Marvel's Greatest Comics (1969): 23-34

Marvel's Greatest Comics #23-34 were giant-sized comics that reprinted stories from the Fantastic Four, Tales of Suspense (Iron Man, Captain America, & the Watcher), and Strange Tales (Dr. Strange & the Human Torch). It was a continuation of Marvel Collectors' Item Classics. Towards the end, they focused solely on the Fantastic Four and became a regular-sized comic with issue 35.

The reprinted FF issues were Fantastic Four #12, 31-42, & 44-47. Fantastic Four #31 was reprinted twice and Fantastic Four #43 was reprinted in Fantastic Four Annual #9. The original FF covers were mostly used, with some new covers thrown in. Marvel's Greatest Comics #27-28 also have some page cuts.

Everything here except the Watcher stories have been reprinted in their respective Masterworks. The Watcher stories will be reprinted in an upcoming Marvel Rarities Masterworks.
