Dick Turpin And The First Six Pages!

I'm delighted to be able to finally share the completed first six pages of Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague with you. Some of artist Graeme Howard's inked pages were posted here a few months back without the lettering - but don't they look spectacular with the words?
