Pages 7, 10, 11.

Artist: Ron Wilson
Inker: Pablo Marcos

     Originally, I was just going to buy the last of these three pages, but once my wife pointed out what a nice vignette they make I couldn't resist getting the set (I picked these up in May, 2003). This has been professionally framed and is up on a living room wall (as opposed to the rest of my art, which is downstairs in the basement in my study/comic room area).
     In any case, this set treads a fine line between the bitterly humorous Ben Grimm and the self-pitying Thing. Very often writers slide too far into either extreme and Ben is either depressing to read or way too flippant, but the writer here (Marv Wolfman) really had a nice grasp on Ben. The line-up is my favorite panel from this story (I had a scan of it from the comic book up on the web page long before I saw this for sale), and the fingerprinting is fun, as are the reactions of the various officers. For those true comic fans out there, this took place circa Fantastic Four 190 or so, when the Fantastic Four had just broken up, which is why Ben seems very alone and more depressed than usual.
     As an aside, in case you're wondering, pages 8 and 9 were advertisements, so we're missing nothing here between the first and second pages.
