I LOVE this and I've been inked by folks I love and folks I want to fall upon their broken bong.

This has GRIT, man, but it's a true grit (old 1960's Marvel original print comics joke there).

It's ARTSY, but not arty-farty, it's USA compliant and yet UK "thinking man's 2000 AD approved".

I cannot give that less than 9 out of 10. It's somewhere over 9.15.

Good Lord -- the Steve Dillon vibe coming off those pencils is powerful strong…!

It's a little hard to critique your inks properly when posted so small. Try to post the inks at least as big as the pencils. That way it's easier to make a comparison.

That said, your inks look pretty decent with a couple of exceptions. In panel 1, I think you took the pecils too literally around Superman's chin. What you inked as a scratch on his chin, looks to me in the pecilled page like a smudge or erased bit of setup work. I could be wrong, but I don't read it as part of the final pencils. Also, and much more glaring is the work on the black border at the bottom of the page. Three words. USE A RULER!! Those sloppy bits around the borders, particularly the bottom of the panel, really detract from what are otherwise pretty solid looking inks. Just a little more effort in those blacks would have made ths page look much more pro. Don't take shortcuts.

Post up a larger version of this page, and I might be able to offer a bit more feedback. That's all I can see from the image provided. Looks good, though. Keep at it.
