Thanks for this, I'd never seen Alascia inking over Fawcette. I find Gerald McCann an interesting artist. I like the individual panels but somehow the entirety doesn't quite work for me.
Gerald McCann did lots of Classics Illustrated books.I agree with your assessment of his work.Alascia was a decent inker in his day. I guess now he is best known for inking Charles Nicholas' pencils on countless Charlton comics tales.
Working for Classic Illustrated, with their stiff requirements regarding authenticity and layouts, surely didn't help. Nearly every panel is shown mid range; very few close ups or panoramic shots. Very staid and predictable layouts.
