets him. Meanwhile, the Frightful Four launch a surprise attack with their newest member — Thundra — that pushes Reed and Sue to the breaking point. Once the dust settles, the FF will be one fewer — because the Invisible Girl has quit! Of course, we wouldn’t have the makings of an FF/Inhumans epic if Maximus the Mad didn’t rear his head and make a power play for the Inhuman throne. By the time all is said and done, the Human Torch will be sporting a fiery new costume, and the Inhuman Queen Medusa will be the FF’s newest member. And that’s just for starters! Ahead of you are classic battles between the Thing and Thundra; the return of the towering Dragon Man and Gideon; the world’s creepiest babysitter, Agatha Harkness; a bizarre trip back to the ’50s courtesy of the Shaper of Worlds; and a reunion with Wyatt Wingfoot in a fight against one of the FF’s oldest enemies, the Miracle Man! To top it off, we’re also including a trip to the Negative Zone and the origin of its truly evil inhabitant, Annihilus. The villain’s plan to harness the enormous powers in Franklin Richards will devastate the FF in a story that changed the Marvel Universe forevermore!

Combating everyone from World War II Axis armies to voodoo priestesses and atomic saboteurs, the super heroes of the Golden Age engaged in adventures wilder than any other. And in the pages of ALL-WINNERS COMICS, the solo adventures of Captain America, the Sub-Mariner, the Human Torch and their cohorts were worth every thin dime. Of course, Marvel’s greatest Golden Age heroes had already been together in one book, but there was one winning concept that hadn’t been explored — a team-up! Now, at last, the fantastic tales that brought together Captain America, Bucky, the Human Torch, Toro, the Sub-Mariner, Miss America and the Whizzer as Marvel’s first super-hero team — the All-Winners Squad — are presented complete and painstakingly restored for the first time! Joining forces, these seven heroes appeared in two amazing book-length adventures in which they raced to solve the perplexing riddle of Isbisa, and journeyed across the globe and back in a fierce fight with Madame Death and the Future Man! Also including the one-issue relaunch of ALL-WINNERS featuring the beautiful Blonde Phantom, this volume proudly completes your collection — making us winners one and all!
