New Mutants #51 page 15

Another page from the controversial 1987 fill-in issue. Looks like I changed the lighting when I inked the last panel.

  1. Question: Comic art boards were 11"x17" with a pre-ruled 10"x15" safe area. But on DC board nowadays I see a smaller dashed-line "safe area" within the 10x15 solid line. Have they shrunk down the safe area and what are the measurements for this dashed area? 10"x15" art scaled down doesn't seem to fit into this smaller dashed area and I'm going nuts trying to get Manga Studio to emulate Marvel/DC sizes.

  5. All the mail was negative. The readers hated the art.

  6. Looking at the june 26 post I was expecting for some weirdness in the artwork that might have generated such hate, but this page is just as great as usual! I like the last two pages especially.
    I appreciate the idea of posting the hate letters to your blog Kevin, it's both ironic and professional!
