Fantastic Four #153 (Pt 7) Divide and Conquer aka Fantastic Four Annual 5!

Some years ago at the Avengers Assemble forum I mentioned that the first FF #153 panel shown here--the group striding forth--was clearly inspired by a similar panel from 1967's Fantastic Four Annual #5. This led me to the other panels. 

Sequential panels from pages 11 and 12 in 1974's Fantastic Four #153:  
Fantastic Four 153-WorldsInCollision
                                 
Fantastic Four 153-WorldsInCollision

Sequential panels from pages 20 and 21 in 1967's Fantastic Four Annual #5:
Fantastic Four Annual 5-DivideandConquer
Fantastic Four Annual 5-KingSizeSpecial
Fantastic Four Annual #5 (1967) Jack Kirby
Plus:  a panel from page 22. 
Fantastic Four Annual 5-DivideandConquer
Fantastic Four Annual #5 (1967) Kirby
                                     

Breaking it down: 

Fantastic Four 153-Worlds-In-Collision
Fantastic Four #153 (1974) Rich Buckler

Fantastic Four Annual 5-Inhumans-BlackPanther
Fantastic Four Annual #5 (1967) Jack Kirby
And see the big yellow arrow in the Kirby panel? It reads:
"Special Note: We suggest you study this illustration carefully, and perhaps even file it away in some safe repository--for it is unlikely you will soon see another such awesome aggregation of raw power as now confronts your ever-lovin' eyes--!"

Looks like someone took Stan's suggestion to heart. ;)
