Thanks for those.

I was aware of Kubert's Tarzan and Hawkman work, but maybe it's because I so strongly associate him with DC's Battle Books.

BTW, have you read Bill Schelly's Kubert biography, "Man of Rock"? (no jokes, please).

Here's a video of someone leafing through it:

Why not indeed? Watchmen, although very good, isn't perfect and Moore - it'll be a shock to him - isn't God. It is an ambitious if flawed tale, and yeah a landmark one. There have been better epic stories since then, though Moore thinks he has yet to be topped.

But not untouchable. The movie was hit and miss but it did a good job of translating the story to screen, and , I was in favor of dumping the squid. It would not work on film and barely worked in the comic.

My only exposure to Infantino was through his lengthy run on Marvel's STAR WARS comic. Many fans didn't care for his renderings of those characters but I loved his distinctive style.

We profoundly pity those Know-It-All's-Without-a-Cosmic-Clue, Phelpsie, 'cause - whilst
his professional personality might not have endeared him to many behind the scenes -



Mr. Infantino's earlier distinctive style was every bit as transformative as Curt Swan & Murphy
Anderson
for those weened on late 50s/early 60s D.C. comics pre-Stan, Jack and Steve's
Marvel Age revolutionary magik.

Hey I have that picture on the cover of a compendium of Batman stories from the beginning into the 70's. always loved the cover.

That is the short cloaked pre Neal Adams, Irv Novick, and Bob Brown Batman and Robin. Designed to be in tune with the Adam West/Burt Ward television series.

Infantino's art was greatly dependent on his inker, compare his work inked by Murphy Anderson with the work he did on Star Wars.

You most likely know Infantino's work better than I do, Gary, but in the Star Wars comics I mentioned, Bob Wiacek, Terry Austin, and Gene Day all inked Infantino's work but his individuality came through regardless of who assisted in the art chores. Maybe Anderson's inking softened the rather angular look of Infantino's art?

I'm fairly certain that Batman illustration is inked by Anderson.

We agree with Gary's appraisal above.

As to that, is there ANY artist whose work wasn't seminally affected by his inker?

The King with Joe Sinnott as opposed to Vince Colletta, fer instance?

I have to be one of the few who liked Vinny's inks on Thor.
