Marvel's Greatest Comics #37 - The Startling Saga of the Silver Surfer

A reprint of FF #50 (1966) here, the conclusion of the Galactus trilogy. Lots of fun and grand cosmic adventure in the first half, as the Torch returns with the Ultimate Nullifier, allowing the FF to get Galactus to leave.

The second half of the issue sets up some of the future stories and effects of the events of this story, including Ben's melancholy and the Torch starting college.

Joe Sinnott inked the 20-page story. The cover is a non-Kirby new cover.

Published 1972
