Another day, another issue of the Fantastic Four. I get to present the first page of Fantastic Four #23, one of my favourite opening splash pages from the series.

For no reason at all, and certainly for no reason connected to the plot, Reed has unleashed a miniature raptor in the Baxter Building, and chaos reigns as the team try to contain it. It's so completely crazy and full of energy that it's impossible not to love.

And, of course, Johnny get to yell his catchphrase and ignite, because there's no way that a time-displaced dinosaur won't be panicked by fire.
