FANTASTIC FOUR #68-71: The Mini-Skirt!

dirty comics
Yes, the micromini.

That’s the most important part of this adventure in which Thing once again is upset about how he looks, once again Reed tries to cure him, and once again it all goes wrong.  This time, Thing goes ballistic at the hands of the Mad Thinker.  In this panel, Thing falls out the window and Reed catches him.  I like the way he loops his arm around there.  Kinda cool.

Overall, though, this is kind of the same-old same-old for the team.  Stan Lee seems to be running out of ideas here, two thirds through his run with the team.  It makes sense, seeing as how he was churning out so many comics a month at the time…And you can’t fault his overall track record.

Finally, at the end of it all, we get to see Reed in a rare moment of ass kicking…It’s great fight sequences like this that really make me love Jack Kirby.

Actually, that isn’t the end.  The true end of the story is where Reed announces that Sue is pregnant and therefore he can’t keep going in the Fantastic Four.

So, they go their separate ways.  But don’t worry, it doesn’t last long.
