My tribute to Everett Raymond Kinstler. I love Ray's Western comics -- and am particularly crazy for his version of Zorro. I do wish this were better drawn -- Silvertip has some loooong legs....
A tip of the hat to Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four -- the Ayers-inked-era, it seems! My tear sheet of this was a bit more tanned than typical, and had some other issues as well, so I cleaned it up in Photoshop -- printed in black and white -- might be fun to color some time.
I've been a fan of Joe Staton's work since I first saw it -- and first saw it in the Charlton issues of E-MAN. Here's my tribute. No idea what's going on with that curved border at the bottom. Can't imagine I drew it that way -- but the original art is long gone, so I can't check.
There are still at least a half dozen covers I've not shown here -- but they'll have to wait for another scanning session. In the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed this blast from the past. If you want to get a little more background on my time at TBG, you'll find it in that upcoming issue of ALTER EGO I mentioned earlier. I'll be sure to plug it here when it is published.
