The Marvel Age of Comics
Jack Kirby’s uninked pencils from a page to FANTASTIC FOUR #49, the second appearance of the Silver Surfer.
Virtually all of Kirby’s border notes remain:
BASIC ENERGY—CAUSING (word obscured) ALICIA FEELS IT—SURFER SAYS THIS IS WASTE—
SAYS THAT SOUNDS CRUEL—THOSE THINGS SUPPLY US WITH HEALTH, CONTENTMENT, BEAUTY
HER FISTS ON HIM. SHE SAYS YOU—YOU VANDAL. HE SAYS YOU ARE THE FIRST CREATURE TO TALK THIS WAY
DO WE MEAN NOTHING? WHY DON’T YOU CHANGE ME TO ENERGY? WILL IT PLEASE YOU
SURFER RAISES HIS HAND HESITATINGLY—AS IF TO DESTROY HER—A
THEN HIS HAND GENTLY BRUSHES HER CHEEK—HE SAYS—ARE YOU—BEAUTY?
THEN CONFUSED—HE DRAWS AWAY—ALICIA SAYS YOU CAN FEEL EMOTIONS—YOU JUST NEVER USED
