A FORGOTTEN FANTASTIC FOUR 'CROSSOVER' CLASSIC?
From WHAM! #143, cover-dated March 11th 1967
What would you like first, the good news or the bad news?
Well, the good news is that here's THE HUMBUGS strip I spoke of
in a recent post, in which the terrible twins play at being THE THING
and THE INVISIBLE GIRL. The bad news is that I haven't yet brought
down all my comic boxes (in which are stored my loose issues of WHAM!)
from the attic, so I've had to scan the page from my bound volume which,
as you can see, doesn't really lend itself to the process. (I can't open it
wide enough to lay flat on the screen, hence the shadow and blurred
speech balloons on the right-hand side of the page.)
When I find the loose issue (which I think I've got) I'll scan the
page properly and replace the current image with a better one. In
the meantime, however, this imperfect presentation should at
least give you a fair idea of what's happening.
