“It will be more like what I’m doing now with “Superman/Batman” and what was seen in ‘Origins and Omens.’ I’ve been having an insane amount of fun inking my work. Using the brush has been liberating for me, and with every new page I get more and more comfortable using water color, ink wash and gouache. You can track my progress at http://manapul.deviantart.com/, where I usually post the process work of my pages.”
