I abandoning inking comics with a nib around four years ago for my trusty tech pen. I was finding that I could create much more fluid drawings at a quicker rate with my pen than using a dip pen.
I resolved that I was going to forge my own way with the pen, even though it is not considered a proper inking tool as such, and that I would make it work for me. I have always taken note since whenever I would read that an artist used pens to ink, and not the traditional brush or nib; Ron Rege, John Porcelino and Jeffery Brown to name a few.
But then I would look at the work of Mandy Ord with her big juicy brush strokes, or Craig Thompson's beautiful lines, and more recently the work done by Clowes in his latest book 'Wilson' and wish that I could switch to the dark side and ink with a brush. I've attempted it a few times over the years, and I am probably happiest with my efforts with 'Z-Factor' inked with a Pentel brush pen.
Perhaps I should have read these inking tips first.
