I got it on a Saturday and, like quite a few Saturdays in that era, the evening went like this: I went to my biological father's apartment -- my parents were divorced by then -- watched "The Odd Couple" on Channel 5 -- repeats were on near 11:00 PM, I think -- and then I watched some monster movie on Channel 20 from D.C. or on Channel 45 from Baltimore.
My father had stopped drinking by then but he took a lot of sleeping pills and other prescription drugs so I'm positive that he was passed out way before 11:00 PM.
Don't feel too sorry for me; with him asleep, I could enjoy TV and Jack Kirby for as long as I wanted to.
Oddly, the Fantastic Four are not in this issue too much but the guest shot from The Black Panther is a nice diversion. And The Inhumans, as drawn by Jack Kirby, were always an odd thrill. I can vividly remember wondering about these characters -- who they were, where they came from -- and being pretty intrigued by silent leader Black Bolt.
It's funny what you remember but I can vividly remember reading and re-reading this issue that night as the TV blared and Dad snored.
This may have been the moment when the name "Jack Kirby" clicked and I started to look for more of his stuff.
