inked over kirby pencils

are pages like this inked over actual Kirby pencils or were they light-boxed penciled over Kirby's and then inked?

Sadly

The penciled pages were inked. There are quite a number of pencil photocopies around, and with any luck maybe Jeremy Kirby has a bunch that would fill in the gaps. Kirby's pencils were wonderful on this run of books, very tight and detailed. The inking was trying to be faithful, but not up to the job.
The Kirby Museum has a good sized gallery of CV pencil copies, but none from this issue.
