Chic Stone

I think that Stone is one of my favourite embellishers to work with Kirby, but I feel that this piece is a slightly rushed job. The overall look is great as usual, but there are some strokes that has not the usual quality in Stone. In fact, he had to correct some of them in the face.

Anyway, it's a historical piece and we're very lucky to be able to enjoy the details thanks to the incredible quality of the scan and the possibility to zoom it.

I just have good things to

I just have good things to say about this page, as with most of Stone's work.
The wide brushstroke outlines of Alicia are simply incredible.

Ben's Bust

IMO, the sculpture of the Thing foreshadows the look he attained in the Coletta and Sinnott years. Elsewhere is evidence that even during the Ayers period, Jack drew the Thing's skin more as rocky plates than as the lumpy clay look we see after inking for most of the first 4-5 years. I'm curious as to why Chic didn't ink the Thing more like this, and how much of that is attributable to the way Jack might have drawn him in those days.
