Cant they maintain a modern look for Antman instead of always reverting back to this 60s design. I really like the idea of his helmet changing from Antman helmet to giantman helmet

I kinda get the feeling here not everyone understands Mike Allred and his approach. I have very little interest in the Fantastic Four, but this looks great. May have to give it a go.

Allred is such an amazing artist. People need to read Madman like now.

Unfortunately I hate Matt Fraction.
kitboy33 - 12/15/2012, 6:14 AM
His art worked ok for Madman because that's how the character started from the beginning.
His art on FF is freakin hideous. Geez..look at that last panel where he's eating...wtf, he swallow an apple?
Coloring book material.
marvel72 - 12/15/2012, 6:18 AM
i'll continue reading this book but i'm not paying for it,i'll borrow my mates.
hush - 12/15/2012, 6:41 AM
That's genuinely some of the worst art work I have ever seen.
xstryker - 12/15/2012, 7:15 AM
Allred's art is not crappy. You may not like it, nothing wrong with that, but it's his well-established style. He was chosen for this book for his style, many readers of the title are fans of his style. Unless you can do better, calling it crappy or terrible is more a judgement of you than of Allred. If you want to sound halfway intelligent, say "I don't like this style of art at all."
damntree - 12/15/2012, 7:35 AM
Art is crap, story is crap, the whole idea is crap.
RobLiefeldFan - 12/15/2012, 7:50 AM
this is the only site i have seen that posts highly negative comments about mike allred's art, c'mon guys really this art is a throwback to the golden age wow we don't have to be so negative
shangho - 12/15/2012, 8:54 AM
I wonder if everyone hated Allred when he took over XForce?
ABLEE337 - 12/15/2012, 9:10 AM
I love Mike Allred's art. Loved his X-Force/X-Statix and of course Madman.
ATrueHero1987 - 12/15/2012, 9:14 AM
IDK something tells me that this is going to be added to my pull list. Something tells me that Allred won't be drawing on this book for long(like other Marvel NOW titles). Bring in Coipel!!
mctrinket - 12/15/2012, 9:30 AM
I can't get over how crappy that art is. Looks like it was done by a ten-year-old.
marvel72 - 12/15/2012, 10:09 AM

jimoakley666 - 12/15/2012, 10:17 AM
So many trolly morons. Put a link to your artwork on here before you bitch, bitches.
Temple - 12/15/2012, 10:37 AM
This is one of the best marvel now titles, thats been getting high praise and near perfect scores. If you guys buy a comic for art (which imo, think looks good and interesting in FF) instead of a good story and characters, then your a dumbass. Swamp thing has the same artwork style as allred and that gets a free pass? Hypocrites.
marvel72 - 12/15/2012, 11:22 AM
@ jimoakley666

so you like every single comic book artist on the planet..........

i didn't think so.

@ temple

i'm fan of swamp thing the writing is excellent but the artwork could be better.

why can't we have fantastic writer & artist teams,it doesn't seem too much to ask.
jimoakley666 - 12/15/2012, 11:53 AM
@marvel72 - I like the good ones. You tool.
marvel72 - 12/15/2012, 12:07 PM
@ jimoakley666

so what is the difference with people not liking allred.

you dick.

@ intruder

you can like the retro feel to it i haven't got a problem with that,its just not to my liking.

as for respect,i totally see why they respect him but i think ff is the wrong book for him.
NorrinRaddical - 12/15/2012, 4:58 PM
If you're not down with both Fraction and Allred, I've no time for you.

Children. Only children hate on Allred so much.
NorrinRaddical - 12/15/2012, 4:59 PM
I'm not talking about folks like Marvel72. There's plenty of things that aren't my taste in this world also. live and let live. But the HATE for Allred every time CBM posts new FF art makes me shake my head
NorrinRaddical - 12/15/2012, 5:01 PM
...but Marvel72 you have named some laughably abominable artists on that list.
jambabeanjuice - 12/15/2012, 10:13 PM
@Intruder - well said and totally agree with you bro.

Allred is a legend and we should be thankful that were getting new material from him. Really sad to hear that some are slamming him for his art.
xstryker - 12/16/2012, 7:52 AM
Lol, Ms. Thing's about to deep throat a banana and alll the teenage boys on this site are too busy bitching about the throwback-style art to notice.
