So here's a place for us to shoot the breeze and chat about comics in general. Feel free to talk about comics and all related topics. Writers, artists, inkers colourers, favourite comics, etc...
So today I read the first Fred Hembeck drawn issue of Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-man. A few months ago I didn't even know it existed.
Whilst Hembeck is not a bad artist by any stretch of the imagination, he isn't a style I would normally associate with Spidey.
Y'know what I learnt today? It doesn't matter what style the art is in as long as it succeeds in telling the story. After three or four pages I wasn't even noticing the art anymore. I read it again just to look at the art and see how well it told the story.
Maybe it is just the way my brain works, but the art should first and foremost tell the story, not showcase the artists talent.
By my standard Fred Hembeck is a great fit for superhero comics.
Also, I miss Assistant Editors month. Except for the Trial of Reed Richards, that story worked in spite of Assistant Editors month, not because of it.
