Book 1: J-Man 1933

In the first of our multiversal adventures, we will look at a universe where the J-Man, going by "Detective J", lived in 1930's NYC instead of the mid 2010's. Detective J and Sleepy Bear try to clear the mysterious Lady-M's name after she has supposedly been stealing from the Empire Labs and Hammond Industries.
Inspired in parts by Will Eisner's The Spirit, Fritz Lang's Metropolis, and Disney shorts from the 30's, this was my Spring term comic for my cartooning class (I got an overall B+) which I hand drew/inked from January to April. My inking was not as good as i would've liked and some pages were slightly messy and could be difficult to read. So I've decided to redraw them digitally which should make them cleaner and clearer.
