Mr. Royer

Always thought it was a cool effect (and deceptively simple) of having key panels with the heavier panel border. I still steal it.

Another directly opposite trick is to get rid of the panel borders altogether.
Simple and effective.

The Great Roy Crane

Roy Crane often used both heavy outlines, and no outlines on the same page.

Royer - ink artist

As both letterer and ink artist, Mike had an unprecedented aesthetic influence on Kirby's published work. The Forever People story "I'll Find You In Yesterday!" is a prime example. I love his decisions regarding the panel borders/negative space.

Mr. Royer

I totally agree. "I'll Find You In Yesterday" was a seminal influence on me when it came out so long ago. I knew it was Kirby but the look Mike gave it totally divorced it from Jacks previous era.

No limits for Kirby

Here's probably one of the most incredible fight sequences drawn by Kirby.
It reads like a choreography and the last panel, with Cap circling his "prey", is breathtaking!
