The Art of Comic Book Inking by Gary Martin, published by Dark Horse books.
This one annoyed me a bit. Far from it not being useful, but it was full of attitude "Noone respects us poor inkers", all through the book he's trying to convince readers that inkers are not just tracers - as if someone who thinks that would buy a book about inking.
But that's not what I was gonna say.
This is a great overview of inking with some fascinating comparisons of famous inkers inking over the same Steve Rude pencils. Great book
It's that part. It's kind of hillarious, hals of those inking examples look exactly the same. I mean, they're all good, but there's only a few of them that are distinctive from the rest. I don't have an eye of a professional inker, but far from it being unexperienced eye.
I think the fault was the choice of Penciler on whose pencils they war working. It's too tight, doesn't let inker spin his wheel properly.
