I'm wondering if this might be inked by Marvin Stein. The fussy pen touch ups in the forest look like Joe Simon. The brush work looks assured and confident. I see similarities in the faces to the Stein inked Space Busters pieces.
Who ever is wielding the brush here is a mature confident brush-man, and it's not Simon or Kirby as far as I can tell.
I like the combo of dry-brush and spotted blobs around the fireballs with white-out. Thats a nice organic effect.
