Probably only of real interest to Dr. Hookenstein, but today I learned these two longtime stalwarts of the Silver and Bronze Age of comics were friends since high school, and graduated together from the school of visual arts in 1948 (along with Wally Wood). Explains why they worked together for like 40 years.
Ross Andru will always be my Spider-man artist. He was on Amazing when I started reading—the Doc Ock-Ghost of Hammerhead story, to be precises—so he'll always be my standard (in the same way that Gerry Conway and Len Wein are my Spidey writers).
. I remembered you saying that. And I’m pretty sure Esposito was his inker first most If not all of it. They were almost always paired together.
Yeah, on the Conway issues, I'm pretty sure. He was inking Romita and Jim Mooney as Mickey Demeo back in the 60s, too. In a way, Mike Esposito is the key figure in post-Ditko Spider-man art all the way to almost the 80s.
Fans of wild 60s DC comics probably enjoyed their run on Metal Men as well. Though the normies probably knew them for Eonder Woman.
I thought Eonder Woman was Marvel's answer to Wonder Woman. :shifty:

I’m sorry that you seem shocked that K’oriander is happy to see her beau, Mr. Greyson.

Kudos to this kid for a pretty decent supervillain mugshot.
