It may be sarcastic...
Marvel has revealed an old fan letter from 1963 in which Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin wrote to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby about Fantastic Four #17. Martin was fourteen at the time. He said it was "greater than great" and "absolutely stupendous", but he may have been sarcastic.
He wrote: "[Fantastic Four #17] will live forever as one of the greatest F.F. comics ever printed, ergo, as one of the greatest of ALL comics. In what other comic mag could you see things like a hero falling down a manhole, a heroine mistaking a toy inventor for a criminal, and the President of the U.S.A. leaving a conference that may determine the fate of the world to put his daughter to bed."
