Although Colan would be considered one of the best Sub-Mariner artists in the ling run, this is not a great splash page. In fact, Namor's dramatic grab of the Serpent Crown (which would go on to bedevil Marvel characters for years!), looks more like a lovely ballet move here. Adkins remains for some contiuity between artists but he didn't help Colan's oddly thin-waisted Subby in this shot. Note, though, that the head, while still round, has picked up a little of its once and future triangular look by Gene's treatment of our hero's hair...which always seems to stay in place underwater.
