"I’m actually best known not for inking, but for co-creatingand penciling The New Mutants. But I have done awhole lot of inking.
I started my career doing letteringcorrections in the production department at Marvel, sittingnext to Mike Esposito and Frank Giacoia, two top inkerswho were doing their inking right there in the Marvel officeat little wooden drawing tables. I of course wanted to bedrawing comics, and had no ambition to do inking at all.
But Mike Esposito said I could learn to be an inker fasterthan I could learn to be a penciler. So I started inkingbackgrounds for Mike, and was soon getting my own inkjobs. I was lucky enough to be able to learn the art ofinking while getting paid to do it. So please disregard myfirst few ink jobs!"
