I completely agree. Adkins is right up there with Royer as the best inker ever to work on Kirby's pencils.
It's fun and interesting to see all the various styles inkers imposed on Kirby, but bottom line I'm a far bigger fan of Kirby's unique look than I am in seeing how another artist interprets what Kirby gave them.

This is the file of the comic, which contained two stories and a back up which was a short monster story. All in black and white. The edition was awful, the worst I ever saw, but at least you could enjoy the inking without the distraction of the color.
