Five Questions with...
Inker Le Beau Underwood

1) On what project are you currently working?

I am currently inking Angela: Asgard's Assassin for Marvel with penciler Phil Jimenez and colorist Romulo Farjardo, Jr.

2) Whom in your field do you admire most and why?

Tim Townsend. He has inked some of the best pencilers in the business, and his work is so slick and fluid. I really admire his versatility. Plus, he is a really nice guy in person. No ego at all.

3) How did you get into the comic book field?

With a lot of hard work and focus. I started by inking (in some cases, for free) small press titles, which led to more exposure to the larger publishers. I recall many times when I would gather together samples every two weeks and mail them out to publishers. I did this for several years. Eventually, I began to gain notice and started receiving paying gigs.

4) On which title would you most like to work and why?

For Marvel, I would like to ink either The Black Panther, Spider-Man, or Captain America. For DC Comics? Hmmm...either The Flash, Superman, or something Bat-related.

5) On what project will you be working next?

I'm prepping inks on issue #5 of Angela now, then into issue #6. I'm having a blast inking it.
