Royer Re-Do's

Although Frank Giacoia was generally one of the best inkers Kirby ever had, I thought his work on this book was a little bit flat and heavy-handed in some spots. It might be fun to have Mike Royer re-do a couple of the less effective Giacoia-inked/Costanza-lettered pages in his own inimitable style. I'm of the opinion that if Mike had inked and lettered this particular tabloid, it would have made an already great book even better. The same argument could be made for the BICENTENNIAL BATTLES treasury. There were some sweet pages in there from Smith and Romita, but Trimpe's inks left a lot to be desired, and the whole thing could have benefitted greatly from the CONSISTENCY which Mike would have brought to it. So that's my suggestion for future Royer re-creations: some pages from the 2001 and BICENTENNIAL BATTLES tabloids.
