The Fantastic Four #2

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
January 1962
***

The Four’s rep gets sullied by a cadre of green, shape-shifting alien impersonators. The plot’s a scrap of sci-fi paranoia, with anti-McCarthy undertones. But the vivacity of Kirby’s panels & the team’s outsider status/inner dissension is great—esp. the violent, tragic self-hatred of the Thing!
