was an American comic book artist. Working primarily as an inker, Joe Sinnott is best known for his long stint on Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four, from 1965 to 1981 (and briefly in the late 1980s), initially over the pencils of Jack Kirby. During his 60 years as a Marvel freelance artist and then salaried artist working from home, Sinnott inked virtually every major title, with notable runs on The Avengers, The Defenders, and Thor.
In the mid-2000s, Stan Lee cited Sinnott as the company’s most in-demand inker. Sinnott’s art appeared on two US Postal Service commemorative stamps in 2007, and he continued to ink The Amazing Spider-Man Sunday comic strip until his retirement in 2019.
