After ripping Ross Andru twice, you criticize "Mickey Demeo's" Kirby inks. Funny part is, "Mickey Demeo" was the alias of Mike Esposito, Ross Andru's long-time inker. Did you like Andru any better when someone else inked him? Maybe it was just Esposito making Andru look bad to you.

Besides, Andru didn't draw that Strange Tales Annual #2, it was way too early for that. He was too busy making Wonder Woman unreadable.

You're right -- I forgot Demo was Esposito. But still I never much liked Andru. Metal Men maybe. And I never got that ST issue, to this day.

I pulled my copy of ST Annual #2 and it credits Jack Kirby pencils and Steve Ditko as inker. The CBDB credits Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby with the cover.

Robby Reed said...

I made that correction -- the book was done by Kirby/Ditko, not Ross Andru.

" Marvel Collector's Item Classics, October 1963. When I saw it on the stands, I thought I recognized it -- from television"

Obviously you meant October 1967

Robby Reed said...

Yes, 1967. Thank you, correction made. When I get something wrong it usually involves a number. I'm spastic that way.
