Upcoming Kirby - Marvel early 2005

This is the Kirby stuff from Marvel's tentative schedule for the first few months of 2005, as posted to rec.arts.comics.marvel.universe.

MARVEL VISIONARIES: STAN LEE HC (some FF and THOR)
BLACK PANTHER BY JACK KIRBY VOL. 1 TPB (#1 - #7)
MARVEL WEDDINGS TPB (one story, which is also reprinted in the MV:STAN LEE book)
MARVEL MASTERWORKS HC: THE FANTASTIC FOUR VOL. 8 (#72 - #81, Annual 6)
BEST OF THE FANTASTIC FOUR HC (FF #1, #39, #40, #51 and probably the cover to #176)
ESSENTIAL THOR VOL. 2 TPB (JiM/THOR #113-#126, Annuals #1, #2)

The last one is the most exciting to me. The most odd is the BLACK PANTHER book.

Note two other books of some interest on their own merits, although the Kirby content will likely only be a handful of covers.

MARVEL VISIONARIES: STEVE DITKO HC
MARVEL MASTERWORKS: THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN VOL. 2
