Lobster Johnson's claws. Great with garlic butter.

Dark Horse solicitation time again, and do you remember the last time Mike Mignola worked with an inker? Me neither, though I think it might have been with Al Williamson on Howard Chaykin's adaptation of FAFHRD AND THE GRAY MOUSER. 1991-odd, then. So here's a surprise - Mignola's cover for the first issue of the latest B.P.R.D. mini, inked by Kevin Nowlan. Mignola's lines are pretty much inker proof - the only way you'd tell this had Nowlan's inks is from Liz Sherman's face.

Cross hatching in the background is a dead giveaway.

True dat.

Nowlan inked him on an aliens book a while back. The thing is you can't really see any difference. In Kevin Nowlan's Modern Masters book he mentions that Mignola was a bit disappointed that that the inks were so faithful, but Nowlans says when stuff is that good he doesn't need to change anything.
