ME: It went something like this...and still does:

Sergio rough-pencils the story - 2-3 days
Mark puts in dialogue - 2-3 days
Stan letters the copy in - 2-3 days
Sergio finishes the art - 10-12 days
Mark does corrections - 1 day
Tom does coloring - 6-12 days

That's very approximate.  It's also very fast.  Most artists in the
business need a lot more time for their stages.
