The pages are in excellent shape with no issues. The "blue line phobia" is a anti-sales tactic a small vocal set of art collectors and dealers with a lot of skin in the game have tried to reject for the last 15 years. If you collect them and they don't... You are getting ahead of them.
/ That is why these few people are so vocal. Computers and this work method are efficient and the way many teams work now and have been. On top of the fact that most of the pencilers who ink themselves now pencil digitally and then print out their drawings to ink...
Which is the SAME exact method. People collect 1 of 1 prints from digital pencilers. So you make the call. Don't let a few people who for some reason talk about blue lines negatively sway you. They obviously don't want YOU to collect them because THEY don't.
It helps keep their collection in their minds, more desirable. But I said this years ago watching them pound their chests online... All of this stuff is here to stay and as with any collectible... Those who get in early reap the rewards. I hand ink the entire page TRADITIONALLY.
This is 100% hand inked by me and is inked with crow quills, Raphael Kolinsky Sable brushes, tech pens and archival india ink. All work is the published original art and line art for the comic!! You will see small areas of white paint. I use that to shape lines just as I would black ink. It's a high end acrylic white paint by Holbein.
I have 5 Eisner nominations and was awarded the Inkpot award at San Diego comic con for a lifetime achievement in the field of comics.
