FANTASTIC FOUR (1961-96; 2003-12) Issue #43 Interior Page
VF: 8.0
Talk about action-packed panels! This page is pure Jack Kirby; forceful, kinetic, psychedelic, and chock-full of all the personal tics and touches that made Kirby the single most-revered artist in the comic form. His dramatic use of perspective and foreshortening creates a sense of danger, and his use of motion lines and other tried-and-true comic book flourishes highlights the important action taking place in these panels.

The storyline in FF #43 concerns Reed Richards' attempts to restore Ben Grimm's personality after he had been brainwashed by the Frightful Four, but the experiment goes haywire, causing an explosion that exposes Mr. Fantastic and the Thing to deadly Gamma Rays. It is only the quick thinking of Sue Richards that saves the day and allows the Thing to return to his ever-lovin' blue-eyed self. If you are a fan of Jack Kirby, the Fantastic Four, Silver Age Marvel or any combination of these elements, how can you possibly resist the power of this awesome page? This is Kirby at the top of his form, reveling in his heyday, churning out incredible pieces of art for several different groundbreaking titles daily, and in doing so, shaping the history and narrative of the comic art form.
