Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 14

Another creative use of the story's title highlight this Marie Severin page. This one is one of my favorite SUB-MARINER issues, the one in which the Golden age Human Torch's kid sidekick, Toro, is brought back by Roy Thomas and given a good send-off. Like most other Marvel heroes, he would come back eventually in spite of that.

Here on the splash, however, there's no sign of the now grown Toro. Just a lot of fish, a lot of bubbles and Subby in what appears to be yet another dance move. Isn't he so graceful? The revolving inker's chair this month went to Mike Esposito in spite of the fake name seen here, one of several pseudonyms the artist used supposedly to keep DC from knowing he was moonlighting for the competition.
