On Sunday, March 24, the MUTTS comic strip will pay tribute to the Marvel comic series Fantastic Four and the series’ creators Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.
This Sunday’s strip, along with a second tribute strip scheduled to be published next month, will be inked by legendary Marvel comics artist Joe Sinnott, whose work on the series began in 1961 with Fantastic Four #44 and continued through the 1980s. Sinnott, who retired on March 17 at age 92, is also revered for inking Thor, the Avengers, and the Amazing Spider-Man comic strip, among others.
“I have always been a fan of Jack Kirby and his inker Joe Sinnott,” says MUTTS creator Patrick McDonnell. “To have this legendary artist ink a MUTTS strip is something I could never have imagined.”
