Looking at the Kirby FF AE and just having read Kirby Pencil and Inks I am hard put to choose Royer or Sinnot as his best inker, but I would say it is one or the other.Just personal taste -- Sinnott, Wood, Royer, and then Chic Stone. Royer was clearly the most faithful but I do think Kirby needed a little help since he was drawing these things at breakneck speed, especially the faces.

The complete original art to ASM #20 and #33 (sans covers) is currently owned by Mike "romitaman" Burkey. You can see scans of the pages on his website here:
The art to another complete issue (#26) was exhibited by its owner David Mandel in 2009:
And since 2008, the complete interior art to Amazing Fantasy #15 (all 4 stories) has been owned by the Library of Congress.
Scott previously said in a 2015 Q&A that there were "issues" with a Ditko Artist's Edition.
Perhaps Scott was referring to the planned Ditko exhibition in Majorca, and not wanting to steal their thunder by releasing an AE before the exhibition ?
Or maybe Sturdy Steve is just against the idea of an AE (or would prefer it to showcase his creator-owned work, e.g. Static or Mr. A., rather than Spider-Man) ?
I guess we'll find out next month...

Irony and subtly are the first casualties
in the eternal battle of wits between people divided by a common language. So read between the lines or you'll fall through the cracks...
....Quoting other people is no substitute for thinking for yourself...

But like I said, not a judgement on his talent, just not my cup of tea.
Of course I could take a re-look at his work and reappraise.
And I love Stone inking those Buscema Surfer books. That heavy line you dislike to me it just makes the work pop! Pop-art...see lol.
Moreover, it just all seemed to fit into the 60's zeitgeist, with its emerging poster art and embrace of fun design concepts.
To be fair I also used to dislike Stone's inking but my tastes changed or evolved over the years. I grew away from a natural I suppose tendency to just appreciate a finer line in comic art and really came to embrace the essence of a drawing, or the iconographic elements that just kind of light up a page with power and energy. There is something pure about it. Cartooning dynamically. I get the same thrill from Toth or the great strip artists like Crane, Caniff or the even more distilled Bushmiller.
It's not all I want in comics. I'll never stop drooling over an Alcala/Buscema Conan page. But sometimes the breezy/poppy look of a Stone page hits the spot for me.
