Comic Book Inking is an artform in and of itself. If you don't believe me look at the Machine Man limited series that Barry Windsor-Smith inked and any other comic that Herb Trimpe ever drew. Inkers have long fought for recognition as the artists they are ever since Jason Lee's character was called "a tracer" in Chasing Amy. Inkers can make a bad artist look good and a great artist look bad. The Inkwell Awards take an opportunity every year to educate fans about the art of comic book inking.
