366 Days with J. Jonah Jameson, Day 14: All in all we're just another brick in the wall collapsing on JJJ

Panels from Untold Tales of Spider-Man '96 (December 1996 annual), script by Kurt Busiek, pencils by Mike Allred, inks by Joe Sinnott, colors by Steve Mattsson, letters by Richard Starkings

Must admit when you first look at the page you do a double take when you see the penciller credit, but looking at the figure-work it's plainly Allred (Namor in the first panel especially)

I guess Marvel editorial thought pure Allred would have all the Image kids & speculators falling foul of the classic error of mistaking simple for easy, and giving Joe Sinnott some work is never a wrong decision, but that's just bizarre.

Excellent comment, Timber-Munki! Much more elegantly and well/expressed than my cheap joke. I appreciate it and thanks for the contribution!

Huh. I don't think I've read this since it came out, and can't recall thinking this at the time, but the end result looks kinda like Don Simpson. His art, to be clear, not the actual guy.
