AMAZING ADVENTURES (1970) (#1-39) (MARVEL) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Amazing Adventures (1970) #1
Premiere issue. Starring the Inhumans and the Black Widow. "The Inhumans" is written and drawn by Jack Kirby with inks by Chic Stone. Fans could consider this Kirby's warm-up work for his pending jump to DC and the creation of the Fourth World classics (Mister Miracle, the New Gods, Forever People, Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen). Here, the royal family of Attilan are reintroduced Black Bolt, Gorgon, Medusa, Triton, Karnak and Crystal. As they struggle to maintain peace with normal humans, Mad Maximus (Black Bolt's brother) launches a missile attack on their Hidden Refuge; and the missile bears the mark of the Fantastic Four!

"Then Came ... the Black Widow!" is written by Gary Friedrich with art by John Buscema and John Verpooten. Former KGB spy Natasha Romanova, lovely and deadly as her namesake, lives the life of a jet-setter; rubbing elbows the likes of Jackie O and Twiggy. But her secret desire to embrace the life of danger, a path she follows whenever she doffs her expensive furs and diamond jewelry to put on her black leather bodysuit and wondrous Widow's Sting. With her trusty chauffeur Ivan by her side, the Black Widow takes on a gang of loan sharks in the heart of the cold city!
