Here’s where the 5th Dimension storyline gets really weird and confusing. Guest artists John Buscema and Chic Stone take Ben Grimm on a Steve Ditko-ish psychedelic interdimensional long walk. It’s a little out of Buscema’s safe zone in terms of artistic content, but he does a fair job. But that’s not what’s really weird here.
The FF, who have been beating up their landlord for nearly two years of issues so far, finally have to face their money problems and Reed incorporates the team and “sells out.”
I’ve always wondered if there was a backstory here, because I’m pretty sure this was right about the time that Stan left the day-to-day operations of Marvel to others and went to Hollywood to try to get some Marvel movies made.
