Story Time

Sunday Meskin Measures.

Two Meskin stories from early issues of My Greatest Adventure. Th art in the first one is so slicj it is hard to imagine it is completely by the same artist. The second story was used for years on the Mort Meskin website to show Meskin's story telling mastery.

You're right, the first story is certainly slickly inked...yet the strokes on things like suit drapery have that distinctive Meskin shape. Could it be that he was deliberately trying to follow the DC house style? Maybe the editor suggested he do so, or maybe he felt he needed to "slick up" for DC.

Whatever the case, that second story is prime Meskin being Meskin. Beautiful!

Yes, the consensus is that Meskin slicked up himself there.
