Fantastic Four! Different yes, but Better?

It was just a few weeks ago that in this blog post that I shared the image of Jack Kirby's original artwork to the cover of 1968's Fantastic Four #77 and also the beautifully-colored printed version that I can't resist sharing again up above.

Of course Marvel's Greatest Comics was the series that, through the 1970s, reprinted consecutive 1960s Fantastic Four issues with their original covers. When M.G.C. got around to reprinting FF #77, the cover colorist went his/her own way and broke ranks with the original colorist's bold scheme (see below).
Different fans may have differing viewpoints, of course, but I definitely prefer an all-red, blood-red Psycho-Man!
