You can't see very often samples of Kirby's pencils from early 50s. Great find!

Another Canidate for Recreation?

How would you like to see this piece finished? Hmmm...

What's on your mind, Frank?

What inking style? 40/50's, 60's or 70's?

Or simply Kirby/Fosco?

What's on my mind, Krackles?

The old 50's Simon and Kirby would be cool. Don't know if I could pull it off, but it doesn't mean I won't try. May wind up being simply Kirby/Fosco. Unless I can pencil it up and get a different inker to finish it--there's always that option.

Just saw...

I was thumbing through Jack Kirby's "Heroes and Villains" Black Magic Edition, and I saw who could pull off that Simon and Kirby of the 50's inking style. Alan Milgrom.

Good Call

That's a good call, Frank! According to another Theakston book, THE JACK KIRBY TREASURY, Volume 2, Amiable Al owns an unused Kirby cover for STRANGE WORLD OF YOUR DREAMS, still in the pencil stage, so he's probably a big S&K fan.

S&K Revisited

I want to get this piece on a board and get big Al to ink it S&K 50's style. What do you think Tommy K.? Can it be done?

All for Al

Milgrom got the right groove for Kirby, that's for sure.

Of course

Anything can be done if there is a will. I can supply full size output for lightboxing onto Bristol. If you mean for me to do it I wouldn't be able to do anything until the late August or September...
