This is a beautiful page that adds a nice touch of exciting character development, but the story doesn't really suffer much for its exclusion.
1) Was the original page ever inked, or did it remain in its pencils-only form?
2) Where is the original page now?
...I think I just saw a tumbleweed roll by here.
Lol. Maybe Tom is on vacation or something.
He's at the NYC comic con. Getting more awesome Kirby scans.
Let's hope he posts some of 'em soon; 'cause you're right, it has been too quiet around here lately!
Yes was there since last Thursday archiving Kirby art for your online delight. Wasn't the biggest success, only archiving about 20 new pages but some good additions including an unused cover to Mister Miracle #7 from Albert Moy.
I'll start adding a few tonight or tomorrow. Been extremely busy with my "real" job and its been eating into my free time to work on the site...
Good to have you back, Tom. Boy, can I ever relate to what you say about "real jobs" cutting into our free time! Responsibility sucks!! Can't wait to see the new pages though. I think that Mister Miracle cover has previously been printed in JACK KIRBY MASTERWORKS. I don't have a copy of the book, but Rob Steibel posted it on his excellent Kirby Dynamics blog a few weeks ago, so it's nice to have a chance to get a close-up look at the original!
