Quote:I'll say this; Matt Fraction is writing the kinds of stories that Greg Land was born to draw. That's all you need to know.
Eventually I'll just have to get around to sampling it myself, since I've also heard very good reviews about it from people recommending the title to me. I haven't gotten every piece of work by Fraction, but the stuff I have gotten, Immortal iron Fist, Casanova, and his Thor Ages of Thunder stuff, has given me a generally positive view of his work.
Quote:The coloring by Christian Lichtner was XBox-style " brown-shading " that completely ruined any way the art might have worked. I'm not the biggest Joe Mad fan ( I can see a lot in his work to like, but his anatomical structures are very similar to those of Rob Liefeld ), but had he received proper coloring, the book would have been worth it for the visuals alone ( much like Red Hulk ).
You may have a point about the coloring, but I will say that Madureira's work isn't any more anatomically disorderly than any of the other more cartoony-styled comic artists around, and in many respects still adds in more detail and rendering than most.

Quote:The best covers are those which have a simple, iconic issue that conveys some story information, even if just by design. John Cassaday may have fallen into that poster-art school of covers with Astonishing X-Men, but at least he picked really striking images instead of stock poses ( my favorite was the one with Hank's blue cat paw holding a framed photo of human Beast ).
Cassaday had his moments here and there. That issue w/ the numerous skulls on the cover is another that stands out.
Quote:Iron Patriot(Norman Osborn): Either Ian Buchanan(Ultra-Humanite) or Jeffrey Combs(Scarecrow, Question)
Quote:The guy who does his voice on the current Spectacular Spidey cartoon is very good, but either would work ( even if I had a weird image of the Goblin rambling about Agelets and their true, sinister purpose )
Quote:Ms. Marvel(Moonstone): Tara Platt(Naruto - Temari)
Quote:Good choice, even if Temari mellowed out greatly, something that never stuck for Karla.
There were a few moments in the pre-Ellis T-Bolts, but it's true, they never really lasted.
Quote:Ares: Terrence C. Carson
Sentry: George Newbern
Quote:- Why mess w/ what works?
Hopefully now no one will object to me pitching Kevin Conroy for Kyle Richmond...
Quote:Captain Marvel(Noh-Varr): Michael Lindsay(Bleach - Urahara, Scryed - Mujo)
Quote:No familiarity with Noh-Varr beyond his few appearances in Dark Avengers, but Urahara could work.
You haven't read the Grant Morrison/JG Jones Marvel Boy mini-series? It's really quite good. (admittedly, I am a Grant Morrison fan, so I may be biased) I think you can see in the work that Grant was in a weird little creative transitional period, mixing elements of what he would later use in his then-current New X-Men style and what he would later do w/ Seaguy, We3, Seven Soldiers, and even All-Star Superman.
Quote:Hawkeye(Bullseye): Michael Rosenbaum(Flash, Deadshot)
Quote:Brilliant, just brilliant!
Quote:Spider-Man(Venom): Robert Englund(Felix Faust, Riddler, Vulture)
Quote:Englund could certainly do the job, but those voices are for cultured, intelligent characters, something I'd never associate with Mac Gargan even before his desire for brains.
Quite frankly, I was just looking for something that would bring more to the table than what the character comes off as currently, with his "Rhaargh! Eat Brains!" shtick.
Quote:Wolverine(Daken): Dan Woren(Bleach - Byakuya)
Quote:My pick was Dante Basco from Avatar, as while Prince Zuko is a better character than Daken ever will be, both have daddy issues stamped across their faces ( literally in Zuko's case ). Haven't seen enough of Bleach to recognize that reference.
Woren, at least in his Byakuya role, has a rather deep, sullen, almost monotone style. I'm flexible w/ a choice for Daken, since all i care about is that he sounds distinctly different than Wolverine.
