It does remind me of the earlier comics, or the occasional one where he'd take over the job from Kent. I just don't think Hastings is as good at inking as Kent is, but I'm sure since he's doing it for every comic now that he will improve over time.

I guess I just find it odd because Kent's been absent since the end of 'Gets Rad' and I hadn't noticed really with the other pages. But as mikekearn this has looked more like the famous pane that Kent refused to ink from D.A.R.E. I guess he must be really busy just now.
I thought the B&W art for 'Stolen Pizza-Stolen Lives' was awesome, but that was only five pages. Maybe it's just the amout of labor he's looking at that is unnerving.
It always starts the same way. I am in the garden airing my terrapin Jetta when he walks past my gate, that mysterious man in black and white. 'Hello Doctor,' I say. 'What are you doing in Dusseldorf?'
