Page from AVENGERS #33 by Don Heck.
A lot of production work was done throughout this page.
There is a long border note from Stan, that includes a little sketch of what he wants:
TOO BLACK - NEEDS WHITE HI-LITING. I WOULDN’T HAVE LAID OUT BALLOONS IN THAT POSITION IF I’D KNOWN IT WOULD BE SILHOUETTE. GIVE IT PLENTY OF OPEN HI-LITING. ALSO, CHANGE POSITION OF BALLOONS
MOVE BALLOON 1/4” TO RIGHT
LET HIS HEAD OVERLAP
TOO CLOSE
And a border note from Don Heck:
MORE EXPLOSIONS! HE’S GETTING AN ELECTRIC SHOCK

Splash page to AVENGERS #23 by Don Heck and John Romita.
This was Romita’s first job back at Marvel.
The opening caption has been completely cut out and relettered, so Stan decided to change something there. The same is true of the lead-in to the credits.
