Where can get tutorials or links to tutorials that give you tips on how to color illustrations i.e like marvel, dc, dark horse comics or if any one has any personal tips could you be nice and send me by email a good run down on tips of coloring like comic book pros do. Can't seem to find any online "comicbook coloring". tut

I know its best to come up with your own style but I'm looking for the printed comic book look. I've seen alot of you great artist have drawings that look like these professional comic drawings and figured you have tips on how to color. Dont get me wrong I know how to draw just the coloring I want to master and you can't master anything with out asking for help.
for example:http://www.dccomics.com/media/product/8/8/8869_400x600.jpg

basically all i want to know whats the best brushes to use in photoshop either with pencil tool or brushtool selected to get this type of look "printed texture" look (sorry i'm a noob for western comic book style coloring)

thanks
