Silver Surfer would unfortunately annihilate those guys in a few seconds.
WombRaider - 6/19/2014, 4:45 PM
Just like Amazing Spider-man, terrible writing and terrible artwork!

Potential hint at things to come in the MCU?

Terrible art!

Allred is one of my favorite artists but this is definitely some of his least great art. Cosmic scenery doesn't fit him.
monkeyballs - 6/19/2014, 5:03 PM
It's not terrible art but it's not good. Very bland looking. It's like they are attempting to pay homage to 70's & 80's simple style art (when Silver Surfer and the GotG were at their best as far as characters go) but got lazy with the colors and cut some corners using their computers. I don't know. I am a big fan of "less is more" so I can appreciate the simplicity of the artwork. But it's the coloring that is off-putting to me for some reason.

Can Star-Lord please go back to his 2008 look, helmet and all?
ThePowerCosmic - 6/19/2014, 5:05 PM
This is a good book so far but it needs to be great. So far Alred's FF was better.

I do love Allreds pop art style though! This kind of art just reminds me of the Silver age era which is my favorite period in comics.
blackandyellow - 6/19/2014, 5:06 PM
I hate Mike Allred's style. It offends me on a personal level.
YeezusWept - 6/19/2014, 5:11 PM

Yeah, Allred is very 60's pop art inspired, but unfortunately it isn't a versatile style. I think he's kind of phoning it in as well, doesn't seem like he's passionate about this comic. His FF art was cool.
staypuffed - 6/19/2014, 5:17 PM
I cannot believe people like Mike Allred. His artwork is absolute garbage.
Ramiel - 6/19/2014, 5:17 PM
This book needs Ron Lim.
YeezusWept - 6/19/2014, 5:19 PM
It's unfortunate that FF had some weak ass writing, and from Fraction nonetheless. I don't think he cared for that story at all. It sucks because I liked the unlikely group of characters.

LMAO dio. I run on Mike Allred and Jameson whisky.
Starkasm - 6/19/2014, 5:27 PM
Lol @ nova

This art is atrocious.
Surfer looks like Marilyn Manson.
NightForce - 6/19/2014, 5:37 PM
This book looks like shit
show the Surfer some damn respect Marvel
YeezusWept - 6/19/2014, 5:46 PM
This isn't Liefeld we're talking about here. Allred's flat shading/coloring style may not be for everyone but the man is talented.

@staryeezus yes, he can draw people well, even if it's stylized. but the art is bad because his backgrounds are so lazy and theres nothing interesting about them. he cant do perspective at all either.
Mercwitham0uth - 6/19/2014, 7:00 PM
Ugh that horrible art.
JredTheRed - 6/19/2014, 8:34 PM
i think its the coloring that throws me off. just looks like a kids coloring book.
JredTheRed - 6/19/2014, 8:51 PM
@StarYeezus - yea that actual drawings he does are great. Once they add color is when i dont like it.
CharlesLord - 6/19/2014, 9:54 PM
i love the surfer and id check out the books if it werent for this terrible looking art
shamo - 6/19/2014, 9:57 PM
One of the best artists in the buisness. Not sure why people don't like him.
3DWitchHunt - 6/19/2014, 11:09 PM
Great art.
loki668 - 6/20/2014, 12:39 AM
After spending all that time with Surfer in space, who knows WHAT they were up to? She, uh, may need a napkin.

Bucky - 6/20/2014, 3:22 AM
I really like the art.

Allred's stuff recently in this and the last bunch of issues of FF hasn't really been him at his best, i don't think. i still like it more than most stuff out there, but theres something lazy and blunted about it. maybe it's coloring is different.

if u look at what StarYeezus posted, and even more recent examples before's great stuff. which is odd becuz you'll still see him do classic Allred on covers for Batman 66. i think it probably has to do with realistically meeting the needs of a full book month after month. this is completely speculation, but i get the feeling he just kinda went... [frick] this, i just gotta get this shit done, but i got a life too. and they redefined what the entire process was and it's just not as good as stuff that he could spend more time on. like older Madman and stuff.

it's also too, and this completely projection from me, and speculatory also, but i feel like Dawn is like this stand in for him. she seems to be the only one who he pays any attention to, like makes her look okay. everything around her, Surfer included, feels almost to me like intentionally made to look like shit almost. u know? haha, it's weird. i don't think he's into it and i can't imagine it lasting very long. why does he want to make a bunch of shit?

he's a great artist, at some point he's gonna say... look this isn't worth it, [frick] this and just take the money and run.

this issue just looks awful. i don't know why Captain Marvel and Venom have to wedge their [frick]ing asses into everything GOTG does now. can't we just [frick]ing have GOTG be what they're supposed to be? why does this have to be so goddam stupid, u know? Captain Marvel just doesn't make any sense. quit trying to ram her down everyone's throat. maybe make her an actual character that's worth something instead of a costume, and there will be an honest demand for her. and if she is a character worth something, then Marvel is doing a [frick]ing terrible job of showing us this fact.

sometimes they just make no sense to me. this just looks [frick]ing awful.

Kelly DeConnick just sucks.
i really don't like her.

i know she has nothing to do with this Silver Surfer book, but everytime i see Captain Marvel now, i just think of how much Kelly DeConnick is annoying and fakey and just sucks.

She should be working at DC where her kind of fake pseudo characterisms would fit right in. Captain Marvel is so lame now.
dethpillow - 6/20/2014, 5:35 AM
she's all like "hey , freaky friday!!!!"
i'm Captain Marvel.
dethpillow - 6/20/2014, 5:36 AM
she's always like " u wouldn't believe the headache i got.

[frick] Captain Marvel, dude. get an actual writer to write her books.
god Kelly DeConnick sucks.
dethpillow - 6/20/2014, 5:37 AM
Kieron Gillen. he'd do a great Captain Marvel book. do that, Marvel.
dethpillow - 6/20/2014, 5:39 AM
everyone just gives her a goddam pass for some reason.

she's messing with stuff that isn't hers now.
