Vincent Giaranno's book "Comics Crash Course" outlines a slightly different method.
Dario Carrasco and several others now do the same thing. However, with the internet beingg the main medium for communication and the trasfering of art files, I don't think most even bother to upsize again after the scan, figuring the inker will take care of it. And, of course, with computer inking coming into it's own, it's completely possible for there to be no real ink (and if vector no real sizes) in the final product anyway.
