Whew-


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.)

That's it? "Only" 51 characters on a 2-page spread? George must be slipping. Back in the original Crisis days, he'd have 51 on a page.

Do you ink the original pages, or do you ink a separate sheet (lightboxed?) so that the pencils are left untouched?

And did you have anything for the issue #1 annotations that I missed?

Was it more difficult dotting in Andromeda's starfield "crotchcover", or Chameleon (the one on the right page)'s... tail made of Kraft Dinner? Bravo on that double spread. Looking forward to #2!
