This issue of the Fantastic Four takes place towards the back end of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s record-breaking run on the book. The contents of each issue may have been better than most other books on the market, but the strain of Lee and Kirby’s relationship began to show. Stories weren’t as memorable and communication between the two wasn’t as harmonious as before.

Despite the slow demise of the creators' relationship, there's no denying that Kirby was simply killing it with these covers. The image of Ben Grimm’s powerful paw ripping down a fight poster may not give much insight into the issue's plot, but it makes for a damn good tease. Seldomly had readers ever been put inside a character's head like that. Leave it to Kirby to still be innovative with a book that he was 92 issues deep into.
