Those are hard!

Have you ever tried to do those?! All those perfect near-parallels, its a bitch. Really makes you respect Sinnott & Royer.

Lines

Yes I do them and they ARE tough to get them to look right. Really straight lines that start thick and end in a razor-point. Lots and lots of practice with a brush!

Missing text?

OK, who can fill in the missing text in the second line of the main text box?

I see this treasury on sale at the local comic shop when I visit and I think "I should buy that". Dang, I really need to. Never read it when it came out, but did buy Machine Man #1+ when they came out,

"repetitious sound which

"repetitious sound which hypnotizes all..."
It's there under the white-out. I'm not sure why the white-out is there because that's also the published text. Rand has a photocopy of the penciled page and it would be interesting to see that.

Lettering correction

Jack spelled it "repititious", which the letterer kept, until it was later corrected by whiting out everything but the vertical from the mistaken I and turned into the basis for the E. The glued-on correction must have fallen off. There's a blue pencil correction note noting the E at the top of the page.

I'd point out repititious is the accepted older form.

I always think

...the full page panel with just one corner out for panel 2 is a weak layout. It never seems to work very well. There's a Silver Star page like that, where the small panel is upper left IIRC, & its a very weak near-splash by Jack standards. This one is not so hot either. However you spell it, repetitious is the right word for those dull monkey backs and the small panel that is the exact same scene.
