Number 2008: Uncanny Joe Sinnott
Later in his career Joe did some magnificent inking for Jack Kirby and other artists. We also saw his own pencil and ink art in comics like Treasure Chest of Fun and Facts, and other publishers.
I have gotta be me and point out a fubar in “Find a Pin and Pick it Up!” page two, where the BOOKS sign is supposed to be reverse lettering. Someone wasn’t paying attention. I would have imagined editor Stan Lee looking at it after Joe left the office, then grabbing another artist to “fix this, willya?” as I understood was his wont. Somehow it slipped through to amuse sourball Pappy 64 years later.
In order, stories are from Uncanny Tales #’s 13, 14 and 16, all from 1953.
