Syd Shores did Jack no favors on this page. Comparing pencils to inks is positively frightening.
It's safe to say that Shores was unable to accomplish what he set out to do in panel 1. That panel screams "Ink me, joltin' Joe!" But Syd did a great job on panel 2, and panel 3 looks as good as the pencils.
No argument. But I bet Vince C would have erased all those background figures. At least Shores inked what was there! Although Stan's dialog did a number on a lot of it.
