100 SCC Sketch Cards: #98 THE EVER-LOVIN' BLUE EYED THING
One of my favourite comics is Fantastic Four #51 'This Man, This Monster' (you'd never have guessed right?) and the Fantastic Four was one of my first introductions to comics through their appearance in the British weekly reprint title 'Mighty World of Marvel'. John Byrne's 80s revamp was also responsible for me getting completely hooked on the 'proper' American issues. And in the Fantastic Four, Ben was always the stand out character and star of another favourite title, Marvel Two-In-One.
This card also represents the genius of Jack Kirby. It is truly amazing how much impact this one creator had on the comics industry and how many characters that he created, co-created or worked on are still around. Thanks Jack.
