Been caught soliciting: DC, Marvel & Image, August 2011.



Darwyn Cooke not trying too hard. Ladronn working very hard indeed. A big mad brain from Dave Johnson's big mad brain. Marvel's Punisher relaunch: Bryan Hitch draws a grizzled white dude shooting black kids.  But he looks sad while he's doing it, so it's okay.

wow. I love that Darwyn Cooke one. but who's the dude with the ring? obviously, it's a Green Lantern, but, surely, that's not Alan Scott, is it? 'cause, if it is, the new costume sucks chunks.

Yeah, saw that, looks like the KINGDOM COME Alan Scott get-out.

That punisher cover once again highlights the deep complex characterisations that goes along with being a charmless sociopath. At least Bullseye cracks a smile.

My Grud, a superhero that Darwyn Cooke can't make good, or at least successfully & productively obscure? That Green Lantern costume is ... somebody's having a laff, ain't they?

I know I shouldn't, but the Deadpool cover makes me giggle.

But the Punisher cover. Just looking at it gives me the headache cognitive dissonance inspires. Because there's no context, it feels deeply unpleasant. Which of course may be the idea; THIS is what a psychotic scumbag of a pseudo-superhero criminal-murdering psychopath looks like when he's SHOOTING YOU IN THE HEAD.

But then, there's the awful sense we're supposed to sorry for him in his heart-tearing duty. Cake, eat and still keep.
