UNCANNY X-MEN #2

(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Greg Land

In a world that's never hated or feared mutants more, there is only one constant: BIGGER THREATS REQUIRE MORE THREATENING X-MEN. Refusing to accept one more mutant death, the most ruthless mutants on Earth have banded together to proactively mow down their enemies. But with a team populated by relentless killers, one question applies above all others: Can they stay away from each other's throats long enough to sever their targets'?

Rated T+

The action panels don't look bad but someone but Land should be doing faces. Doesn't look good.

Really, the problem is not that the face dosen't look good... the real problem is that he can do ONLY ONE great face, and the faces are always the same! I can identify Mystique from previous female character draw by Land, only because she is red and blue...

Yea it's true all of Lands faces are pretty much the same... some even exact copies of one another.

@thatlyn_yoaeg_ill_rymmin: good point but I mean with as much of his work as I've read, once you've seen the same too much it loses its appeal and I have to say at this point it really does not look good to me whatsoever.

The art of the first edition was okay, but this is very bad.

Art looks just fine to me. The only problem I see is that it's too "open" to color. Land appears to be doing a lot less shading than he usually does and the colorist isn't taking up the slack, so it has kind of a coloring book feel, without a lot of volume to it. but the actual drawing, per se, looks good.

Ugh Freakin' Land. Only that guy could make me NOT buy a comic with Magneto (my favorite comic character) and Psylocke (Top 10 Fav) in it. His art is such complete garbage. Land could make an orgy boring.

That is what he is saying, Greg Land traces pornstars faces, plenty of thread of the pictures he traced on comic book forums.

Hmmm... The art looks fine to me. Is it because y'all know that he traces? Cause I have seen some professional comic artists that NEED to be tracing vs the stuff they actually put out.

I went back and looked closely at it after reading the comments and I don't see anything offputting.

Why? Is he not allowed to dislike an artstyle? Does he have to be a better artist to criticize Land's art?

Is there some kind of rule that restricts an artist from drawing in the background within panels containing an action sequence I don't know about? It seems that with Land you either get static figures exchanging dialogue amidst at least SOME representation of the setting or awkwardly positioned fight scenes with no background at all.

Sidenote: Every pose Mystique strikes in these pages has her legs wide open, and right there at the very bottom...I feel like that tongue is directed at us. He's laughing at us. Bastard.

Didn't love the first issue, but I'm hopeful that it will pick up. Looking forward to this one.

Or maybe we're hating because all his females look completely indistinguishable due to the fact that he traces the same handful of porn actresses for each one. I'd rather see art from Ray Charles' animated corpse than spend money on another Land book. The dude is hot garbage.
