I would give my eyeteeth to pull off the awesome that they were capable of just past the dawn of comics. The energy of kids treading new ground, the skillset honed by a few years of doing the work- I don't have any intention of making retro-golden age art, but I can't imagine there's a better well to draw from. BECAUSE THERE'S NOT.
In a time when half the folks drawing comics wanted to be Caniff, Raymond or Foster, Robinson, with Meskin at his side, blazed his own trail. Sure, there's Sickles in the landscapes, there's Kirby in the dynamics, but nobody's ever gonna mistake Robinson or Meskin for anyone else.
