Worst Marvel Covers

Canada Goose online I had to give his comic a Worst in November, and as much as I hate to duplicate titles and/or creators in this category, there canada goose jacket outlet uk really aren that many that deserve it. This is one of those months were there not that many that are truly Worst, but it too weird to call the category “The Lessor of Any Evils If There Happens to be Any Evils Present,” canada goose outlet in uk so we just go with Worst. (Also? The only other contender was going to be Greg Land cover for Uncanny X Men this month.) Canada Goose online

cheap Canada Goose In this case, we once canada goose outlet seattle again have things too out of proportion, crazy perspectives that don synch up, and an over rendered paint job that doesn enhance the underlining picture but rather distracts from it. I say canada goose outlet “not enhancing” because it seems like it creating a photo realistic effect on a stylized or starkly graphic style a mismatch. I say “distracts” because the paint job canada goose outlet vip seems like I supposed to be paying attention to it rather than the original canada goose outlet edmonton composition. For example, She Hulk right arm, which is truncated canada goose outlet montreal and out of proportion anyway, but meant to be extended upward and away from her head, even though the rendering looks like it was meant to be colored canada goose jacket outlet sale as sticking straight out. cheap Canada Goose

The zig zags lend the cover some great energy, though. (Always gotta leave on a positive note!)

canada goose store Tsk, tsk! Some covers are just poorly executed and thus are held up for public execution. This month’s victim? Wolverine canada goose factory outlet vancouver 4 (2010) by Tim Bradstreet. canada goose store

canada goose coats on sale I mean, the cloud renderings are pretty while canada goose outlet orlando being undistracting, and the attitudes depicted on their faces are fine. The size relationship is perfect, too. canada goose coats on sale

buy canada goose jacket But it’s weird that the musculature on Colossus is so wrong, bubbling up in all the wrong places. And his arms seem truncated and out of proportion, just so that his hands could end up in the right position. But what position are those hands? Are they meant to be grabbing Wolverine’s neck? And why is Wolvie’s neck so elongated when you consider the distance of his chin? Are Wolverine’s claws meant to be stabbing Colossus? Because the left hand one is angled weird to really emphasize soemthing that should be so shocking, and the right hand one has suddenly grown an extra foot. Speaking of an extra foot, I think Colossus’ legs might be out of proportion, too, but it’s difficult to say as the artist deliberately hid the feet of his characters. Then there’s the inconsistent light source. If you are going to have realistic rendering, canada goose outlet factory you might as well have a realistic light canada goose jacket outlet store source, or at least one that is deliberately used. There are shadows falling all over the place here! buy canada goose jacket

Ah, “Worst Of” covers, how I love to diss thee.

canada goose clearance Ed McGuinness work and I have a love hate relationship, with “eye rollable dismissal” in place of the word love, there. Case in point She Hulks 1. You would think I would be all about his art it large, bulky, cartoony, but above all, expressive. But in fact it only appears this way at first glance. If you take a second look, there are canada goose parka outlet uk poor layout choices, odd choices of focal points, and balloony cartoony at the sake of realism. I sure that McGuinness DOES follow the old canada goose outlet in usa adage, that he must “know the rules before he can break them,” but I have to admit that when I see his stuff, all I can think of are the broken rules. canada goose clearance

canada goose deals More specifically, I don like the distorted torsos of both figures here, nor do I like the wonky distortion going on around Thundra head and neck. He chosen a difficult pose for Thundra to feature her head, but at the same time he wants to fully render the expression and the thing falls apart. She Hulk figure is composed well (aside from the torso, oddly connected left leg, and sigh inducing suggestion of nipplage) but it isn composed in conjunction with the other figure. As a result, there is a mishmash of figures, with Escher like dimension bending going on with canada goose outlet new york city Thundra right foot and arm. canada goose deals

Points are taken away from the coloring here, too, with over rendering being McGuinness cartoony style everyone, remember, if you are going to have graphically stylized art, do not have photo realistic textures! Plus, the inclusion of Hulk behind the poses is really distracting, muting the vibrant greens of the main figures. Why include the Hulk at all? If it for marketing, he really isn distinguishable, so? Oh, and if at all possible, avoid brown as a background color unless you want to sap all complementary colors entirely and leave the whole thing utterly failing to be eye catching.

canada goose clearance sale What can I say? I been kind to Deadpool Corps because I haven called it out on some pretty bad covers. But it gotten as far as issue 7 this month and I can let it go by any longer without a mention. And this is in a month that features quite a few “Worst” candidates across the board, with a lot of gross anatomy, wierd composition choices, and a whole host of “vampire alternate covers” for some reason. Is it because it October? Is it because people still think vampires are still “fresh?” Is it because they have to pander to so many alternate cover choices that they are becoming redundant? Yes, yes, and yes. canada goose clearance canada goose outlet trillium parka black sale

Canada Goose sale But I getting off topic Deadpool Corps 7 (2010) by Rob Liefeld Canada Goose sale

There seems to be some attempt at a fun display here, especially with some outer space shennanegans, but it isn pushed far enough to really be crazy and random. The whole thing is on a tilted axis, but there no variation within that axis everything has the same rotation. Plus, the forms on the figure are all wrong, with canada goose outlet parka little proportion and sense of space. The spaceship looks more like a hunk of rock, and the lens flare and gradient in the background are circa 1992. At least there is some attempt at more sophisticated canada goose uk site rendering in the dead head cowl and eyes, but it too little and too late. “Worst” it is.

Canada Goose Outlet Although I REALLY wanted to give it to this artwork, from Shadowland 4 by John Cassaday Laura Martin. yeesh. What kind of expression is this, really: Canada Goose Outlet

Hmm. I really wanted to make this Astonishing X Men cover the worst, but I guess that would be just because I think it embarrassing to be caught reading it in public. It seems one of those ideas that works better as a private joke or simply a feature on a DeviantArt site and the feature cover for on one of Marvel flagship titles. That, and I have always thought yellow to be a terrible choice for a comic cover.

But instead I give the award to Shadowland: Power Man 2. The problem here is a matter of perspective. While the actual figure of the new Power Man seems just fine, the figure of Luke Cage is all kinds of disproportionate. That, coupled with the unfortunately tangled staging of the two combined, makes the cover too muddled to be effective. It distracting how the piece confuses the eye more than guides it, and this is coupled with the fact that it too centered with no playing with dead/negative space. I add to the fact that the new Power Man color scheme isn great, with canada goose factory outlet the colors of his costume too similar to his glowing skin slash power display. Instead, why not go with complimenting or contrasting colors anything to avoid the visual confusion! Sorry Mike Perkins! You definitely deserve better than the Worst, but there just too many issues.

Canada Goose Parka Again, there wasn:t THAT much that seemed Worst about the covers for August, but there sure were a heck of a lot that were just bland. So, I sorry, Mario Alberti, for having to single out your comic cover here, but you can blame my own high standards. Canada Goose Parka

The cover has a nice asymmetrical element because of the area on the side for the logo, but I tempted to think that wasn the original design, as the whole thing seems compressed and shunted out of the way. There are other little problems that bug me, such as the elongated torso of Spider Man and the Human Torch leg shortage. I also don like it when artists get kid faces wrong, and they end up looking like miniature adults, as with the case of Franklin face, here. But the biggest problem I have is the coloring. It throws off the whole picture. The coloring is brightest and in most contrast with the green in the Human Torch, drawing your eye up there instead of toward Franklin, where the real drama is. The duplicated shadow of Venom is lost by virtue of the background that literally awash with canada goose outlet in montreal the green, instead. There is an idea of a motif, but really some other variation of colors would be better than to simply have an overlay with the entire picture. The tension is pretty dramatic, of course but that seems lost because the whole this is so muddy. I like the almost pencil like quality, however. That was nice.

Worst Marvel Cover this month?

Amazing Spider Man 636, cover by Mike Fyles

buy canada goose jacket cheap I applaud the attempt to change up the trade dress of the cover design that logo, the cover blurb, the moved indica. All of that shows some creativity and willingness to change. But the art itself is rather dull, and maybe even unfinished. Obviously, I talking about the big formless head atop the figure to the right, which I almost take for being Power Man for some reason. Part of the problem is the logo interrupting the scene, which isn:t rendered so that there is a distinction between foreground and background. I actually thought the images behind the logo were meant to be a real part of the scene, until I figured out while analyzing it that it actually a picture within a frame on the wall. If I have to regard it so deeply, than you may not have created the fully embracing kind of art needed for comic books. So I wonder if I can fault the painting (it a painting within a painted cover!) as being out of proportion? buy canada goose jacket cheap
