    Terrible Sasquatch (is it too much to ask that an artist assigned to regularly draw a character look at a picture of that character first?), but I've seen worse.

    Worst Squatch I've ever seen, besides issue #1.

    So bad that I'm probably going to skip it and drop the title.

    The annoying thing for me is that he's captured the fur and the leg/arm length really well.
    It's just the chest proportions and the face that are 'actual' sasquatch rather than Tanaraq.

    Yeah, exactly. He's a sasquatch, not *the* Sasquatch. Big difference.

    Yesterday I read JLA / Power Rangers #2, and they had a single panel set in Melbourne. Apart from 'could somebody please turn the lights on in this comic?', my reaction was to show a friend who lived in Melbourne for over a year. (I happened to see him later that day.)
    He recognised the building featured (and told me I'd been to it), and commented that they even got the tram lines right.

    I couldn't help thinking - they do a single panel and research a city that (I assume) is on the other side of the planet from them (ie: not NYC), but these guys can't research their own IP.

    I dunno; landscapes etc. are specifics with actual photo reference, whereas the characters are fictional and open to artist interpretation.

    Ramon didn't design Sasquatch, and his drawings look more like 'I heard a word, I drew that' than 'interpretation'.

    I've never particularly liked it when the original artist goes and carefully crafts the look, the design, all the characteristics of a character or their major prop, then the next artist comes along and just draws a generic prop. eg: (not a real example) Artist 1 designs a very carefully designed and researched katana, appropriate to the era, with particular distinctive flourishes that tell you about the character who wields it. The fans understand it, get to know it, think it's amazing. Then Artist 2 comes along and draws a generic gladius. Impressive re-interpretation or laziness? You decide.

    Yup!
    A pretty set-up heavy issue. No major AF developments.

    In #3, Sasquatch says (carrying a virus-studying machine) "Nerd stuff is heavy".

    I'm beginning to think they didn't research Alpha Flight at all.
