If I win an argument, it doesn't mean I'm right. It means I'm a better arguer.

In addition, I'm right.

Then you need to get Jay Jay to color it!
I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

I have plans to get a color version made. Not the original, but a one of a kind print to be framed next to it. Working on it, not sure who will be doing it, yet.

Just saw this amazing commission of XO/Turok Sears art that was just posted at comicartfans and was going to come here and ask you if you were planning on having it inked. That is great that Andy is going to do it :thumb:

Such an incredible piece. I love it. I like how the new Aric has his hand on the old, as if to say 'stand back, old man - its my turn now.'

I'd love to colour it, too, if I had any free time available to play with it!

UPDATE: Andy Smith inks over Bart Sears' pencils. Just sent a high rez scan to a really good color artist to do a color print. Probably going to frame together (we'll see).
