I guess I didn't word that quite how I wanted. I suppose to me there are levels of unlikeable, where one may dislike a character but still enjoy the book they are in or what they contribute to the overall story. For me, Helen was not only unlikeable, but uninteresting in any way. To me she didn't really challenge Carol in any meaningful way and was annoying...as soon as she showed up getting through the book felt like wading through molasses.
Obviously this is just my opinion, as plenty of other people loved her and I don't think they're in the wrong for doing so. Just not my cuppa.
But it's not a style that generally fits 'regular' superhero series. Carol is not one of those 'quirky' characters.
Maybe on some offbeat miniseries like Legion Of Monster, that had some great unusual art and was very enjoyable!
But anyway yeah, Andrade is much better than Dexter Soy.

Why do they 'definitely' not work?
You can tell it's a human face, right? They don't look like cow heads, or a random object like a bicycle wheel. I think that's the only way somebody could objectionally fail at drawing a face.
I just checked the preview art again, and can definitely pick out two eyes, a nose and a mouth on all the figures.
You would have hated Stroman in his days on 90s X-Factor, I'm sure.
It's moments like this that I'm kind of glad that the forums aren't the sum total of comics readers.
The art is gorgeous (I really love the colour choices). It's not traditional, but it's def oozing style.
Obviously, you'll like what you like and cannot be told what to appreciate.
The line work here probably appeals to me largely because it draws up memories of Aeon Flux in my head. That makes me feel it's 100% appropriate for another heroine I love, I think. :D
Freedom is the ability to live without fear of persecution. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less.
-very far apart eyes
-Carol having high heels instead of boots
Otherwise, it's growing on me pretty fast
so what happened to Woman Magazine? did it finally go out of business?
