It's not so much the Thing's bickering convincing Sue and Reed the family need a south seas island holiday (meaning they were virtually next door) that sells it, but the art of iconic Conan artist, Earl Norem.
As the quartet are quickly put to work stopping a tidal wave with similar holiday plans, Norem's paintbrush makes the blue spandex seem logical beach attire, and making the four's human selves actually look like real people.
Despite the countless times I've read these pages, the scene that sticks in my head over the Human Torch ablaze against a wall of water is this wee moment here...
The way Earl nailed Ben's face is priceless. Sure it's stunned, but it also suggests he wants to ask the main woman in his life if he can just finish his comic book. I think we have all been there.
