My new (and first) PDF e-book is finished and ready for downloading and it's only $5! Creating Old School Comics: the Tips, Tools and Tricks You Need for Pre-Digital Cartooning covers everything you'll need in case Abrams' Revolution comes true and Cintiqs stop working. I cover hand lettering, inking techniques, the best brands of ink and paper to buy and more. Creating Old School Comics is 72 pages packed with art examples, photos and links. You can order it here, on my blog, Eventized: http://eventized.blogspot.com/

If you purchase a copy, please send me your feedback. If I revise the book the upgraded version will be sent to purchasers of the book for free!

Oh Cool! I love hand inking. I try to do it as much as possible. Nothing like the feel of a brush in your hand. :)

It gives you a look you can't get any other way. I've seen work done on Wacoms and the like that are getting pretty close. It's still not the same as an original drawing on paper, though.

I agree. I'm a huge proponent of traditional art, but I do use a Wacom as well. Some of my webcomics are purely digital, while others are purely traditional. I think you have to figure out what works best for the project and go from there. But yeah, recently I tried doing a dry brush effect on a Wacom and it just wasn't coming out right. My real brush woulda done the job!

Nothing beats a nice hand-brushed page! Loving the traditional approach!
