The Fantastic Four #8

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
November 1962

A creepy puppeteer controls minds via radioactive clay. Mostly this is a formulaic tale told well—one where, once again, irony wins the day & not superheroics. Jack draws an A-1 setpiece, as the boys stop a jailbreak! And more pathos for the Thing as a blind girl falls for his inner nobility.
