Fantastic Four # 14 Splash

A scan of the first page to Fantastic Four# 14 (May 1963) followed by a reprint of the published version. Art by Kirby/Ayers. Below that is a slabbed copy of the book so you can see the Kirby/Ditko cover.

Notice the Human Torch is on fire even though he is inside the space craft — I’ve seen a few examples from this book where it looks like Stan Lee had someone in production change that (inserting Johnny Storm without the flame) on some of the smaller panels. Also note the large paste-up over panel 2 where it looks like Lee decided to make a major revision to his text — instead of adding a massive amount of white-out it was probably  easier to simply cut and paste on a new piece of art.
