on the other thread, I said Wally Wood
I don't know enough about inkers to offer an educated Top Five list. As much as I know about comic books, many of you folks have read four or five times more of 'em than I have.
Still, I have mixed feelings about Wood as an inker.
Wood was a hugely talented artist, of course. No question. But he's one of those inkers who tended to redraw the pencils in the Wally Wood style. For instance, I've seen Wood's inks on Jack Kirby pencils. They look a lot more like Wood than Kirby. In fact, I'm not sure that I could identify the penciller if he wasn't credited.
