This question's for Dave--

Why did you decide to make 3 fingers/2 toes part of Kurt's character design? I'm just curious.

Well, actually, I sort of h alf-heartedly drew a third toe as a heel. A gripping toe, as it were. That doesn't explain, however, how he can get his foot into a boot made for a normal human foot. :LOL :LOL :LOL

Personally, I'd have to give Jack Kirby an awful lot of credit as a creator...

Mr. Cockrum, SIR! Imagine a snappy salute, if you please, SIR! I do think Jack, the king, Kirby influenced your style a wee tad bit, SIR!! Respectfully, with all grovelling due...ME!!:D

By the way, those feet and hands of his would be most appropriate for the trapeze!!;)

Second best then. I also love your designs. Notice that after all this time Ms. Marvel still has your redesign? Love the cover on her issue that's out t his week.
