J. Scott Campbell looks like something he drew in about five minutes !

It's so bland and generic and shows nothing that is going on in the book.
If you really have a look at all the Thor variant covers that have come out they are just poses of Thor done by differently.
This smacks of the same formula used in the last part of Jurgens run.

We had this problem with the last Thor series

I thought Marvel learned their lesson on this ?


Plus I think they should just stop with th variants.
The first couple issues were ok, but five in a row ??

come on..

Taking into account his past work, he CAN do better. I'd almost have another Michael Turner variant cover instead of this piece of crap on paper.

No kidding. It's really kinda sad that -outside of the Del'otto cover- the variants are just lackluster. At least Coipel's covers -or at least, the ones for #3, 4 and now 5 have SOME indication of what's going on inside the issue itself.
