Chris Rule

The page has Chris Rule's name written on the upper right corner. And it doesn't look like Ayers. Note for example the man's clothing in panel three.

Definitely not Ayers. This is the inker generally identified as George Klein (IMO correctly).

One thing I notice is the one page here at WHAT IF which is identified as being inked by Klein, ST #91 page 4, shows Klein using a pen for major portions of his background work.

The same guy?

Chris Rule used to be

Chris Rule used to be identified as the FF #1-2 inker. Which is this guy here, I think very obviously. So it appears that someone taking that to be correct has written his name on the original. Could've been written 20 years ago. The Klein theory only took off at the end of the '90s.

Some Brodsky pages were just sold on Heritage attributed to Klein. What a tangled web.

...we can assume that Chris Rule didn't write his own name on this page?
Thanks, Chrissie.
