Doug Hazlewood inks Avengers #12 from original Kirby pencils.
Doug writes, “I just finished this AVENGERS #12 cover recreation. I inked it (everything–lettering, too…nothing is pasted on) over bluelines of the cover art. I did want to keep some things very faithful to the original, but not just trace every line. I adore Kirby and Stone and this was inked on 11 x 17 Strathmore Bristol board. I’ve always felt that the big piece of rock with Wasp under it must have been retouched at the offices after Chic inked it. Maybe they wanted her to show up more. I rendered it in a different fashion, as the printed cover just looks ‘fiddled with’ there.”
