September Splash! - Day Three

Today's full page splash is a bit different, in that the coolness of the splash is not self-evident.

No, there is a little explaining to be done. The splash is the Fantastic Four staring agape at some big bad guy.

Well, the key here is that, last issue, Reed was working non-stop (hence the stubble) and they finally glimpsed the big bad - GALACTUS, EATER OF WORLDS!

That explains why this full page splash by Jack Kirby opening Fantastic Four #49 is so darn cool - our heroes, who are used to seeing some crazy stuff, are scared spitless.
