Jim isn't online but he'll see your comments once he gets the hardcopy version. I'll say thanks for the compliments on his behalf.
I heartily agree with your assessment of Jim's problem-solving on these pages -- great inventiveness on every page. More amazing is that he can actually teach these techniques to others. You might not know that Jim was a cartooning teacher off on and for many years. I took one of his classes (despite being utterly unable to draw) and saw for myself that he uses lots of great examples of creative problem-solving in his teaching that gets the students' juices flowing. Too bad there's no art schools in Orlando that teach cartooning. Jim has a gift for teaching that is going to waste these days.
