    90s comic book art was terrible in general, and Trimpe did some pretty awful art. He shouldn't have experimented. Check out the Fantastic Four Annual #25- everyone looked pissed off, had skinny little feet, and the Black Knight had an enormous ass. :guffaw:

    I seem to remember reading Trimpe had no choice, he was told to drawing that style or GTFO.

    Then maybe his art was bad on purpose? I can believe that.

    I'm pretty sure he changed it up on purpose. I flipped through a copy of FF Unlimited #1 and the art was just awful. His original style was much better.

    I just wonder what possessed him to give the Black Knight such a huge ass. I mean, really:

    That's what, a light sabre?

    Stretchy trumps super heated plasma blade?

    That's how asleep at the wheel Herb was?

    Unless Herb drew a sword, and then someone corrected the art later on?

    They never went into it, but Reed was testing a new kind of unstable molecule that was invincible. Unfortunately, it gave him prostate cancer; and after they took out his equipment, Reed lost one of his abilities to stretch. That's the real reason he lost interest in Sue.

    Black Knight had a laser sword in the 90s.

    The tiny feet and ignorance of foreshortening bothers me more.

    Those skinny ankles look painful.

    It wasn't ignorance, the guy knew how to draw. It was the opposite, he was mimicking the other popular artists that were ignorant in basic understanding of anatomy and perspective.

    Sadly, he succeeded a little too well!

    I'm familiar with Trimpe's work, having read the Hulk in the 70's. I suppose seeming ignorance is more accurate.

    This may not be accurate, but I believe I heard at one point that his bad art was the result of being ghosted by his son.

    The sword could be set to stun, which was the default. I don't think he was trying to kill Reed. If he had it on kill, Reed would have probably been dead!

    Wow, I just read about the big Steve Rogers twist in the first issue of his new book. Very interesting.

    I'm sure the Steve Rogers twist will be retconned. Seriously, how is that a way to honor Cap during his 75th anniversary? I'm just glad I can save money by not buying it. I have no interest in seeing Marvel's leftist writers living out their ultimate fantasy with Captain America #1.

    Or it's only the beginning of a story that's sure to give us some surprises and twists along the way?
