BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH:
NICK FURY, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D #12 Page 3 (Detail)


This 1969 page showcases the energetic style, innovative design, and evident
Kirby influence characteristic of Windsor-Smith's early comics work.
Pen and Ink on bristol. Inking by BWS and Sid Greene
Image 9 1/8 x 14" SOLD

Note: Most of the figures on this page were inked on vellum by BWS
and taped over the whited-out original figures with non-yellowing magic tape.
This extensive reworking of the art was done by Barry virtually overnight,
when he found the inking by Sid Greene to be unacceptable. This adds to
the charm of this vintage original, not only because it is a rare example of
BWS' own inking of his pencils, but also because it offers an opportunity to
compare, on one page, how one how two different inkers approached the
same pencils. Panels 3, 5, and the first figure in panel 1 remain as inked by
Greene. The rest of the figures are inked by Windsor-Smith.
