A great guy and great friend; One of my two favorite Kirby inkers. I saw Mike make a post online and he mentioned he lived in Medford, Oregon- I had no idea! I sent him an email and he supplied a link to his website (such as it is) showing scans of some of his pin up recreations. We set up time to meet at his home and have been friends since.
Mike really has little interest in the world of comic art these days, using it as an income. But when he does a Kirby recreation... His attention to detail is astonishing!!
It's unlikely I'll ever own a Kirby/Royer page, but I also thought it unlikely I'd own an Amazing Fantasy #15. I can dream
In the meantime I've gathered at least 296 comic book signatures from Mike, and many more in TPB's, Artist Editions, and art, and thought I'd share it here.
