The lovely, sophisticated art here from Richard Doxsee, a favorite I discovered via this blog, shines through in spite of the less than stellar reproduction in the original comic book.

There was a time when one would be hard pressed to tell Grandenetti art from Will Eisner art, By the '70s, though, Jerry had developed into quite the stylist. At the time, that style escaped me, but through the years, I've come to appreciate it.

Here we see future Spidey artist John Romita a full decade before he took over the webs from Ditko. For that entire ten year period, JR Sr would toil in romances with a few cowboys here and there early on. Here at Atlas he seems almost a clean, DC-type style. Perhaps that's why most of those romances would ultimately be for National.

Some nice touches here but overall one of the most pedestrian Kirby jobs ever IMHO. GCD credits Jack as inker, too, which would be rare but not unheard of. Some of the thin lines remind me of the work of inker Chris Rule, though, known for inking Jack a lot around this time.
