GENE COLAN



Gene Colan has always been one of the best artists in comics.
His Tomb of Dracula series was my favorite comic series ever,
and he was paired (as he often was) with my favorite inker,
Tom Palmer. Although I've always enjoyed inking his work, many
other inkers were flustered by all the grey tones he uses. But
he shows us here that his art is superb even uninked! He's still
doing amazing commissions after recently celebrating his 80th birthday!


Gene Colan: I don't remember any of this work. However,
looking at it, the story struck me as a lot of fun to draw.

This was my first time inking Gene, and I had the benefit of using wash tones to capture his subtle grays.
