Strange Tales #116 [1964] – Cover


This is one of my least favourite Kirby drawings of the Thing. I’m not sure how this one got through. George Roussos inks this one, and he was also inking FF at the time, and while his version of the Thing sometimes leaned towards this kind of blockiness, but I don’t think it got this far. On the other hand, everything else on this cover is excellent. I especially like those fireballs, and the city in the background.

    I kinda like it, but that may be for sentimental reasons, as its one of the earliest Strange Tales comics I had.

    Look at the floating head of Thing on the splash page of the Hate Monger FF story (FF #21). Bug-eyed and really, really lumpy. Inks: George Roussos (credited as George Bell)

    The Torch is pretty simplified, as well… Just a flaming oval…
