Winner for "Best Tony Stark Face" for 1973!

In connection to my previous post, the last page of Iron Man v1 #61 is reprinted below.

What really sells this page is Tony's face in the last panel. It is basically indescribable, but it conveys shock, dismay, mild panic (?), and a slew of other emotions. What's also funny is that the tag for next month's issue with the villain Whiplash has an ironic aspect, because the black lines to the right of Stark's head and his expression of pain makes it looks like he might actually have whiplash.

On a related bizarre comic note, you can find the most terrifying thing I've ever seen in a comic book over at the Living Between Wednesdays blog.
