Phil Jimenez shared on Instagram today that he is trying his hand at inking some of these pages. Nice to see that other pros are excited about this project as well.

That looks great! Man I was just looking through his instragram account now. So much great stuff he’s doing. If we’re talking about famous inkers on the project, I’d loved to see someone like Kevin Nowlan. I know he can be overpowering but I really just want to see what that combo will produce. I’ve seen him  ink Jurgens, Sprouse and Bogdanove in the past and you could still see their style shine through.

I really like Phil Jimenez, which makes sense, I suppose, since I am a big George Perez fan. Heh. I hope he inks more of the art! If this thing gets realized by Marvel and becomes an actual publication,  I wouldn't mind seeing Jimenez as inker.

Interesting - looks like he's inking digitally with the iPad Pro. I wonder what app he's using?

I've been trying my hand at inking these on my HP Chromebook X2 which is a detachable laptop with a digital pen. I haven't done enough for me to try to post here just yet.

Ooh, I love Jimenez' work. Great to see other pros joining in the fun.

And part of his comment: "Nothing crazy or modern; just trying to replicate a retro feel, inking what's there (what I can make out in the scan). Big and chunky lines and black masses. Super oldschool and lots of fun. He still knows what he's doing!"

I too love George Perez and by some extension, have enjoyed Phil's work. However, I never really like and JB/GP crossovers. Just not convinced their styles work well together, for me.

And while it is grossly unfair to judge a collaboration based on a handful of lines over two incomplete panels. This doesn't fill me with any expectation beyond what I have mentioned already. "Just not convinced their styles work well together, for me."

I do echo the thought that board-member Phillipe raises that it adds Kudos to the project and maybe momentum to a recognition of Johns evident skills and their lack of presence in the modern industry.

However, I do feel like there is the potential for thing to wiff of 'try-outs'.

I wonder why he sent Kurt to the barber?

(Also looks like he's working from the original posts in this thread, not the cleaned up versions in the "In Sequence" thread.)

In his post, Phil said he was doing this to "warm up" for inking a project he is working on and doing it "just for fun". This isn't meant to be a publication-ready, fully finished product; nor is it meant to be a try-out for a project that doesn't even exist (yet?).

Apologies if that wasn't clear in my original post.

I've always wondered how you drew bits of 'Kirby' machinery (inside  ships, danger room, etc) with such precision. It seems like that would take forever using rulers and round Helix.

I use a french curve, and often an elliptical template. But just as often I opt for freehand.

Had a weird thought...

Since I cannot seem to stop myself imagining this becoming a real series, and since I can easily imagine using lots of models for vehicles, props, sets, etc, AND since the pencils would be scanned for blue line to be inked...

I find myself wondering if it would be more efficient, both for myself and the inkier if, instead of tracing the images onto the page, I pasted in a line rendering of the model(s). Certainly would be sharper and crisper, for the inker to work over.

Hmmm......

I thought their styles meshed beautifully in ACTION COMICS #600. Taste is taste, of course.

Phil Jiminez is a great penciller but the inker he usually works with (Andy Lanning? I can't remember) isn't a good fit for him, in my opinion.

                                                                                                                          My attempt-in-progress at coloring this page in retro style. Nothing flashy, I am old school, bright/fun colors are all you need.The inker is Scott Barnett. Still some work to do here, but I must say this is quite fun!

…coloring this page in retro style…

Even "retro style" would have a greater range of tones in the backgrounds.

I'm still fooling around with the backgrounds JB.Were you speaking if the sky in particular? I'm thinking of lightening up the background so the characters are more the focal point.

In a deep, dark, dense jungle, I don't think "lighter" would be the way to go.

I suppose not, I've been back and forth several times. I could always make this a dusk/night time scene. Was there mention of the time of day this might take place?

Sunlight streaking down thru the canopy...?

I'm seeing here an all too common concentration on HOW you are coloring, over WHAT you are coloring.
