Another Kamandi splash from my k-files. Not a terrific scan, but I enjoy looking at the faded originals. Mike Royer mentioned in an old interview that Jack was using a really cheap brand of atboard at this time and I wonder if that had something to do with the yellowing. Or I suppose someone may have left this art where it was exposed to some moisture? This is from Kamandi # 25. I think D. Bruce Berry did a nice job on the inks for this page. You can see the white-out behind “All Right” twice on the caption at the top of the art. I wonder if Jack had written “alright.” Woudn’t that be the correct word? The correction makes it appear the characters are “all” (noun) “right” (adjective). Here’s one answer from dictionary.com:
World English Dictionary
The form alright as a one-word spelling of the phrase all right in all of its senses probably arose by analogy with such words as already and altogether. Although alright is a common spelling in written dialogue and in other types of informal writing, all right is used in more formal, edited writing.
