Here’s a cool Jack Kirby splash panel from Galactus’ first appearance. And for that momentous occasion, he decided to wear shorts! Galactus, the only way you could look worse is if you had black socks pulled up to your calves! (In every other reprint of this, Marvel has the colorist add in some purple pants for the big G.) Plus, Johnny goes on a cosmic journey to check out Galactus’ interstellar bachelor pad.
