    Who did the first cover?

    It’s bollocks and I want to avoid more like it.

    Are you fucking high? That’s John Romita. He’s as much a cornerstone in Marvel’s history as Stan Lee. You gotta be in your early 20’s, no? I bet you hate Kirby too.

    Captain America looks like he’s wishing he’d listen to his parents and gone to law school, because the job at the lumber mill just won’t cover the bills this month.

    Wolverine looks like a really enthusiastic speed addict with a gimp leg.

    The helicarrier behind looks like Robbie the Robot on steroids. And also some of Wolverine’s speed.

    I like most of Romita’s work but this is just terrible.

    I don’t like or dislike Kirby. He’s not great at capturing movement though.

    You are obviously a goddam mongoloid. See if you can manage to read this without exhausting yourself.

    That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Half the time can’t see what the hell’s happening because he covers the page with sound effects, white space or block colour.

    Just because something’s old doesn’t mean it’s good, you fucking gomer. Believe it or not artists have made progress in the million years since Kirby was drawing.

    STOP. Just. Stop. He has a museum. A museum. Any artist that has made progress in the last “million years”reveres Kirby, hence the name KING. I’m embarrassed for you, truly. Now hush. Go back to reading your Spawn, Witchblade, Darkness and Manga.

    You just want me to stop because you realise how foolish you look.

    Kirby may have pioneered the art style that revolutionised the industry but the world has moved on. People lay praise at the feet of Henry Ford as the father of the modern automobile but no one wants to commute in a 20hp car with a crank start.

    The fact remains that the Romita cover is shit and you’re shit for liking it just because Romita did it.

    I understand this guy might be a “big deal” in the comic world, but the Wolverine pic is easily the worst out of the lot. It looks like fanart.
    Also spiderman and iceman are bros. That fight makes me sad. 🙁

    The last one has to be the first time in the history of Marvel comics where two female characters appear on a cover and neither is showing her butt. I’m not kidding about that, check out eschergirls.tumblr.com/ for hilarious examples of comic heroines bending over backwards (literally) to show cleavage and butt at the same time.

    They’re being inconsistent about which team Beast and Wolverine will be on. I a previous image we’ve seen, they were Avengers. Of these, the one I want to see is Cyclops vs. Hawkeye–two masters of spacial awareness constantly trying to find a weak spot in the other. It could be fun.

    It could be fun – but it probably won’t be. It never is. Fans talk about what would be a great mash-up, but fans are the last goddamn people you should ever listen to if you own a successful product.

    You give them what they want and, the next thing you know, it’s Alien vs. Predator.

    Could just be me, but I think mutant powers have a clear advantage. Now where’s Gambit? XD

    Clearly the inker for the first pic is at fault. JRJR’s pencils were probably fine ’til some hack got his grubby dung forks on ’em.

    Jesus Christ, put your glasses back on and read my post again. I’m not saying Kirby’s bad because his work is old, I’m saying just because it’s old doesn’t automatically make him the best artist for all time. He had his day; his day is over. Let’s take a for example here; This is a Kirby fight scene. I’ll summarise: “What is happening my eyes refuse to acknowledge this liney madness” This is part of a combat scene by Darick Robertson. Take special note of how there’s space around the characters not filled with motion lines; it’s easy to keep… Read more »

    Dude. It’s called technology. Kirby did what he did with A PENCIL. Robertson used a COMPUTER. You really, REALLY going to compare the two? For real? Any, and I mean ANY comic artist today looks up to Kirby. If you won’t except that, you are just a dummy. Sorry. You’re arguing just to win the argument, even though you know I’m right, so it ends here, on my turf. I will not look at this thread again. Boom.

    Winners generally don’t flee the argument like frightened rabbits.

    Do your research. Darick Robertson uses pencils and ink. And even if he didn’t, even if Robertson had a giant supercomputer that he fed his thoughts into to draw his panels for him, this argument is about STYLE, not TECHNIQUE.

    You are to Romita and Kirby regarding advances in comic book drawings to what 12-year-olds Facebook flash games fanatics that refuse the existence of Newgrounds are to the Internet.

    Suck it up, you big mopey dick.
