I would be PISSED if I was that jelly goop mutant.

Art work sucks. It's so sloppy... The designs just look... undefined and out of proportion.
MutantEquality - 2/7/2013, 8:49 AM
Killing endangered animals just to train some kids you don't like? I thought Logan was Canadian not American. lol ok ok i gest
MutantEquality - 2/7/2013, 8:54 AM
I'm more of a "is the story good and worth a look" than "if it's not Jim Lee the art sucks."

so I haven't picked up this title because of hypocrite Wolverine trying to play daddy to Xaviers kids. So can anyone tell me if it actually is any good?
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 2/7/2013, 9:03 AM

I thought Dog was Sabretooth?

@monkeyballs3 - There's nothing clumsy about it. The composition, characters, backgrounds, expressions and story telling are very well done. It's his personal style, but it's very well thought out and very accomplished. It may not be a 'style' to your taste but you seriously can't know the first thing about illustration if you think this is clumsy.

GLprime2814 - 2/7/2013, 10:10 AM
I read the first 3 issues and it was awful. The simple fact that the worlds most dangerous man is now a nanny just doesn't work, even in the content tht he's trying to keep Xavier's dream alive.
RyGoR - 2/7/2013, 10:37 AM
It's a good series Aaron has done well to portray Logan as the "professor x" now with him gone its definitely worth checking out! Artwork can be iffy but I like the abstract artists they get for this title

Btw it's funny as hell too Quentin Quire is hilarious lol
jimoakley666 - 2/7/2013, 11:39 AM
@monkeyballs3 - On the cover, that is Quintin Quire with the rifle. He's an arse-hole who would probably shoot at Wolverine over the dinosaur because he doesn't like the X-Men and is in Wolverine's custody. He is the one who started the riot at Xavier's.

On that first page the girl is pouting. Logan is 'presenting' the Savage Land.

It's not hard. And it's not clumsy. This is great artwork. Whether you like it or not.

And why are you congratulating me?
jimoakley666 - 2/7/2013, 11:44 AM
@GLprime - But that's the funny thing about it. He's not a nanny. In almost every issue he wants to kill the kids. He's going through some serious anger management issues trying to run that school and the fun part is that you know it's a case of when, and not if, he'll completely lose his temper. It's been stated several times that the only reason he can manage without doing some serious damage to the kids is due to Kitty, Beast and Iceman calming him down and reminding him why it is he's doing this.

I'm loving the book myself. It's proper fun science fiction / action adventure.
OverfiendB - 2/7/2013, 12:33 PM
it's got that porn comic art style!
jimoakley666 - 2/7/2013, 1:20 PM
@- Firstly, I was joking. It's just a case of perspective. You know, big cows, little cows, far away. Ha.

The pout is an exaggeration. Artistic licence and all. No more so than how Rizzo draws Dizzy in 100 Bullets.

The image of Wolverine looks nothing like that image you posted. No pointed finger, his hand is by his side, no twisted hips or pose.

Come on. You said congratulations because you wanted to be toolish, and you know it. I made no assumptions about you, just pointed out something obvious. You feel it's okay to trash someone's hard work, I'd imagine because you've never had to do this kinda thing yourself. As a fellow illustrator, I think that's a bit off. To show no respect for time or craft, whether you 'like' it or not. There are a load of illustrators who I'm not keen on, but to call them clumsy and slag them off. Why? Just say, "not my thing". Don't insult their craft.

And 'comic book art' is three words. Not two.

What am I looking at?
Durango95 - 2/7/2013, 2:07 PM
I havent read X-Men since Whedon started. Who the hell are these assholes?
KungFuGee - 2/7/2013, 9:36 PM
This is annoying as hell. The art is just not for me - there is talent there, just not my cup of tea. The dialogue and premise just annoying.
jimoakley666 - 2/8/2013, 12:51 AM
@monkeyballs3- I don't care if you disagree with me. That's how debate starts. I like that. Why can't you get that not everyone hass a massive ego?

You don't know about illustration. I'm telling you flat. No assumption.

Your 'examples' are invalid. It's a style. It's not a rule book, again, indicating you know NOTHING about illustration past what YOU like.

I'm not trying to insult your intelligence. You're trying to be cocky and making yourself look ignorant and silly. Come at the conversation in an adult fashion and we can chat. It's fun if you play nice.

So again, you are being toolish for no reason. Which is a slang word. It implies that you are acting like a tool. Which is more polite than some other choice words.

And really, you dislike the character / books so much that you take all this time debating them? Crikey. I care about the books and characters, who I think are more valid these days because they are well rounded, developed characters. Wolverine is not a stereotype who just kills. There was always more to him. And he never whines. Unlike most of the 'fans'. He get's angry. That's the thing with ongoing stories. You develop or go stale.

@caveman - A website.

@Durango95 - Read and you will see.
pepe - 2/8/2013, 1:53 AM
Dont see Dog...
jimoakley666 - 2/9/2013, 10:04 AM
@monkeyballs3 - You were getting snippy like a child so I thought I'd bring you down a peg or two. Don't take it personally though. This who conversation has been typed with a wry smile on my face and not a bit of anger.

You just go running off in a hissy fit though. As always. You throw what you think are jibes at people but they're really just... hissy fits. We've had a run in before where you did exactly the same.

I never criticised your intellect. Why would I? I don't know you. You're coming across as being a little insecure about that point.

Also, I'm defending the craft behind the work. Not the style. As I've said before (what were you saying about being lazy and getting your facts straight, pot, kettle and black) if you don't like the style, fine. Just don't slag off the guy and say he doesn't know what he's doing, when clearly he does. He's been hired to draw a Marvel comic.
You, however, have not.
