My New Comics

This week’s best cover is Fall of Cthulhu: Godwar #1.

Conan the Cimmerian Dark Horse.

Fall of Cthulhu: God War #1, Boom Studios.

PistolFist #3, BlueWater Comics.

Cthulhu Tales #4, Boom Studios.

1985 #4, Marvel Comics.

Why is Animal Mother on the Cover of 1985 #4? ...and is that Charlie Sheen in the center there? Sorry mister Edwards, I noticed but then your swiping is rather blatant. You probably ripped off the rest of the soldiers too. Just tracing stuff sucks. Plus, the uniforms are all wrong for 1985.

Hey, Marvel it’s time to stop allowing this kinda crap.

1985: that IS terrible. Once you point out Animal Mother, you see that ALL of the images are traced and the lighting and even scale are different for each soldier.

You're also totally right that the uniforms and weapons are wrong for '85.

I might forgive it for interior art, but for a cover it's terrible. Even the tracing for the Twilight:2000 game materials at least got the weapons right and used not-well-known photos as reference.

Cthulhu will never fall!

That is a pretty crappy cover, but man, Twilight:2000, there's a blast from the past.

I marvel at their lack of creativity.

Arkonbey said...

Don: what bad pun could you have come up with if it were a DC title?

Arky – Now that you point out the scale and coloring it’s glaringly obvious. I hate that this is standard nowadays. The interior seems to be original but this cover yuck!

Heh, I always knew those T2000 game supplements’ art looked kinda trace-y

Randal – Well the Haster minions might have something to say about that…

T2000, you know I never got to play that game…

Snab - it is amazingly bad…

Arky – Dangerously Copied
