Here’s a Fighting Yank story illustrated by the all-star team of Jerry Robinson (pencils) and Mort Meskin (inks). If you study the figures closely, it’s apparent just how great an influence Meskin exerted on a young Steve Ditko.

“The Return Of Fingers” originally appeared in The Fighting Yank #27 (Better/Nedor/Standard, January 1949).

  1. As I’ve said elsewhere, I wish someone will real expertise would write a treatment of convergence and divergence in the styles of Kirby, Meskin, Kubert, and Ditko.
