Fantastic Four #87 - The Power and the Pride

This issue features the last chapter of Kirby's last Doctor Doom story, as the FF have escaped Doom's latest trap thanks to a rescue from Sue, but still have to get out of Latveria. Isn't that a great looking castle?

The rest of the story involves the various battles to get to Doom, including undercover SHIELD agents, former nazi minions and Doom sacrificing his plans against the FF to save his art treasures. Definitely the off-beat ending that the cover promised. Along the way there are two great splash pages of Doom. This storyline definitely delivered some of the definitive images of the villain.

Cover and 20-page story inks by Joe Sinnott.

Published 1969
