I just inked a double page spread with 51 characters on it (although, to be fair 6 of them are duplicates of two women).
I think the way to look at FC:Legion is kinda like watching two master jugglers - Geoff throws out three balls to George, they pass them back and forth for a few second, George throws in a bowling ball and three eggs. they juggle the balls, eggs and bowling ball for a page or two. Geoff tosses in a chainsaw, a brick and an elephant, George heaves a barkalounger, a car and backhoe, and on and on it goes. It's fascinating to watch.
All I do is just keep the barkalounger and the chainsaw passed on to the colorist (making sure the elephant has got his Legion ring on the proper finger on the right hand.)
