Another Marvel book that’s had the scaffolding of mythology constructed around it which doesn’t actually warrant it. As ever with the early Marvel books, what’s striking is the sheer energy of the piece, the relentless movement from one story to the next without a lull. The heroes don’t even seem to get time to stop for lunch and refreshments as waves of supervillains batter at them, even during Reed and Sue’s wedding. God alone knows where they found the time to plan that – whilst battering the living daylights out of Doctor Doom or the Mole Man? Anyway, the obvious reason for this book being selected is the first encounter with the virtual force of nature Galactus. Again, images kaleidoscope past, such as the Silver Surfer and bizarre skies over New York City. Heedful of the limited attention span of youngsters Lee and Kirby don’t build in pauses and reactions to give weight to these events. Ultimate badass that he is, Galactus is just another threat to earth for the heroes to beat down. Still, good fun despite it being prime evidence for how fast pop culture and attitudes date. ( )
