… but I prefer Kirby's drawings.
Jacks sense of color even shows up in the pieces he selected in putting these together.
That's a good point, Ken. This collage probably would have been more effective if it had been printed in color. Imagine how good this could have looked if Jack had access to modern Photoshop image-manipulation technology to smooth out the rough spots and blend all the different elements seamlessly.
Ohhh--John?--do I detect a project for someone?
Do 'er up and drop Metron in there with the dialogue and all.
No, I meant someone who actually has some computer graphics ability (lol). That ain't me, brother!
It was worth a try. Okay--who wants to step up?
I may take a crack at it when I get the time.
Wouldn't want to take time away from adding more art and features to all on WiK.
I also have a new 2 page story from Forever People that I recreated the pencils for years ago and finally handed off to Mr. Royer at SDCCI. You'll see the results later this month or next.
I take it that was something that was originally inked by Colletta, right?
The collage work which was so wonderful in B&W is incredible in colour. I'd love to have a book collecting all of them. I prefer them minus the character figures, but would also liked to have seen DC step up and present them full colour in the omnibus books.
On occasion the comic books presented the collage work with colour added by the colourist, but what was the first time a Kirby collage was presented in full process colour? Maybe the Hunger Dogs graphic novel?
