Were they any good? I read the first issue and it seemed decent enough but never got the chance to read the rest.

Yes,a very good arc with great Chuck Austen art

(to the austen haters , a pre-emptive F.U.)

Cool. So how many issues did he do? Was it just the one arc?

I think it was just the first six issues, follwoed by rucka, who had a great 12-18 ish run

I can't say I'm a fan of Bendis' work on that book. And sonny, it's pretty much just Austen's writing that's an abomination.

can't say as i was all that impressed with austen's artwork on the book, but it was still a damn sight better than his writing. art just felt too flat.

only read an issue here and there, and while i can't necessarily say it was some of bendis' best work, mediocre bendis is still better than good work from many other writers..

I understand that Blandy, but the guy gets wayyyy too much grief from very ignorant asses, who react to his name with a pavlovian-like hatred.

(none that i've seen in this thread)

The Rucka/Pagulayan issues are really good.

I never read those. I kinda forgot about the book after I dropped it during Bendis' arc. Do they have trades? If so, maybe someday I'll try them out.

I agree. While his art doesn't do much for me, it's not like it makes me want to gouge my eyes out so I can't see it anymore.

Don't think I saw it. I never got into Ghost Rider at all until Ennis' current mini.

EDIT But wait, I think he did some work on Flash. Yeah. The suck.

if there's one place that manga influenced artwork (particularly shitty manga influenced artwork) doesn't belong, it's in a horror title.

Calling a fiery skull guy on a giant motorcycle "horror" is pushing it... ;-)

But, maaaaan... that costume they gave him around that time (First drawn by Salvador Larocca, it should be noted)? The clown suit? Horrendous...

most Marvel comics like that all look the same to me and even i could tell Elektra was pretty bad
