John Romita Jr. THOR by TimTownsend John Romita Jr. THOR by TimTownsend
Just dug some oooold photo copies out of a box. This is the first time I inked Jr Jr for a THOR promotional piece just prior to his run on the book. I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I was so ill-suited to ink him and was terrified to screw it up. At this point in the game I was still inking entirely with a nib and had hardly ever even picked up a brush to do anything but spot blacks. Anyway, this piece is fumbling and awkward but, even so, considering how little I knew about what I was doing at the time, Im surprised it turned out even this well. This was done around 1995 I believe.

Awesome inks, I agree with other comments on the Klaus Janson vibe, but I think it's the best style for JRJr.

It gives it a certain Frank Miller circa-Ronin quality, and that's never a bad thing.

It's funny how you talk about fumbling here because the rawness gave it an energy that drew me to it to begin with. I have a lot of your published work and love it.

I went out and bought that run on Thor last year, I like Romita's work so much! Considering your comments, I think you did a stellar job. I especially like the halo of white around Thor and the head of the hammer.
