This will probably happen:
I like Ryan Lee's style. Really dig his take on Cloak and Dagger.
Ryan Stegman's Batman is incredible. Love the mood and shadow, use of color, great pose.
Khary Randolph's take on Jubilee is fun and then to switch gears, the take on "The Bride" from "Kill Bill", very nice. Love the "aerial" shot, great mood and pose as well.
Tom Raney's Wolverine.....W..O..W.
Even if not every artist may appeal to me, each one is very talented. I often am surprised however when some manage a piece I don't expect, and that's the fun part of this weekly thread. Please continue with it, I love it!
Mike McKone's work really stood out for me. That Hela piece...wow. Although I am not much of a Spider-Woman fan but that sketch he did of her in the "symbiote" costume is superb; the pose and use of black and white, very nice.
Mike Maihack's Harley Quinn and Catwoman weren't the usual run of the mill takes and I like his versions.
How is it Joel Gomez can do such unique and wonderful work in miniature? Always impressive.
Ron Ackins' Moon Knight is outstanding.
I dig Ryan Lee's Two-Face!
Naturally plenty more to admire in this week's thread and thanks again for finding them and sharing.
First, the nit-picking:
Opening action and fight scenes when Black Widow was involved seemed far too "herky-jerky" with the camera, too reminiscent of the Jason Bourne movies with Matt Damon. Too obvious they were trying to hide the stunt double's face all the time.
Why was there a camera right at that spot in the middle of nowhere conveniently placed when Bucky as Winter Soldier killed Howard Stark and his wife? Ummm...O....K...... Unless...unless....it was faked and staged? Hard to say.
Zemo was kind of weak to a degree, but one almost felt for him, actually. Although it is possible he will return to inflict more damage with his schemes. Even as he pointed out, did he really fail concerning what he did to the heroes?
No major villain fight scenes. They could have made use of the other "Winter Soldier" candidates but having Zemo off them was a bit of a buzz kill. I get why he did but I was looking forward to a free-for-all between them and Cap and everyone else.
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye looked kind of rough and tired in several scenes. I really like the actor but man, he didn't look very healthy in a few spots; like he just woke with a hangover.
I know it is nigh-impossible to do any of these movies without a lot of CGI, but there were some spots that were too over-the top with it. Ant-Man and Spider-Man stand out in that regard.
The kid they had portray Peter Parker...what the heck...did they CGI his HUGE frikkin' melon onto a skinny kid's body, like they did with Chris Evans in the first Captain America movie? I mean..come on. He and Zemo also sounded far too feminine with their voices.
Although as a comic book reader and fan from the "old school" I kept wondering if newer people to the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be able to follow everything, even if they had seen past Marvel movies. I think myself and only one other person in the theater chuckled or got excited about some key moments. It was eerily quiet throughout the movie regarding my own viewing, and felt out of place.
Griping over, plenty of awesome scenes, great action that WAS done right and just the overall "super hero" stuff was fantastic.
I hope we get to see more of Scarlet Witch's gams. Although she isn't sporting the classic costume, her legs made up for it. Yes I am being pervy.....
OK< great movie. 5 Stars? Maybe G-Man is too generous with his rating but I would def give it at the bare minimum 4 and can agree it would be worth 5.
Do see it if possible! I would watch it again if I could!
Holy Pepperoni. This week's line-up is just outstanding.
Nice to see more from both Sara Pichelli and Terry Dodson again.
Black Panther by Joel Gomez is great, esp given the size of the sketch. Always amazes me.
Naturally that Black Panther by Brett Booth, dare I "go out on a limb" and say fantastic?
@stahlflamme: I have to agree with those sentiments. Still a great episode but I thought the same thing.
Ryan Stegman's Sabretooth vs. Wolverine....outstanding.
The return of Joel Gomez with the Punisher well worth it.
I really dig Ryan Lee's style.
Kevin Wada's "Warrior" Wonder Woman does it for me. Wow.
Again, nice round up of art by all the artists.
