I love this panel but, over this next few shots, look at how the quality of inks basically set this book back thirty issues, quality-wise. That’s Vince Colletta all over.

It’s weird; I knew a guy who knew a guy who was rich. Crazy-rich. And he was buying up as many Kirby pages he could find that Colletta inked and privately commissioning… well I dunno if that’s a thing he wants out there. Anyway, privately commissioning well-known artists to re-finish the pages for his own personal edification. Weird, right?

There’s a story in there, somewhere.
