You say what I can only think. I mean, I'm spoiled--to me Colan is the standard in comics for this guy. But I'm so tired of this lazy open outliney look where the colors don't so much interact with the art as simply use it to contain them. And all of it is too damn bright for this subject.
I recall Bissette & Totleben's dense, at times Finlay-like style was Totleben's reaction to what he called a "coloring-book style," with a lack of mood and personality, that he felt dominated in comics at the time, and so with this. It's lazy. Spot your blacks like a man, I say! Take authoritah over your art and don't leave everything to the colorist and their paint bucket.
