PiercingMetal Thoughts: As so much about Joe’s storied career can be found already documented on his Wikipedia entry, I will only add that I very likely have hundreds of issues of assorted Marvel Comics that Mr. Sinnott had inked. The scope of the characters that he worked on across his career is evident by the myriad of awesome in the art piece that I have embedded into this memorial reflection. Thank you Mr. Sinnott for bringing these amazing characters to such vibrant life for so many years. We wish you safe passage to Valhalla, and condolences to your family, friends and industry peers. Rest In Peace.
