I thought of Sid Greene as being DC's Joe Sinnott.

I would have given Murphy Anderson that title, but Greene works too.

I've been revisiting JB's FF run via the omnibi and really enjoying the
JB/Sinnott issues.

JB, how did you come to work with Joe Sinnott on FANTASTIC FOUR, both
before and after you were writing the book?

I would say Dick Giordano, considering that Sinnott worked on comics well into the 80s and 90s. Giordano had done some Marvel inks as well (a partial issue of Perez' AVENGERS in the late 90s), and the book felt like a DC title when I saw it.

A wonderful and fitting portrait tribute to Joe from Bill Sienkiewicz:

I think the (too) obvious thing would have been to do a portrait in Sinnott's style, but this is brilliant having one half done in blue pencil and the rest inked.

I could get lost in that bristolboard site for days i think! :^O

I thought Sid Greene was very much of the same gorgeous quality of inking that Sinnott was. I loved seeing his inking of '60s DC Gil Kane comics like I enjoyed Sinnott on Kirby and John Buscema. They made it look so smooth, perfect and easy with the brushwork, both in their ways as skilled as Frank Frazetta, who was maybe the greatest pen and ink artist I've ever seen (with Bernie Wrightson, Wally Wood, Lou Fine, Russ Heath, Matt Baker, Nestor Redondo, Dave Stevens and Mark Schultz all nipping at his heels)!

That is why I love it.  The inking will be forever unfinished.

I wanted to post the portrait directly here, but the image is too big for our forum rules.  I am in hospital this week with only an iPad so I can't resize it.  If someone else could resize and post it, I would much appreciate it.

I was flipping thru the first of my hardbound FF volumes today, and tucked into issue 5 there’s a letter from Joe. In a PS he mentions having a “lead” on more pages from that issue. I wonder how that went?
