"No word on what will happen to the title once he leaves or who will replace him (unless the title is just canceled)"

Well, I'd doubt it's getting cancelled if it's getting this advertising treatment. We'll probably be getting a new creative team, and possibly some different cast members after this arc.

I don't know--if they were going to do that, wouldn't they have done it now, with the Schism shake-up?

So, still doing silhouettes? Man, I was hoping that they'd stop that. Just show us who is on the damn team.

Rogue's face and bosom! Dear god, that's bad.

Possibly the worst I've ever seen. And I'm currently working through the nineties.

Good. His Mary Sue Rogue got really boring thirty issues ago.

Oh ouch - *ignore the announcment* oh holy bejesus - that art.

What is this I don't even....gah

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-08-16 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
I think it's cute

And you are allowed to think that. I'm not going to judge you.

The art style isn't BAD bad - just I'm not too fond of the backbreaking proportions they've given Rogue, and the manga style I always find jarring on a main stream US book. To me she looks like shes 15 in that picture. Just my weird art snobbery.

Eh. My first reaction to it was, 'what's wrong with your faaaace?'

Then, 'what's wrong with the rest of you? Jeez!'

I can deal with the one style or the other. This is just kind of mixing both styles of art and it doesn't seem to work well.

Her boobs are larger than her head.

Or floating . . .

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-08-16 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
I didn't even notice them in that picture

[personal profile] aaron_bourque 2011-08-17 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
They're not to everyone's taste, sure, but they're fairly obvious once you get past the face.

Which is hard to do, because that faaaaaaace.

What is wrong with that faaaaaaace.

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-08-17 02:07 am (UTC)(link)
It's round and pouty.

Honestly between her arm, her scarf and the X-men logo I don't think her boob is very noticable in that pic.

[personal profile] aaron_bourque 2011-08-17 07:22 am (UTC)(link)
That's not just round and pouty. Try to trace the shape of her head, ignoring her hair. Her head would be like the shape almost of a flattened beer can. Now try to find her neck.

. . . dear god, that anatomy is terrible.

Less Anna Paquin, more Anna Kendrick.

My sad is so sad it has a sad. I hope like hell that we don't lose Mike Carey in the X-books for good. He is far and away the best writer we've seen in years.
angelophile: (Rogue - Wha?)

He's talking about it on Facebook:

I love the X-Men. And it's a voluntary separation, not a divorce... :)

It’s not the end of me on the X-Men - at least, I hope it isn’t. It’s me taking a break from the monthly book, and taking stock of where I am on a bunch of other things.


So, some positive.

Honestly, I'm disappointed that it was Matt Fraction who seemed to be the golden boy on the X-men post-Messiah Complex as Carey was the one X-writer who I really rated, and still do. Disappointed again that he's stepping back. Legacy was my only remaining core X-title.

Well he also occasionally does novels as well, so it might be that too (Along with Unwritten).

Hmm. Carey in his X-Men sandbox book, or more Felix Castor novels...

I'm so very conflicted right now!

Here's hoping he comes back soonish in a position to give more direction to the franchise as a whole.

There goes my interest in the core X-books.

Bleeding cool noticed something blue and gold about those promos.

Carey's run was really great.

This Regensis just sounds horrible to me. They are getting rid of Keiron (On Gen. Hope), Carey, all my favorite x-writers. And what do we get instead? Lots of X-Men teams! These books have gotten SO BLOATED.

Also that is so Gambit on the left.

As long as he doesn't decide to crank up the Gambit/Rogue/Magneto triangle in his last few issues, we'll part with no ill feelings.

Oh wow.

[personal profile] darkm1993 2011-08-17 01:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Now, i'm not a fan of the X-men (only X book i read is Uncanny X Force) but that art (particularly Rogues face) looks atrocious.

The sad thing is, combining anime-ish style with american-ish comic styles i know can be done well. I've seen it be done before with other comics. Needless to say, this isn't how you do it.

By the way, nice to meet you all. =P

This is the same comic that started with Chris Claremont and Jim Lee. The same comic ruled by the iron hand of Fabian Nicieza. The same comic taken to great heights by Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely and the gang. The home of the "Jgg." The owner of no fewer than three official titles, but one official numbering. They really should not restart it to Number One.
