Re-Inking Thor

Thor Pencils

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.

And no, I haven't forgotten about your wonderfully custom named monkey postcards. In fact, several of them are staring at me from my drawing board right now. Their eyes! Why won't they stop staring!?!
