I'm grateful to Mike for selling me the Starfire cover at a reduce cost because I was a repeat customer and a fan. But yesterday he blew my mind by expressing HIS gratitude to ME by sending me this page in the mail because he thought I would appreciate it. What he thought I would appreciate was his experiment in putting down the black ink shapes first, going in with the lines second as practiced by Noel Sickles and Mort Meskin. (Most artists, like me, ink the lines first and spot the inks second). Mike was right, I really do appreciate this page; in fact, I think it's magnificent. The artist informed me that it's an unused page from one of his Lori Lovecraft storylines.
