Beautiful LARGE ART Kirby/Sinnott Captain America page. Normally I prefer Giacoia's inks on Kirby's Cap stuff, but Joltin' Joe did an incredibly fine job on this one. And the big 12 x 18" art size really amplifies the impact of Jack's work.

It ain't easy

This page shows that even a technical wizard like Joe Sinnott had some difficulty inking the concentric oval rings on Captain America's shield. It isn't easy changing horses in mid-stream. Sinnott handels those tight turn arounds better than anyone, but he still struggles to stay in the groove.

No sin noted!

Joe Sinnott stated several times that, until recently, he never used a french curve, he worked exclusively free hand.

free hand

if sinnott wuz inking cap's shield free-hand, that's infinitely better than most other inkers prolly did with a french curve! check cap's shield in any ayers- or reinman-inked page...blechh!

that being said, for me, i still prefer giacoia and shore's cap to sinnott's.
