AN EARLY HONING OF SYNOPSIS CRAFT WOULD BE A NECESSARY TOOL IN BUILDING THE HOUSE OF MARVEL.

This one-page retelling of the seven page "What was Gargantus"  from STRANGE TALES #80 is an early example.
From:
STRANGE TALES #85 - Kirby/Ayers cover - shipped March 1961
    "The Return of Gargantus" (13 Kirby/Ayers pages)
    "The Man Who Fell" (5 Reinman pages)
     "The Ape Man" (5 Ditko pages)

Reinman draws an impressive gypsy and a credible gypsy camp.
Ditko designs an entire prison island for his five-pager.
