I only remember the issue of FF with Ego the living planet coming out a bit muddy, maybe I got a bad printed copy, that happens. Everything else was top drawer art-wise. I liked the earlier issues as well with Sinnott, and especially liked #220-221 at the time and still now. If I had one piece of '80s FF art it'd be the Byrne & Sinnott cover of #220. There were aspects of Terry Austin's style I wasn't crazy about, he could be over-powering, like on Paul Smith I'd say he was. Definitely best on a Brian Bolland and Art Adams though, and If he did a Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal comic I really want that!

The only inker I never knew I needed over JB was Janson, and after that, I
wanted to see EVERYONE ink his work. Still do. I love the process.

"Joe was quite a bit older(mostly retired I would guess)"

---

In '81 he was still pretty active - he had moved from FF to a few-year stint on AVENGERS and other books.

Wistful Friday ...

I'm as enamored as the next guy with all the advancements made in comic art and its production (when used well) but i sure do miss the evidence of signature brush work in inking and how it differed between artists.  < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">

But as i've said before, it's not just in comics. Movie making and music suffer the same homogenization ...

I have great affection for Joltin' Joe's inks over JB.  Loved how it was still JB, but still strongly Joe, too.

As a kid, I always felt that Joe Sinnott was the Marvel look inker. Avengers and FF looked consistent no matter who the penciler was.

Joe Sinnott inked Ron Frenz on Thor years after that, and did a great job.

Byrne is still my preferred inker over Byrne pencils. Joe Sinnot worked really well over Kirby, but I found his style overpowered JB's pencils too much for my own taste.

At the time of JB taking over the FF, I'd have thought Dan Green would have been a good fit, but I'm very glad we got pure JB.

Dan Green! 
Now there was an inker that knew how to complement the pencils, not overwhelm them. He worked really well with JRJR on his X-Men run. 

Great first-thing-in-the-morning thought I can't get anywhere else. 

Thanks, Peter!  < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">

Green was the perfect non-JB inker, remaining compatible with his pencils for decades, even as their own styles changed during that time.

I didn't like Green on some pencillers or books. He didn't work over Jim Lee's first guest issue of X-MEN. Got too loose over Silvestri, also. His wavy, chaotic line gave me a sense of unease in scenes that didn't warrant it.

However, that same line was perfect on a book like BLOOD OF THE DEMON.

Yeah, I really enjoyed a large portion of the work they did on X-Men. The Avengers issues DG did with JB were good for early Byrne, and I still enjoy those pages. As Vinny says, if you look at the Blood of the Demon, it's nice how Green's inks continued to complement JB's pencils, even though there is quite a lot of change in style from way back when.
