Man, when it comes to classic comics, there's probably never been a better dream team than Lee/Kirby/Sinnott. Those guys were made to work with each other (okay, at least for a while!).

Drew-

Absolutely! I can't think of a more incredible team off the top of my head. Kirby's pencils never looked better than when Joe was inking them. In fact, considering how long Joe stuck around to ink the F.F. in various stints over the years (all the way into the 1990's), I actually consider him the real "visual heart and soul" of the Fantastic Four. No matter who he inked over, whether it was John Buscema, Rich Buckler, George Perez, Keith Pollard, or Ron Frenz, they all seemed visually connected through his amazing lines.

I recently ordered a bio of Joe Sinnott from Amazon, and look forward to reading it. I'll be sure to post a review as soon as I get through it.

I completely agree. Joe added a lot of class to a book that had quite a few ups and downs (as any that has run as long as it has).

What's the name of the book on Sinnott?

I'm personally very anxious to get my hands on Evanier's Kirby book!

The name of the book is Brush Strokes With Greatness: The Life Art Of Joe Sinnott. Click on the link and it'll take you right to the page. Amazon says they've only got three copies remaining at the $12.21 price. Yeah, I'll probably get the Evanier book on Kirby as well, though the cover design didn't exactly blow me away (not a good sign).

Mark-- know why your blog is so darn annoying? Because every day, you have another post that makes me want to buy more comics! I used to be a well-balanced, financially solvent individual, and now find my imagination overrun by your wonderful page scans, winning prose, and fascinating links. Stupid jerk-- you can't just be like other blogs and have a few clinker postings, oh NO-- you insist on always making your work FUN and INTERESTING. Loser.

And, um, thanks. (:

Mwa-Ha-Ha-Haaaaaa!

I-I'm sorry, Cinephile! I'll try harder to bland things up! Honest!

Seriously, thanks for your kind (yet unkind) words. It's good to know the effort is appreciated.

...and that I'm forcing you to buy more comics!

Mwa-HA-HAAAAAAAAaaaaaa.....
