(Continued from November 1962)
FANTASTIC FOUR 9 / cover by Jack Kirby & Dick Ayers
JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY 87 / cover by Jack Kirby & Dick Ayers
from the GCD: "Synopsis: In order to solve the mystery of a rash of defecting American scientists, Dr. Blake uses himself as bait and is abducted by communists. He is imprisoned with the other missing scientists, but is able to transform into Thor and free them all."
JACK KIRBY continues cycling themes like clockwork, and this issue we're back on DIRTY COMMIES again! I sometimes wonder if this world will ever put a stop to CRIMINAL elements either being in control of governments, or BACKING them behind the scenes, all for their own personal profit? (Ironically, Russia seems to be cleaning up its act these days on that score, while America is in worse shape than ever.)
Larry Lieber & Dick Ayers continue on dialogue & inks. This is the first episode not to be broken down into smaller chapters with separate titles.
