So glad you are keeping your feet in the comics world, Ruben! I gotta say, while you are strong in all areas of draftsmanship, the area, I think, you truly excel is in page/panel layout. The Doc Savage examples below are an endless wealth of "how to show a scene", lead the eye, illustrate drama, etc. Just amazing!

I'll just "ditto" everything Tom said. These are great , Ruben ! I love The Phantom. You look like you're having so much fun in comics will you ever be tempted to go back to Disney Animation when the hand-drawn features get going again ? Still hoping to get to work together on an animated film again sometime ... (that goes for Mr. Bancroft , too .... gosh, I miss those days . Can you believe it's been like 10 years since we were in the thick of working on "Mulan" , '95 - '97 ? )
