Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 16

Often portrayed as an angry rebel, today's splash page from 1969 is one of my favorite depictions of Namor looking as regal as a Price ought to look! Framed beautifully by Marie (still with Mike Esposito hiding on the inks) and featuring a downright beautiful depiction of Namor's consort, the Lady Dorma, as well, it's a lovely symbolic splash. Of course there's also ol' growly Tiger Shark and a rather disinterested looking gentleman named Professor Newell about whom we will find out more in a few issues. Storywise, Roy hits a good stride here with continuity threads continuing and multi-part stories starting to become more and more the norm.
