Comics historian Craig Yoe has one of the greatest collections of original comics art I’ve ever seen. It’s nothing short of extraordinary. (No wonder he had an exhibit at New York’s Society of Illustrators a while back.)

But the story of how he got this fantastic page just might beat them all.

We bring you… FIN FANG FOOM AND THE KING:

  1. I was always suspicious of the Asian face in the reprint of Fin Fang Foom…. it seemed odd to me that what should have been Asian was Caucasian, or vice versa. I had always suspected that the faces had been altered. (See the updated reprints of Dr. Droom… when Stern brought him into the Avengers…for an example.)
