Group Description

If you're a fan of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's epic run on the Mighty Thor, you've heard (and maybe even share) the complaints about the inking style of Vince Colletta. Well, now is your chance to put your ink where your mouth is and have some fun re-embellishing a select page of Kirby's dynamic artistry!
Thanks to the assistance of John Morrow, publisher of The Jack Kirby Collector, I've posted a photostat of Jack Kirby's pencils from a page of Thor issue 144 for you to ink, experiment, and play with.
Issue 49 of the Jack Kirby Collector is dedicated to Thor, and Mr. Morrow has indicated he may run select examples of the inked pages submitted to this group!*
Feel free to use the discussions in this group to share your thoughts or links about Kirby, Thor, inking tips and techniques, and even the infamy of the prolific one himself~~Vince"the Prince" Colletta.
Thor Pencils
Here is the page as inked by Colletta (thanks to jteethy for posting this):
The images in this group will be limited to your inked/black and white interpretations of the page shown above, or single panels from this page. If you have other samples of Kirby inspired artwork or re-inked Kirby pages you have created, please feel free to post links to them in a discussion thread.
This group is open to kids, pros, novices, and anyone wanting to give it a try.
Thanks and have fun!

*space in the issue is limited, of course, and any potential candidates would need to be done before the end of June.
