Jack Kirby's Thor!!!




Jack Kirby. Maybe you've heard of him? He's famous for designing and creating some of the most memorable comic book characters in history! My favorite was his Thor interpretation! Ivan Brandon ( of NYC Mech, Crossbronx, 24/7 ] found a link that showcased a full size penciled page drawn by the King himself. I had to take a stab at inking it! In one hour and twenty minutes I was finished! The time flew by - probably because his work is just so much fun to ink! Great shapes and sweeps! Thanks Ivan!!! - Long live the King!

Very intersting a real classic as Kirby Thor revamped with a nowdays ink approach!

Good work Dan your approachreally fit the King pencils! The thing I really like most here is you've been able to keep ALL the energy and the Dynamic feeling the pencil have!!!! Not easy man not easy at all...I saw very good inker not doing the same over John Buscema or Kirby pencil in the past ;-)
