There was a series of articles in THE JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR based on the thesis that there were many times when Lee and Kirby "collaborated" (the quotation marks are the article writer's, not mine) that the art and dialogue did not mesh correctly. The original art for the Inhumans backup in THOR #147 is showcased in the first article as proof. I'm not sure if that falls under the fair use loophole to copyright infringement because of the scholarly 8 paragraph article that accompanied it or because it is just one episode of a multipart story. Hopefully it is the latter...
It will cost you $2.95 to find out. Unlike the Eddie Campbell THOR article it is not part of the free preview. Which reminds me, the Campbell quotes complimenting Colletta from this week's earlier posts are only in the print version not the digital version. Don't worry, none of the other 15 paragraphs were edited out.

A Kirby Museum blog used to repeatedly demand proof that Stan Lee was a good writer. Does this count?
THE COMIC BOOK HEROES, a mid Eighties appreciation of the Silver Age of comics by Will Jacobs and Gerard Jones, has 12 pages (out of 285) devoted to the FANTASTIC FOUR. #51 is not mentioned in the book.
