Unforgettably Written In The Grand Manner by: Stan Lee

Powerfully Drawn In The Heroic Manner by: Jack Kirby

Inked by: George Roussos

Lettered by: Art Simek

One of the subplots throughout this issue and the last is Reed's mysterious illness, which comes pretty much out of nowhere and removes Mr Fantastic from the table for about an issue-and-a-half. This lends itself to some rather lovely melodramatic panels of Reed struggling to overcome his weakness and dizziness to aid the rest of his team. However, the illness suddenly comes on, and is suddenly cured when Reed needs to join with the rest of the heroes for the final fight.
