Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Teaser revealed for Avengers Vs X-Men #12 in October. Marvel has stated that there will be a single host of the Phoenix by the time this is over. I'm just going to assume that this is Hope and not Jean (not that I would be disappointed if it were, I just find it unlikely).

EDIT: Here's the actually link with the teaser...

Probably Hope cause the Jean that's going to be around is the time displaced late teen version of Jean before she becomes the Phoenix, right?

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Just finished reading Avenging Spider-Man #11. Zeb Wells has written a couple touching and emotional Peter Parker stories. This was a great Peter/Aunt May reflection piece as they remember Uncle Ben's death. I could not stand the art work in this issue. I don't even know who drew the book, but it reminded me of "King of the Hill" or "Beavis and Butthead" animation. I don't mind the style for those shows, but it was really out of place here and almost took away from the story, which was fantastic.

It was drawn by Steve "Preacher" Dillon!!!

It was a good issue but it had no place being an "Avenging" issue. This is supposed to be a super hero crossover book. Why not stick this story in ASM proper?

Steve Dillion's art is very recognizable, after all he draws the exact same face, for males or females, for everyone with only extremely minor variation

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Yeah, I haven't really read "Preacher". It's one of those comics that I have on my "yet to read list". I still maintain though that it didn't work for this issue.

It looks great for Preacher, but everything else he's done looks kinda bad. I guess because I saw Preacher first, and since he can only draw one face, it's "Preacher face" to me, lol.

Dillon was on some early 90s Hellblazer, too.

I was looking through it, and I don't mind it that much. But looking back at #10, it is very different and I could see where that could be annoying.

Dillon's one of those guys I call a "competent artist." There's absolutely nothing wrong with his work, but it's not very exciting. I think he does better on the non-superhero books.
