1983 - The New Mutants #3

From Bob McLeod's Facebook page:

"The New Mutants #3 page 12. Written by Chris Claremont, lettered by Tom Orzechowski.
Most people don't know I ghosted a lot of the inking in issue 3. I was growing increasingly frustrated with the way the book looked, and I could ink a page so much faster than I could pencil a page. I realized I could ink the page myself in the time it would take me to tighten up the pencils enough to get my inker to ink it the way I wanted. This is when I decided it might work better if I inked the book instead of penciling it. It was a mistake in retrospect, but I was just so much more comfortable inking than penciling."
