No. 1
Illustrated by BILL EVERETT
This cover, featuring SYLVESTER P. SMYTHE's first appearance, was designed and layed out by JOHN SEVERIN. When John brought the layout in and found out how little the publisher was willing to pay for the finished painting, he declined to do it and the layout was passed on to Bill, who created this interpretation. Bill created the SUB-MARINER for Marvel Comics in the 1930's and was a constant CRACKED contributor in the 50's.
