Exactly what Joel said. Steve Dillon is hot garbage. He's up there with Greg Land in the land of tracers and people who can't draw emotions on faces to save their life.
He can't even compare to the genius of pencilers such as Reis, Yu, Coipel, Allred, Aja, and so many others.
Thank you! Yes, I agree with this 110%! God, Coipel. So much love.
I've been reading them fair as long as I can remember over 20 years now
I've been working in the industry for about 9 years now. If you really want to get into the business you really just have to bs with one of the owners all the time, maybe ask to work there for store credit to start. Just say no when they ask you to work a comic con, that shit blows
Wow, loooong time! That's incredible! See, I bs all the time, it just doesn't seem to do anything. No one where I am ever goes to comic con. Though, that's primarily because I live in the middle of nowhere Kansas. I tried to do the same when I lived in Tennessee, but no one ever seems to want any help, even if I'm offering to do all the heavy lifting and stuff. Hell, I'd work for almost nothing since I just read scans of everything and buy what I need to complete my collection or stuff I really, really like.
The Gambit series was Garbage. Read Hawkeye right now. The best book on the market with the best artist.
Again, I agree 110%.
That's his style though, I can see it as a love it or hate it though.
And Joel, to compare him to liefeld is criminal, liefeld hasn't drawn a background in 5 years. (Seriously look at any comic he drew, the backgrounds are just gradients )
Nope! Totes on the same level as Liefeld, backgrounds be damned. What Liefeld does to backgrounds is what Dillon does to faces.
That's a solid read.
And anyone that isn't reading the new Thor from Jason Aaron is crazy. I think that's easily the best book going now. That and chew
I don't know about absolute best, but that is a damn good Thor book. Haven't picked up Chew since the first couple of arcs, but I enjoy it a great deal. For me, favorite superhero book is Superior Spidey for Marvel and Batman Inc for DC. I expect Batman Inc to start sucking soon though, since that filler issue about the Batman of Japan sucked balls.
