Great moments in off-panel storytelling

It's not just contemporary comics which have this problem; check out Don Heck in Tales of Suspense#1 (1959):

Boy, that was a close one! You almost had an action scene on your hands, to say nothing of depicting an world inhabited by mechanical men! I wonder if the scripter (Stan Lee?) was trying to make the pages seem more exciting by hinting at greater perils we hadn't witnessed. Regardless, the writer and artist were clearly living worlds apart.
