Ff/Iron Man: Big in Japan 2 page 5

A couple of things I especially enjoy about this page. In the back behind Reed, there is a billboard for Bob the slug. The Japanese sign says BoBu, or Bob. It seems to be some sort of Bob parlor, and one can only guess what they do inside. The Baby picture that his right hand is resting on says Baby Chikkuri. I don't know what that means.
I like his elastic body stretched out all over the frame, in which buildings are and other details are rather realistically drawn. As I pointed out another time, that is a definite Manga style point. The street is empty except for a lone cat that seems to be watching the action.
Also, it's interesting that the fantastic foursome all wear the same kind of comfortable boots with side-to-side ridges that Batman does.
