Fantastic Four v1 #78, 1968 - Reed Richards finds a way to change the Thing back into Ben Grimm, just as a newly empowered Wizard goes on the attack. Jack Kirby's drawings are reliably polished and well crafted. Ben's glowing transformation has visual elements and colors similar to that on the cover. Kirby's juxtaposition of two faces is compelling, providing a stark contrast reminiscent of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. See today's posts or more Kirby or Fantastic Four issues.
