Amazing inks... and incredible use of perspective. I love the expression on Omega's face and the close-up panel on Metroplex' eyes is amazing....I just love your style. Thanks so much

Now, see, this is fascinating. Because your inks here are actually messy. (Don't hit me; I know it's a choice you made knowingly!) I'm so used to seeing perfectly-brushed/lined/weighted inks, that knowing this look is still an option was a very cool surprise. Was it part of the comic's retro look, or did you just go, "Hey, this is how I ink?" 
(And don't you usually do pencils and have someone else ink, or am I crazy?)
*Stares* This is super fascinating. I really wish I could watch you work some time. You're the one "Art God" I've never managed to track down in real life yet. 
What did you use to get that rough-edged crayon-like fade-out on Atlas's head in the bottom panel? Or do you just have that much control over when you lift your Sharpie? :D

Yep - These inks are messy on purpose, or I would say "spontaneous"... I preferred to go with the flow, trying to give characters life, rather that doing something too technical that would have ended in making things look stiff.
As per inking -- For the most part I prefer inking myself, only in recent years I was inked by others, sometimes for style consistency (like Regeneration One) sometimes because of time constraints.
And about "that rough-edged crayon-like fade-out on Atlas's head" -- it's just the paper texture visible at the end of the marker's strokes... probably the pentel sign pen I was using was starting to dry a bit and that's the result... nothing actually on purpose but I like the effect nonetheless :)
