50 years ago today, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby made history by creating one of the most definitive comic books of all time. On August 8, 1961, Marvel Comics published and released Fantastic Four #1 to the general public, bringing together a ragtag band of heroes who were endowed with powers after being exposed to irradiated cosmic rays in a ill-fated space mission! From then on, Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm would be forever changed, and they would be known respectively as Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, The Human Torch, and the ever lovin' blue-eyed Thing! Together they were Marvel's First Family... The Fantastic Four!
To celebrate this milestone, Marvel.com has a digital copy of Fantastic Four #1 up for reaping now in their website! Go and visit!
