Vegas Zatanna by dfridolfs Vegas Zatanna by dfridolfs
This is one of those cool pages I'll be fighting Dustin for later. And it's pretty cool cuz it's a real collaborative page.

Sometimes due to deadlines (heck always due to deadlines), it can be easier to cut corners. So instead of penciling out the entire background on this page and giving it to me....sometimes it's easier for the penciler to "draw" it in ink. So that's what happened here.

I can be sort of a clean almost rigid inker to a fault, so it's cool to see sort of a more alive and dirty inked version like Dustin did. I totally dig it.

This is part 1 of a 2 part story in Detective Comics, featuring Zatanna, Scarface, and the origin of the new Ventriloquist. Pretty snazzy.

And to top it all off...we worked on this issue after we got back from doing a couple of Vegas store signings.

Pencils & Backgrounds Inks: Dustin Nguyen
Zatanna Inks: Me!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. When y'all cut corners, magic ensues.


(No pun intended. Really.)

Wow, that's really awesome page, Derek!

Really love your clean lines for Zatanna against the sketchy inked Vegas background.
