I am extremely impressed with Iron Mans' ability to blink the eyeholes in his mask!

Also, seeing this art reminds of a time I ran into Kirby in San Diego and asked him if there were any inkers he didn't like seeing on his work. I think he said something gentlemanly like "Nah, how about you?". I told him I didn't like Roussos (who inked Avengers 4). Whereupon the mighty Jack Kirby looked up at me with furriwed brow and said with disbelief "You didn't like Inky?", like I had insulted his brother.

Kirby never much cared who inked him. Mike Royer was his favorite though.

LOVE the animations! Since I'm a huge fan of the 1966 MARVEL SUPERHEROES cartoons...

Keep it up!

Thanks Al. That's what I was going for!

Always HATED Royer inks. They exagerrated every part of Jack's art that was unappealling to casual readers. Kirby was one of those extreme talents who needed the right tempering in the inks and dialoging to remain palatable.

Robby Reed said...

I was never a Royer fan either. I actually liked Coletta inking Kirby, although I'm almost afraid to say it out loud.

I actually had that record. It's possible I still do, somewhere. The reprint comic (which was in fine condition) is long gone, though. If recollection serves, I sold it thinking, "It's a reprint, it'll never be worth that much" Yeah, just TRY to find one now.

Not sure why you chose to redesign the album cover as a Power Record from the 1970s, though. This is bound to confuse people who will actually search for this version thinking it's real.

Robby Reed said...

This site is rife with cover mash-ups of every kind. I don't think anyone will be confused. Hope not.

Re: Human element. YES, I do want to see only the heroes. They are allowed to be "human" even in masks, etc. I find secret identities hopelessly boring. They serve as info dumps, something I can't stand. Raw exposition bores the hell out of me. I want to see every hero on every page. Even in team books. Gardner Fox did it in JLA, Kirby did it for 100 issues of FF, so it CAN be done.

Dennis said...

Yes, you have tons of mash-ups. But most of them are less obscure than that particular LP "read-along" record that pre-dated the Power Records Book-and-Record sets by almost a decade. Usually you show us your source material. In this case you didn't. Heck, you didn't even mention the actual record. Some folks might even think the audio track came from the Marvel Super-Heroes cartoon from 1966.

Dennis said...

Adding to the confusion is the very nature of those read-along record/books themselves. They're ALREADY mash-ups of an existing comic book cover.

Robby Reed said...

You're right, I usually so show the original source material. But in this case, I do not HAVE the original source material, just a copy of the audio. If you have the original cover, send it to me and I will include it on the page.

Image received, and posted! Thanks Dennis.
