Script: Stan Lee

Art: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

Today’s door-scrapingly flat panel comes from a series of moments where Reed imagines his wonderful stretching powers and how they mean nothing of Sue is going to be off thinking about Namor all the time.

What I like about this panel is the thing double-edge around Reed’s face, suggesting that his body is the same thickness all over, presumably about a centimetre or so. It then gets a little weird when you realise that Reed is drawn out of scale with the single door that he is sliding under. Not drastically out of scale, say he’s about the width of a hobbit standing in a normal human door. Has he been on the Pym Particles?
