You would have thought that he'd have wanted to write and illustrate a Herculean book for the 100th issue of FF. In those days, how many men had created, written, and illustrated 100 straight issues of a single superhero title?
But he was chafing under the conditions at Marvel and had opted to leave. So I've always figured that the 100th issue of FANTASTIC FOUR was just a shade of what it would have been if he'd not been robbed of the credit that should have been his.
