 So I spotted these reference images on Joe's blog and Newsarama released the finish piece today.

If you've noticed that everyone seems to have the same fugly face it's because they've all become Joe Quesada.

First there is Cap and Thor. He didn't post his reference pic for the Sentry because I suspect it was taken whilst stalking Bendis for surprise butt sex.

Arms of play-doh.

Here is Iron Man and Norman.

You go, Joey, coco

Unlike Land, and Larroca, at least Joe Quesada can draw. I remember his pencils on Daredevil (either for covers or a short stint) and bully for him for actually looking in the mirror and making poses instead of tracing over stock poses.

There are many things to get on Joey Q for, but this ain't one of 'em.

Larocca can draw. Remember his X-Men or X-Treme X-Men work? Hell even his Fantastic Four work.

Heh, that's all the past, now. You're only as good as your last bit of work, and Larroca's stuff has been crap for a very long time.

Wouldn't know, as far as I'm concerned he hasn't worked since Milligans run, really.

Except that Alex Ross, who uses this same technique, at least bothers to use models other than himself for the poses and the facial expressions, which is an important thing to do if you're an artist who, like Quesada, suffers from a chronic case of SameFace in his art. As it stands, it's really hard not to see this and come to the conclusion that Quesada has now LITERALLY turned the entire Marvel Universe into a self-insert fanfic.
