    Y'know? This looks so much more interesting with colour.
    Hell was full, so I came back.

    Yes, this problem has been addressed in Marvel's newest x-title, The Unhealthy X-Men.

    I agree with Ms. Mako, this piece looks much better in colour.

    That Ghost Rider is great! And, Doop - what's not to like.

    I'm trying to picture Skottie doing the art for that New Warriors relaunch which has been rumoured about and I think it would work out well. Can you imagine his Speedball?

    I agree, his art is really good, if not quite stylized, when well inked and coloured. I had a good look at the art on his page, (Del, what was that URL again?) and it could grow on me, but would have to fit a certain mood of book. His stuff would be awsome for a Marvel Age title.

    I think his artwork is better suited to cartoons from TV, or even TV animation. I like what Henry does with AF a whole lot better.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Oh, I totally prefer Henry too! I'm just saying I don't think that young's art is bad. I wouldn't want to see his style on AF. Just saying he does have tallent, though some opions I've read on other forums would differ. If I look at that, then I look at something like John Calimee, I can see a purpose and a style behind Young's work.

    Young's stuff is not a style I care for, and would probably stop me from staying with the series if I found it so jarring that it distracts me from the story, the way the artist on Paul Jenkin's Spectacular "made" me drop that book. I prefer realistic styles, not, for instance, Spider-Man drawn with size 7 quintiple wide feet and a neck that would be about four inches thick and 14 inches long.
    I get what you're saying, Ben, but comparing anyone to Calimee just seems wrong. If you really want things comprable to Calimee, go to an elementary school's art show and look at the first grader's pics on the walls.

    This reckoning falls into opinion as it is the Sasquatch cover.

    Correct, hence the "I" and "reckon" (they make it an opinion), rather than "It will be."
