I frame my art similar to yours with double matte, grey on top. The BW inked art seems to pop better than a black matte.

Agreed.  I do all my framing at AC Moore (not sure if those stores are national or just regional), but I think they do a nice job, and the guy who is charge of the framing department at my local store knows me well now and has all my framing specs saved.. so it's a very simple procedure when I bring a new piece in to be framed.

Didn’t have to spend big money to enhance this Jon Bogdanove Doomsday piece...for $30 in total I love how it turned out

Just a choice to go with less matting this time around.

Some of my Powell Goon art framed. 

Should've went with a double mat on the first piece or a different color. My son pointed out that "it looks like its sitting on cardboard".

I spent close to an hour picking out a frame and mat color for the cover, luckily I was on the clock. I really like the way it turned out.

I hung my Declan Shalvey Flash Gordon #3 cover in the guest room.  It surprisingly fit in a standard sized frame (11 x 17).

Great artwork, I really like Powell's 'The Goon'.

Last year I acquired the Comics Journal #150 cover by Mark Schultz. One of my favorite pieces by him, which I wanted to frame and hang in my den. But the shape of the image didn't fit the standard rectangular framing. I decided to do some research into my options. I was able to find a local framer who could computer laser cut the matte. It took a while and a bit of trial and error. I ended up designing the opening in Illustrator and they converted it to their CAD program. I really love the results.
Here is the framed piece, will hang it tomorrow. I didn't use my traditional double mattes like most of the rest of my inked pieces. It got too complicated with the first cutout around the comics. Hard to get the spacing consistant between the two mates. Decided on just one.
