Fantastic sample!

Very nice sample of an unique collaboration between two geniouses!

We're lucky to enjoy a scan so good and with so much resolution as this one. This allow us to discover the corrections in the face of the guy in panel 1 and in the face of Sky Masters in panel 3, and enjoy the craft of Wally Wood, a master of the mood and lighting.

Not so unique but with some unique result

Wood inked Kirby on several other projects during their time working for Marvel and DC.
Also, he is known for his tendancy to overpower the penciller and I remember reading an article where Wood said that he kind of regreted not having understood earlier that the best way is to ink Kirby as faithfully as possible (or at least that he found great pleasure in doing so).

Unfortunately, I don't remember which work he was refering to… Probably one of the last job he did on Kirby.

Anyway, no matter what is your preference, Kirby + Wood is always a great combination !
