51 YEARS AGO TODAY the combined talents of Lee/Kirby fail!!!

"The covers in those days, the covers were the most important thing. Because we didn’t have fans the way we do now. Today, fans go to a book store, Did the latest Fantastic Four come in yet? In those days we sold according to how attractive a book looked on the newsstand. A kid would walk in the news stand, and whatever caught his eye he’d pick up." - Stan Lee

Instead of buying this
 
I purchased this.
How could a child not like a character that could fly, had a dog that lived in space and had robots that went to school for him?
