Kirby Dynamics did a bit of CSI sleuthing, taking an original page of Fantastic Four #74 and looking at some of the production processes.

It looks like Joe Sinnott must not have been satisfied with Alicia’s hair so he used white-out to fix some of the details. I wonder if he decided to lighten her hair or this is simply an example of his perfectionism where he wanted to make sure every single line was consistent. The image here looks almost fluorescent.

It’s funny to look at original production artwork and see where before computers came into use, the production personnel would cut out the month and date, then tape it to the publication information at the bottom of the page. Below you can see examples where it looks like that data may have peeled off, and in the next example, the number 8 and 4 are affixed to the artboard.

The entire article is very much worth the read. Click HERE to check it out.
