Crossroads of Infinity, by Jack Kirby

This awesomely psychedelic comic book panel is from Fantastic Four #51 (1966), by legendary artist Jack Kirby.

 "I've done it!!
I'm drifting into a world of limitless dimensions!!
It's the Crossroads of Infinity--
The junction to everywhere!"

Using experimental collage techniques, Kirby was trying to visually convey the inconceivable experience of multi-dimensional awareness.

I was never really a fan of the FF comics as a kid, but it was where Jack Kirby introduced my favorite character, the Silver Surfer.
