SPECTACULAR SPLASH PAGES #4...
What fascinates me about this splash page is the caption box. Just why the lettering is spaced within it the way it is puzzles me, as it's an odd layout to be sure. There's nothing even remotely odd about JACK KIRBY's & DICK AYERS' art though, and the perspective seems spot on. You really get the sense that the FF are actually floating downward in defiance of gravity, and the alien architecture makes you wonder if Kirby had really been to Planet X. I mean, how else could he have drawn the darn place so convincingly?
