In that case, the only thing left to judge him by is the quality of the work. I can't really blame Colletta for that god-awful inking on Thor if he wasn't the guy who did
the god-awful inking.
That's why I'm confused. For the sake of fairness, if I want to reevaluate Colletta's work I have to do some pretty in-depth research just to find out which pieces he actually did the inks on.
Maybe there's a collector who knows more about this stuff and can clear it up.
