Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

- Robert Frost

Batman #5
Why Physical Comics Are Still Way Cool
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's run as been praised as a creative success, and deservedly so.  With Batman #5 (now available), they up the ante.

I don't want to give anything away, but the physical properties of the actual comic become part of the story.  And this is not a gimmick or trick.  I urge you to cehck it out!

Inkwell Awards 
The Inkwell Awards

Inking is the art of enhancing an illustration through the means of redrawing pencil lines with ink and its related tools.

This enhancing, or 'ink editing', would elaborate in the areas of, but not limited to, weight, space, depth, definition, contrast, texture, composition and design.

The Inkwell Awards promotes this often overlooked and under-appreciated art form by serving as a source of education for inking and recognizing excellence and achievement of individual artists working in the field of comic book sequential illustration.

Ernie is volunteer Legal Counsel for The Inkwell Awards.
