Human Torch 36 (1953) Page 5 original artwork by Dick Ayers with alterations by Torch cover artist Carl Burgos and margin note "Fix Flame" by editor Stan Lee.

The comics code of the time decreed that the Torch’s limbs should always be visible beneath the flames and not portrayed as if they were ‘burning’. This was Ayers first work on the Human Torch, thus the involvement of three key individuals in one unique artwork.
