INKS....

SIGH.... I'm sure that they're some fantastic pencils under the overly rushed and sloppy Roussos inks!

Sigh

Really. Who knows what was in the background. How long did it take George to ink this book? An hour? Ugh.

Roussos

He could be ok on occasion. Here he's worse than Colleta on a bad day. Those lines forming the outline of the walls in panel 1, make no sense. It looks like they're in a room for designed for dwarfs!

Good Old Days!

I find you very unfair with Roussos.

Look at this mess:

Also, I could argue that Roussos' work on a bad day is better than Colletta's on a good day but it wouldn't be much of an achievement nonetheless as there's no such thing as a Colletta's good day.

re: Roussos

Well if Roussos is following and inking what Jack drew, that's not Roussos fault for that wall. Jack would do that kind of thing every so often. Look at FF 58 pages 12, panel 5, page 14, panel 2 and page 15, panel 1. And that's Joe Sinnott inking.

Also...

... at this point in Jack's output wasn't he drawing like 400 pages a month? At the rate he was pumping out work it's not surprising there were some, shall we say, less than detailed pages?

re: Also...

Yeah, that's true, Ken, and a good point. Jack was a machine--pretty much it seems drawing just 'bout everything at Marvel.
