Fantastic Four #2 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Fantastic Four v1 #2, 1962 - Arriving on Earth for the first time, the their shape-changing Skrulls turn society against the Fantastic Four. Although recognizable, Jack Kirby's work is fairly conservative. The layouts are standard far and take few chances, despite the newness of the series. The artist employs three larger panels within the story, an attempt to break up some of the monotonous pacing. The issue's highlight is a pin-up page of the Thing in all his grotesque glory. This is number 2 of 116 Fantastic Four issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
