Fantastic Four--Lee/Kirby/Ayers--1962

A little more mainstream than our usual fare but then this is a special occasion--the Golden Anniversary of "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine." Here's a little-remembered but fun piece from issue 11 in which the FF meet their fans both in and outside the story. If I recall correctly, this was also the very first appearance of the team's aged mailman, one Willie Lumpkin, an inside joke as that was the name of the young mail carrier in a comic strip of a few years earlier by Lee and Dan DeCarlo.
