Notes

Nick Caputo says "This one is tough. The top section looks like it was either inked by Ayers, with touch ups, or Kirby inked it himself. The bottom section with Cap looks like neither Kirby or Ayers inked it, although I can't confirm the style. It MAY be Carl Hubbell, who worked at Marvel around this time."
