Saturday Bronze Age Sub-Mariner Splash Pages # 48

Here we have another "eh" splash, fronting a convoluted chapter in the ongoing team-up of Subby and Doc Doom. Art is again by Colan and Esposito and we have the main image neatly framed again only this time it's framed by far too many expository word balloons!

Color-wise, it's dark--very dark. This makes the title box jump out at the reader more than it otherwise might. This distracts only briefly, however, from the fact that this is quite frankly, a dull scene to have started off the issue.

Not seen here is the nifty cover by Namor's creator Bill Everett inking Gil Kane.
