It's the second guy I talked with, who had a project fall out of the loop and who came back to me, to my absolute delight. He's very good, much better than the other people who'd come to me, and he's not only good, he appreciated that my penciler is fucking brilliant and that his inks are only going to punch the pages up *just* that little bit more. He's said three times that the pages barely need inks, and what he showed me on one panel was nice subtle stuff, so I am *pleased*."
Original pencils on the left, inks on the right:
*Extremely* pleased now. Ted suggests asking him if he does colors; I shall.
