Inking the King


Jim Rugg inks original Kirby pencils. “These are inking exercises I did while working as an inker for DC/Vertigo’s American Virgin series a few years ago. I found some of Jack Kirby’s pencil art, and I guess my brain was in inking mode and I couldn’t resist having a go at these.


Jim is the co-writer/artist of the PLAIN JanesStreet Angel and Afrodisiac and his self-published title Rambo 3.5 won the 2010 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Mini-Comic. You can find more of Jim’s work at his website, blog and Flickr photostream.
