Well, so much for me going a bit less complicated on the next few covers. My original intent had been to draw just the Thing on the front of this FF #1 blank sketch variant cover. But, my love of old Fantastic Four stories (both by Lee/Kirby and, even more, by John Byrne) got in the way and I wound up going just a bit crazier than I had intended. Doh!
Ah, well. It was an absolute blast to do!
