Fantastic Four #118 (Pt 3) Crystal Rebuffs Johnny

1972: Fantastic Four #118 John Buscema
I love her hair here...
1970: Fantastic Four #99 Jack Kirby
...and here! 



You'll see a number of panels in #118 that are reminiscent of scenes from #99; not surprising as both issues feature Johnny seeking out Crystal.
