Fantastic Four #33: Reed's Stretchy Body 96
Script: Smilin' Stan Lee
Art: Jolly Jack Kirby
Inks: Chucklin' Chic Stone
Lettering: Amiable Art Simek
We end the issue with the Fantastic Four using Reed's body as a life raft. It's hard to work out just how they're going to get back to the mainland, as nobody seems too fussed about means of propulsion, but I guess that's just something that'll happen off panel.
In the meantime, the ongoing will-they-won't-they with Namor, Reed and Sue rears its head in the final panel, having remained mostly dormant for the issue. We're still a little way away from Reed and Sue getting engaged, but at this point, it seems clear that Stan and Jack want to continue playing the emotional beats of the love triangle.
