How Low Burns The Lantern?

Inker extraordinaire Shawn Van Briesen has posted a cool blast from my past.  It’s the complete 8 page flashback sequence from SUPREME #49 that he inked over my pencils.  What’s especially cool is that he reproduces my pencils alongside his inks to compare.  We were going for a 70’s look in this particular bit and I think we hit it pretty good!  Script by Alan Moore and lettering by Todd Klein.

    Surprisingly tight pencilling. Van Briesen says that inking it was a rush job – had to turn it around in a weekend – which worked out well as most seventies marvel comics look like they were rush jobs…which I prefer to the modern precious/slick/sterile look. Dig me writing like Alex Toth.
