Roz Kirby Inking Jack Kirby

You can see that the artwork above is signed by both Jack Kirby and Roz Kirby. Robert Steibel has posted this drawing and written a paragraph praising it over here.

Mark Evanier on his blog then weighed in on the drawing, writing that he believes most of the inking on this particular page was by Mr. Kirby himself. Mark's point is that Mrs. Kirby's inking was generally limited to tracing over the pencil lines with a pen. Or, when the Mrs. did ink with a brush it was very, very rudimentary brushwork, more basic than what is evident on this page. What Mark wrote is over here for you to read in greater detail.

Anyway, I like the drawing quite a bit and it would be a welcome addition to The Hayfamzone Collection. (You are hereby invited to view my Jack Kirby original artwork pages, over here.)
