Everyone has some comic that they fondly remember from childhood. That comic that had something magical about it that you couldn't stop thinking about. The one that was so compelling that you actually learned to read so that you could understand what they were saying in the pictures. The one that you would dream about years later and never know if it was a real comic or just something that you dreamed up.
The things you find surfing the web! Classics Illustrated #160 featuring The Food of the Gods by H. G. Wells! With a cover by Gerald McCann.
This comic came out in early 60's, about the same time that Jack, Stan, and Steve started putting out their "realistic" super-hero comics. Well seeing this I can understand why people would be drawn toward the new X-Men, Fantastic Four and Spider-Man!
