Joe No More!
How do we check that we're all squared away with founder's shipping/name info?
I will be attending Heroes Con later this month and to say that I’m excited to meet Johnathan is an understatement. As an annual subscriber will I have any perks at the con?
Bill Sienkiewicz. You have to understand my first real exposure to him was New Mutants as a 12 year old. His stuff was hard to digest as a 12 year old. 3 years later and ever since he has been a top 5 artist for me.
My guess is that Spidey artist was Marcos Martin?
When he took over Cable around issue 48 or so with James Robinson on words I was about ready to Chuck the book off my pull list after having a year and a half of fill in artists after Ian Churchill left.
I was so used to the Marvel house style that this huge departure from the norm threw me completely. I was not familiar with Kirby either so the comparisons fell flat with me.
However I began to notice the amount of detail that was poured into each page. The visceral energy that crackled (see what I did there 😉) in his action scenes.
Then with Joe Casey on bored the book grew into something else and I was devastated when they both left the book and their storylines were co-opted into something else, something less.
Beautiful art and storytelling in a time that just wasn’t ready for it.
Charlie Adlard. When Adlard first took over for Tony Moore on The Walking Dead, I was apoplectic (in the most minor version of that word). But over time, it became impossible for me to imagine anyone but Charlie there, and I realized what an effective character actor and storyteller he was. He defined the book, even if at first I just wanted more of Moore.
(It took me like two arcs. It wasn't that dramatic.)
I honestly can’t think of any artists that my opinion turned around much. There are artist that I liked, but feel have improved significantly since I first saw their work. Frank Quitely has always had an amazing sense of story telling, but I felt like his characters’ faces, especially the women all looked similar. Over the years they’ve become much more unique, but still keeping his overall aesthetic. Having a great sense of story was always more important to me than raw talent. I don’t miss the early Image pose splash pages that did little to convey what was actually happening.
Will the 3W3M team be at NYCC?
Some artists I now love but didn’t really enjoy at first: Andrea Sorrentino, Martin Simmonds and Lenil Francis Yu. I was a fool and was soon won over!
Nick Roche and Alex Milne of Transformers fame.
Went back and looked at the issues. I forgot about the Paparazzi arc which was early. My memory seemed to focus on a storyline with Shocker which was later on. I stand corrected.
I hope he’s going to get DC out the mud.
Awesome story! Thanks for sharing. I loved VALLARS and I can't wait for GODS. This is all such exciting work I am hype for anything that drops lol.
Frank Robbins! Oh, how I complained and then slowly but surely came to love him. Now it borders on obsession. Same with Toth. I needed some education and once I got it, there was no looking back.
JRJ took me forever to get used to. I still am up and down on Ed McGuiness. One I significantly struggle with to this day is Eric Canate.
