Fantastic Four Annual #1: Flame On 43

Fantastic Four Annual #1, page 21, panel 2 Written by: Stan Lee

Drawn by: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: Art Simek

Goodness me, we've jumped a fair few pages. Sadly, the lack of trope material means that we won't be covering the team's holiday, their abduction by Namor, or the history of Atlantis given at the UN (although I'll be doing a Bollocksfish post at the end of the coverage of this annual).

Instead, we jump right to the opening shots of the Atlantis/Earth war, where Namor invades New York (and other cities off-panel). One of his initial shots is to encase the top floors of the Baxter Building in a fast-drying cement, but thankfully, this cement isn't enough to stop a speeding, flying, flaming teenager.

Don't forget to let us know your feel-good Fantastic Four reading experiences!
