They were visionaries. Explorers. Imaginauts. They were Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. And like their creations - the Fantastic Four - they continually strove to overcome the impossible and achieve the extraordinary. Now, the first three years of their landmark run on Fantastic Four - issues #1-30 and Annual #1 - are collected in one oversized volume.

Review: Fantastic Four Omnibus, Vol. 1 (Fantastic Four Omnibus Editions)

User Review  - Steven Matview - Goodreads

This is why Jack Kirby is called “The King.” His pencils in the book that launched Marvel Comics are so gorgeous I could stare at them all day. The dialogue from Lee, like a lot of older comics, is very silted and dated but Lee does a good job infusing the book with a lot of heart. Read full review

About the author (2007)

Stan Lee, 1925 Stan Lee was born in 1925. He joined Marvel Comics in the early 1940's and has remained there for 60 years. He is the creator of Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, and has more than 2 billion comics books featuring these well known characters in print. While employed at Marvel Comics, Lee signed a contract that prohibited him from working for any company besides Marvel. When Marvel went bankrupt, the contract became null and void and Lee created his own company called Stan Lee Media. He remains Chairman Emeritus at Marvel, but spends most of his time on his new internet based company. Stan Lee Media will feature downloadable Superheroes. Lee also signed a deal with DC Comics to revamp some of their signature characters, including Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including Fighting American, Boys' Ranch and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel's Fantastic Four cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy," which was followed by The Demon, Omac and Kamandi. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.
