Great Shakes

Sunday Meskin Measures.

Some time ago, I had to skip the Vigilante adventure from Action comics #65. Fortunatelly, I recieved a fresh scan from a grateful fan. The story is not signed, so it's probably not inked by Meskin himself. But it could be. His previous inkers were not all that great. The one he used for issue #66 was Joe Kubert and although he was the best inker Meskin had had in a long time, he had a distinct style. This... looks like Meskin drawing while inking. Every young artist should study this. The use of shapes, faces, body expressions, the way he draws the car as a jigsaw puzzle of black shapes on page 5...
