Here's page 2 of that late 80's Vex strip.
I'll post the whole strip to keep the blog updated while I'm finishing off the 'Miserable' story.
As you can see I was heavily influenced by Norm Breyfogle. Probably one the greatest 'Batman' artist of the modern era...and so underrated.
His artwork on 'Detective Comics' was simply amazing...not since Will Eisner has there been anyone that breaks the mold in panel layout like Breyfogle.
Just my opinion anyways..for what it's worth.
