Taking It Slow

Sunday Quick Fix.

I am usually to busy in the weekends to do a lot of commentary, but after reading this week's installment of Mort Meskin's Johnny Quick (from Adventur Comics #129), I have to remark how great this period of Meskin's art is. I know that Joack Kirby is hailed as one of the big action artists of his generation and he certainly did fight sequences like noone, but panel for panel I think there are very few comics around this time that have so much well orchestrated action in them... except maybe Jack Cole's Plastic Man. So many comics then and now) were little more than people standng around and talking. Here the story goes from action sequence to action sequence. It almost makes you wonder what the script must have loked like.
