I love this image. It is a great example of both artists' strengths.

Yes, working on their own and not as team.

So cool. It's neither one at their best, and it's still awesome.

What is the secret origin of this drawing?

There are aspects of it that I find interesting but ultimately it doesn't work for me. It's less Spider-Man and more Mr. Webbed-Lumpyhead.

Does anyone know which artists worked on which parts? Did one do the pencils, the other the inks? I see more Miller than Kirby. (On second thought, the anatomical figure is Kirbyesque.)

Pretty amazing. I can appreciate how unique this is compared to just drawing generic, typical Spider-Man.

It looks to me like it was inked by Miller and with Kirby on pencils, but I'm a little doubtful about it.

Anyone know where it came from?

There's a good deal of artists doing art in another artist's style putting up stuff on eBay, that's why I'm a little hesitant.

It doesn't look bad though.

I think it's great! Really weird mix of the two artists.

It's genuine. It's from a book called "Jack Kirby's Heroes and Villains", put together by Greg Theakston. Back in the 1970s, Kirby had done a sketchbook full of drawings of different characters as a gift to his wife, Roz. Before he passed on, Kirby gave Theakston permission to publish it. There were two editions: One was just the straight Kirby pencil drawings, and then later there was the "Black Magic Edition", where they got a bunch of different artists to do inked versions. It's a very eclectic collection: Everyone from John Byrne to Geoff Darrow to Jim Lee to Dan Clowes inking over Kirby. Some of the artists follow the original pencils closely, and others (like the Miller Spidey) take more liberties. It's a very cool book, worth seeking out.

Agreed. This book must be found.

I'm a little less impressed with this picture... Neither artist seems to compliment each other here.

The wildly different styles weren't really a good fit from the start. They both have very specific cartooning styles, but Miller has that shaky look.

Looks cool. More like fine art.

Was this book ever in print since the 70's. Is it one of those really expensive hard to find things like the original issues of Miracle Man?

The book with the guest-artists' inks is from 1994. It can be found for anywhere between $50 - $100 these days (and of course sometimes more or less). It's on eBay right now for $42 bucks, for example.

I like that picture a lot.

Really cool mix of Kirby and Sin City era Miller.
