Bronze Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Saturdays # 54


This one has an excuse. Looks like Bill Everett pulled it together and finished the story that was left undone halfway through the previous issue. Unfortunately, there was no new splash--just the next page. Editor Roy Thomas or someone pulled together a fake splash here by devoting the top quarter page to the horrendously colored new title for this second half. And that's all it is, too, as this one also ends halfway through. The issue is padded out with a fun backup by the always-interesting Alan Weiss. For Everett's part, his panels seem less detailed than usual and there's some obvious retouching from John Romita.
