Here's the Mighty Thor comin' at ya courtesy of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta.
In my estimation, Kirby's all-time best and greatest inker was Joe Sinnott. Colletta, on the other hand, didn't always ink everything that Jack drew and sometimes omitted figures, buildings and other background objects. Vince wasn't the best inker in the business but he was apparently one of the fastest and thus, got a lot of assignments on work that had an incredibly short deadline. He inked tons of comic book pages over the course of his life and while he was never my favorite, I must admit that his work seemed perfectly suited to Kirby's pencils on THOR. Not on any other Kirby illustrated title, just THOR. Somehow, for me, that combination worked.
