Kirby denied credit for Marvel work.

"The Human Torch (joined by the Thing with ST 125, Oct 1964) received even less attention from its creator; Lieber wrote it and Dick Ayers who was most prominent as an inker, drew it from the beginning."
      - THE COMIC BOOK HEROES by Jacobs & Jones (1985)
 Maybe they hadn't bought an OVERSTREET in 9 years. OVERSTREET began crediting Kirby with the art for this story in  the 5th edition (1974) of the comic guide that changed the focus of the hobby by monetizing it.

  1. Important enough to credit where it originally was printed, but not who drew or created it! Hmmmm...
