Photocopy is a great addition!

It allows comparation with Mike's work, so we can see how faithfully he was with Jack's pencils...

High Fidelity

Ferran is right. Royer's flexibility of technique and sensitivity to the demands of Jack's individual style were absolutely unrivalled. No one in the world could have done a better job of inking Kirby's brilliant 1970s output.

I didn't realize there was a pencil photocopy tab on this page. Just found out yesterday. What other pages have this feature? I know about the Captain America article where this is applied.

I see it's gone beyond the CA article and is applied to the gallery. Cool!

Design layout

The gallery page could do with another layout to allow for a more obvious access to original art, pencils, recreations, even a printed version?
Keeping the tab to switch from the front and back of the original art only.

Re: Design Layout

I'm open to suggestions that keeps the Gallery section as an historical and research archive to study the original art created by the hand of Kirby. I feel mixing in recreations would compromise this effort and add confusion as to what was done by Kirby and what wasn't. This is why Creations is a separate section of the website.

The photocopies apply since they were made by Kirby and document the pencil stage of the creation of the original art. It could be argued that printed version is an historical record of the end product that was colored by the colorist. If this is added a colorist credit is needed.

Design of creation

I get your idea for the creations and the focus on original art.
Linking pages is good for referencement so maybe just a link would do.
