Hi Tom. Inks here are not Meskin, but rather Kirby.

Re: What...?

Hi Shane. The miscellaneous scan shows to Christies auction identification sticker. Since this site is part of the Kirby Museum site, having such data may help in research.

How do we know?

I love this too! It's a standout, and the inking really fits, adding much to the tone. I'm going to have to explore Jack's inking on this site as much as I can to get a better handle on the differences between he and Joe.

But how do we know it's Jack? If this can be articulated, I'd be very interested!
