FT:Rebirth - Page 1 finished!

Since I'm fine with just posting the first page, here it is hot off the press! First without text:

I'm still debating between two font types, but realizing a fatal flaw in ShonenPunk makes me lean more towards CartoonistSimple. This fatal flaw being that in the middle of the word, there are crossed I's, which is one of the biggest no-no's in lettering. Just so you can see the difference, here it is in that font:

Can you see how where the crossed I's are it is a bit harder to read? CartoonistSimple does not have this problem, and although it lacks the organic quality of the first, it is much easier to read:

So yes, it will probably be lettered with CartoonistSimple. Thank you for all the feedback I got both here and elsewhere, it helped me so much! I hope you like this first page of FT: Rebirth! :D

On a side note, the last two panels were colored after I got CS4 Design Premium yesterday, and was colored in half the time as a result! I am so excited for the free CS5 upgrade to come, I know it will only make this whole process even easier. ^___^ Plus because of this, now I have a working version of Dreamweaver so hopefully I can get back to updating my websites regularly after school is over in two weeks. :'D

DO MORE!!! I've been waiting for so long! I need more! It looks amazing and I agree, the second one without the crossed I's is way easier to read. MORE PAGESSSSSSSS!
