Well, I'm catching some flak on the inter-tubes for my demeanor in my critiques of these covers. I guess they are butt hurt that I'm not super sweet in my delivery of bad news. Well, get over it. Let me tell you story: I was 14 and just done a three page penciling sample that I was going to send to Marvel. But first, I had the chance to go to my first comic-book convention. Dick Giordano was a guest. Now, I hated DC comics at the time (I was a Marvel zombie then) but I figured I'd give this old man a thrill to behold my awesome talent. And when he would ultimately offer me a job on the spot (I was a bit idiotic back then/now) I would politely turn him down because Marvel was surely gonna hire me. Well, guess what, Dick ripped me a new asshole. He didn't spare any of my 14 year old feelings. And for a 2 weeks after, I couldn't walk right. But guess what? After that, everything he said made perfect sense and I forgot the harsh nature of the delivery. In other words, I got over it. And it made me a better artist.
That said, I will try to hold my sarcastic nature back as much as I can for all you sensitive types. But I'm sure you'll find something to bitch about regardless.
