Fantastic Four #152 (Pt 2) Reed and Sue


Let's take a look at this three panel sequence from FF #152. By the way, these are Jim Mooney finishes over Buckler layouts in #152. Marvel thanked Mooney for stepping in and saving "us at the last minute."

During this time Marvel was producing a large number of comics; and Buckler, Sinnott, Sal Buscema and others were working on multiple assignments including 1974's Giant-Size issues! With such a large output, looming deadlines, etc., it's not surprising there were some rush jobs and last minute "rescues"  along the way.

Panel one is a combo of two panels from FF #43.
