Wally Wood's 22 Panels That Always Work!!

Most aspiring comic book artist's know about "Wally Wood's 22 Panels That Always Work”. I've seen it around a few years ago but never really thought too much of it. Recently I came across it again, but this time I gave it a long hard look and decided to apply it to my (almost published) graphic novel. Out of curiosity, I wanted to see how my drawings sized up to the “Wally Wood's 22 Panels That Always Work”. 


I have always loved Wally Wood’s Film Noir ink style while collecting his comic books as a kid, so applying his idea to my finished work was interesting for me. I've already drawn and inked over 150 pages in volume one of the graphic novel Prisoner of the Mind, so I had a lot of panels to choose from. I think I may have picked up some of his vision subliminally from reading comic books all those years.

Wally's Panels are on the left, my panels are on the right. What do you think?
