The Department of Pointless Questions. Fantastic Four #118.

Fantastic Four #118, Crystal and Diablo
As you'll see from other post of today, I'm in a Diablo state of mind. And that inevitably brings us to The Fantastic Four issue #118. It's a comic I have a lot of affection for, mostly because, as part of Marvel's short-lived move to longer comics, it features not one but two stories.

Not only that but its interior contains both Diablo and Crystal of the Inhumans, with Crystal in particular looking rather fetching in the guise of a fake goddess.

But, it strikes my eyeballs that there's an anatomical error with one of the characters on this cover. So, can you spot what it is?

As always the winner gets a great big Steve Does Comics No-Prize.

Remember, no ordinary blog hands out such awards - probably because no ordinary blog's so cheap and mean-spirited - so it's a non-prize you simply won't be able to get anywhere else.

Well, the obvious answer is that there's a bloke on that cover with the weirdest, most orangey skin condition ever, probably something not even Laboratoires Garnier could fix.....

That said, maybe it's the fact that Mr. Fantastic's left hand is drawn back to front?

I'm afraid that, if you'd ever seen David Dickinson's "Real Deal" you'd know the bloke on the cover has only the second most orangey skin condition ever.

You are however right about Mr Fantastic's hand being on the wrong way round. Well done, cerebus, I believe you go to the top of the Department of Pointless Questions' leaderboard.

Yeah! Reed has 2 right hands.

Well, it's obvious that his arm is just twisted around...somewhere....

Okay, it was worth a shot.

Crystal does indeed look hot as a pagan goddess. By the way, I guess Diablo was the only character that Stan Lee really disliked.
