> 1) Gary Frank is a weird choice to draw Superman. His characters all look psychotic, like they want to gnaw on human bones.

It isn't Frank as much as Jon Sibal's inking. Cam Smith inked Frank during his run on SUPERGIRL and it looked much better. Dave McCaig's coloring doesn't help, either. He's using very pale colors for the flesh and deeper, richer colors for the costumes.


Frank has always had abhorrent anatomy, in my opinion -- his heads are always disproportionately large compared to his bodies, for instance. In addition, he's not very dynamic, I don't think. He's no great shakes to me.
