Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 42

Yikes! Way too busy and way too much yellow!

The Tuska/Mooney team here makes this look more like a bad seventies movie poster.

The three very different fonts at the top of the page don't help, especially with the mixture of oddly chosen colors.

Finally, Namor himself, rolling on the ground here, is not the most inviting image of one's protagonist. Gerry was apparently unaware of the adage that every issue is someone's first. If this was my first image of Namor, I'd be putting it back on the stands right now and replacing it with that month's THE INCREDIBLE HULK.
