Craig: Good job preserving the original character expressions in JB's art.

Nice job, Craig! Smooth inking style.

Here's my newest - in regard with what Matt asked earlier, I will try to ink a page from every issue. This one is from Issue 2 page 12. I only have three issues to go to complete the task!

Here is issue 10 page 3 -  two more to go before I have inked at least one page from every issue so far!

Many thanks, Steven! I like the forced perspective on that panel. I made an effort to try and use thicker, heavier inks on the foot and work my way back. That kind of forced me to use thinner more detailed lines going to his head. The hardest thing to ink for me was that confounded shield!

Here is my latest - only one to go to have inked a page from every ELSEWHEN issue! 
I'm trying to thin my lines a bit after seeing what they look like posted. Done with microns, brush, Tombow & white acrylic. 
Issue 11 page 19. 
(As a side note - Jahf looks like a character Jack Kirby would have created).

Well done Paul.  Bonus point for not picking the "easy pages". :)

(:   Sometimes the pages I think are the easiest turn out to be the hardest!

I am grateful for this platform John and grateful for your work. Much as REM and U2 were the sountrack of a misspent youth, your stories, your art was safe haven for an unhappy childhood. Your work was an escape. Your early X-Men issues were my first exposure, and your work with the Fantastic Four is unparalleled. Your work wasn't an homage to what Lee and Kirby were doing bfore as much as it was extension and an evolution. I love and enjoy the work of many artists and writers in the medium over the years, but no one so much as yours. So, thank you for your gifts and sharing them with your fans over these many years.
