From "What If: the Invisible Girl Died?" - What If? vol. 1 #42 (1983)

I read this as a 13 year old kid and it was the first time, I think, a comic hit me in the emotional guts. Reed, Ben, and Sue don't make it back in time from the Negative Zone to save Sue and she dies giving birth to Franklin...

The end of this issue is a killer...

I remember reading that FF one....the "tunnel vision" framing was very effective. I also remember this sequence, which affected me at the time....especially the "Mac" in the final frame:


OMG- this is my favorite comic book of all time. The first comic that ever made me cry. I love it, I love it, I love it. wow...
I don't have a scan of it, but the second-to-last page of Zot 33. (And then the last page.) Never before has letters page placement been used so artfully.
