35 Years Ago - the first of three Kirbyless Holiday seasons

The 1978 Holiday season found the shops totally devoid of any new Kirby comics, his most recent books, DEVIL DINOSAUR #9 and MACHINE MAN #9  had been released 3 months earlier. The only Kirby available was MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS #82, which reprinted all but one page of FANTASTIC FOUR #102 from eight years earlier. 


  1. I am curious. Which page was not reprinted, and can you speculate 'why'?

  2. I will be presenting the missing page in the very near future. It was the usual reason. The gradual lowering of the page count over time.
