SCOTT PILGRIM rocks; CASANOVA is the dog's bollocks; AIRWOLF, drop kicks to the face and punching bears are funny; and Vinnie Colletta is akin to a war criminal in our eyes. It's the comic blogger law.<BR/><BR/>Do keep up, 007.Markhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17791352096505994671noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-79294016899081264032008-04-10T22:56:00.000+01:002008-04-10T22:56:00.000+01:00Oh maybe it was Royer.

Maybe he had a bit more time, maybe he knew Kirby was on to him (he'd been kicked off the last year or so of THOR thanks to Steve Ditko threatening Stan Lee he'd warn Kirby about the erasing of backgrounds, I heard: and Bill Everett's inks over Kirby were fantastic), but his work in NEW GODS and MR MIRACLE, etc, has a nice, chunky, almost-Chic Stone quality to some of it.<BR/><BR/>But when Royer took over, things really flew to another level.Markhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17791352096505994671noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-64557236978229486812008-04-10T21:58:00.000+01:002008-04-10T21:58:00.000+01:00Who inked the Mr. Miracle stuff, Vince Colletta?
