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 Torchs 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.
