Image artists drew better boobs
However on a serious note........Greg Capullo's work on Batman is fantastic, IMO
"...so Hitler sends Iron Jaw's son to America to get revenge on Crimebuster." S.H.
Life looks better in black and white.
It was an exciting time, and I bought the first couple of issues of some of the Image stuff. To this day, I still immensely respect McFarlane for establishing Image, but felt then, and still do, he got very, very lucky. Spawn is probably the single more overrated character of the last 30 years IMO, despite its immense success.
Lee was very appealing but the stories were lame, and by the time Ellis and Moore had helped out, I was beyond caring.
There was some good stuff from then, but I think what makes most of us wince is how artificial the bubble was, driven by speculation which fueled some upstarts to crank out stuff as fast as they could and caring less about quality or more about gimmicks.
Agreed. Sienkiewicz, like most artists, found his own voice eventually. You have to learn somewhere, from someone, as an example. Reading interviews, esp with artists, they cite multiple influences. Some, like Sienkiewicz, eventually sort of grow into some stylization of their own being a blend of A + B + C and their own flair.
