...Jack and Joe you devils you!
Can't see this as inked by Kirby. Looks like Joe Simon inks to me.
I can see why you feel it looks like Simon with the finer lines. The credit came from the GDB where it indicates that the inker credit was provided by Greg Theakston. Anyone else agree that Simon had a hand in this cover?
Like a lot of S&K work I would bet there are at least two hands on this. The woman's dress might show Kirby's hand. Her face looks like it was inked by Joe Simon.
Although published much later I think this art dates to the late '40s.
Been awfully quiet here lately. A few days since a new page has been added.
I adding a page tonight to New Gods 8 with pencil comparisons. Been really busy at my "real" job plus my freetime has been consumed working on a secret Kirby project that will be unveiled at Comic Con...
Hasn't Tom been out and about hitting conventions is search of more pages to scan? What would be great would be if not to far down the road there was some way to scan a page at a convention and have the scanner set up in a network with the site here so the image went right to the site.
I wish it was that easy to post pages instantly. There would be hundreds of pages more on the site if that was the case.
You never know Tom. I recall twenty-five years ago when computers where first installed in the place I work and after working with the system for a couple of days I happened to say to a manager, "Wouldn't it be great if the screen was the keyboard?" It wasn't more than four or five years later that almost every computer in the place was replaced by touch screens.
I'm about 100% positive an Earth man will never set foot on Mars, but I bet it won't be long before you could have files set up to receive scans made at a convention. You identify the page (say Kamandi #1 page six) make the scan and it shoots off to a file marked Kamandi.
If that's the case, I wouldn't want to stop him from prospecting. Although I do see Tom's put up another nugget in the gallery.
