My Name’s On It But I Didn’t Draw That

Thor1

While going through some comics I just noticed that this panel as published in WORLD’S GREATEST COMIC MAGAZINE #8 has been substantially reworked from my and Terry Beatty’s original art. I don’t know why the change got made; perhaps my exaggerated Kirby-style hand of THOR was a bit much? A closer look reveals all the figures in this panel have been reworked. The THING’s arm thrown away from the body is an improvement, but I have to say the redrawn THOR and TORCH seem more Trimpe than Kirby to my eye.

    Pure sweetness, the hand is wicked.

    Wow, that’s a significant change. I liked yours better, definitely more like Kirby.

    It’s always interesting to me to see these little snapshots of changes behind the scenes. Thanks for sharing.

    How odd. I wonder why the change was made. It seems like an awful lot of work for no apparent reason. It’s not like you got any of character designs wrong.
