Fantastic Four #9 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Fantastic Four v1 #9, 1962 - Out of money and out of time, the desperate FF agrees to a movie contract financed by the Sub-mariner (?). The heroes are separated to perform different scenes, unaware of the traps that await them. Jack Kirby employs large panels to dominate the start of each chapter. Although they add variety, most of his pages seem too crowded with panels with little regard to design. Kirby's cover layout is similarly uninspired (why do the Human Torch's suitcases not catch on fire?). This is number 9 of 116 Fantastic Four issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
