I appreciate John Paul Leon’s artwork for its simplicity. He uses an economy of line to convey the details he needs, without a lot of unnecessary detail.

Leon’s work is the exact opposite; less becomes more.

I’m really enjoying the return of a back-up feature to comic books. More writers should be challenged to write in this compressed format, and compelled to deliver in a handful of pages what they may be accustomed to delivering in an entire comic.
I hope thought balloons aren’t far behind.
