Previews of the next issue, which unfortunately has Javier Pulido replace David Aja as artist.


I'm fairly disappointed, really. I really like Aja's artwork. Its popping, that's the only way to describe it. The new artwork, however, looks off. The faces don't look right, Clint looks like a very angry Tintin with the eyebrows of Hetalia's England.

This may be my Replacement Scrappy reaction, but Aja's artwork was able to convey a lot of the fun to the series. One of the big reasons I'm going to the Thought Bubble Comic Con was because Aja's attending. Thankfully, its only for two issues.

Still, I'm really enjoying this series so far, just hoping that Mockingbird will make an appearance.

Perhaps because you're seeing the cached version of the images stored on your computer.

It's generally preferred to post images from your own host, rather than hotlinking.

I would suggest that rather than hotlinking four pages, you post one from your own host and include a link to the actual preview site proper, it's considerate to the other site if nothing else.

The site is currently down, so even the link isn't working. Ah well, gives me something to come back later to. :D

Well it's not quite as good as Aja, but it's still pretty nice, and is pretty consistent with the series look so far, much in the same way Daredevil has been. I much prefer that they use someone like this as opposed to bringing in some generic Jim Lee ripoff.
Pulido also did my favorite arc on the recently wrapped Shade series, so I'm fond of his artwork in general.

Looks like this is the first part of a multipart story, I hope this isn't a sign of the direction the series will be taking in the future because I've been loving the single issue format.

I don't think that the replacement is too jarring, either. I think that they both take something from Batman: Year One/Daredevil: Born Again-era David Mazzucchelli.

Also, Clint totally deserves to be pickpocketed for stealing that lady's cab.

Hmm, I don't actually like the look of the art, but I think it tells the story in a way similar to Aja's.

It's a shame that Aja didn't stay on longer. It's this a permanent replacement? I know David Aja has some of his own projects that he'll be overseeing in the near future.

That said, I have to agree that the change isn't that jarring. It's like when Cameron Stewart took over for Darwyn Cooke on Catwoman: was it different? Sure. Was it bad? Absolutely not.

I actually preferred Stewart to Cooke on Catwoman. I love Cooke's style, but Stewart was fantastic.

But.. Yeah. It's a bit of an unfortunate replacement given Marvel really sold this as like, the Iron Fist reunion, but I think it's a really weird day when an artist like Pulido is considered a 'replacement scrappy'.

I don't like the way he draws faces (especially Clint's)... I really think there are a few too many Mike Allred wannabe's out there. And the problem is very few of them have Allred's innate sense of anatomy, or his whimsy.

Personally I'd much rather have a Mike Allred ripoff than a Jim Lee ripoff or something. Bad pop art appeals to me much more than bad realism.

You've got me there. Hey, remember in the nineties when EVERYONE was a Jim Lee ripoff? Oh, man those were some goooood times, bro... Good times...

On a related note, I am highly entertained by the cover art for issue 2, showing the correct arm and body line for Archery.
This being something that professional Archers highly criticised Jeremy Renner over in articles such as: http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2012/03/avengers-hawkeye-archery/

It's not bad art, but I agree with those liking Aja's better. His art was a big draw for me to get into this series in the first place. Good to hear this change won't be permanent.

Thought I was looking at John Constantine for a second there. It's not that I don't like the art, but I don't like Clint's face. So...
