Now, Jack Kirby could draw anything; his talent was unlimited. So, when he chooses to create a photomontage, it’s because he likes the effect, not because he’s trying to portray something he can’t draw. I think the reprints have not done the photomontages credit, so I’m going to try to post a scan of the original page below. Wish me luck.

And of course Jean helps out on the cook’s day off!
With all the talk about table manners in the opening sequence, why doesn’t Hank McCoy get criticized for reading at the table.
Yes, Professor X can seem a little Machiavellian, but sometimes such things are needed.
You will notice that nowhere in the story does the artwork of Jack Kirby imply that the Avengers were out of town at the beginning of this story.
If Nemo is unable to take off the hood glued to his face, wouldn’t he have a humongous beard growing out from under it?
Captain America delivers some great lines in this issue:“I still remember how you sneered at democracy … how you called Americans soft … timid … too spoiled to fight for freedom! You mocked free men! You boasted of your contempt for liberty!! Feel my grip, Zemo! It’s the grip of a free man! Look into my eyes, tyrant! They’re the eyes of a man who would die for liberty! The world must never again make the fatal error of mistaking compassion for weakness!! And while I live, it won’t!!!”
And the Black Knight’s horse no longer belongs to him. Anything you use or get from committing a crime, like drug money or winged stallions, becomes the property of the state.
If the Magician just escaped from prison how did he arrange the Wasp fashion show?

Chic Stone could have inked these stories for 15 years or more and I would have been happy.
the Fantastic Four will soon have a cameo in a tale of the Watcher in Tales of Suspense
On page 16 Stan says the image of the Watcher is larger-than-life … but that’s his real size!
Happy Hogan was hopelessly outmatched against the Unicorn, which makes Iron Man’s victory all the more impressive.
Stan goes too overboard in explaining things. This is a case of less-is-more. Just tell us what the characters are going to do, please don’t go into detail; that just makes it sound too ridiculous!
And of course Happy’s allergic to hospital flowers ... but he was going to defend his boss's plant, no matter what!
Consider, for a moment, this story’s title, “The Watcher's Sacrifice!” Now consider the fact that there is no Mrs. Watcher. I hope you are now sufficiently enticed to go out and find the story and read it.
A few people have singled out the picture of Stan in the last panel. Note he has a beard as early as 1964. It would have still been normal for a man of Stan’s age to comb his hair back. Receding, yes! Balding, I don’t buy into that.
And the phrase: “And yet, some omnipotent power has so arranged the Universe that good must always prevail! For every mighty villain, there is a mightier hero!" I don’t really feel this is just a platitude. This is Marvel’s philosophy (and therefore Stan’s, I guess) as to how things are.

"Joseph, with those CD-Roms, are we able to display a comic page
horizontally on a laptop to fill the whole screen? (and I can turn the
screen vertically) If so, I think I'm interested in those."
