"What has surprised me about writing Ozymandias is how much we actually DO NOT know about him, despite all the back-story he supposedly provided in the original series. I'm having great fun filling that in." - Len Wein

Jae Lee's Hellshock wasn't the huge hit that he may have hoped for - the four issue mini-series' conclusion was delayed and plot-wise it was a bit of a mess - however there was a fair bit of hype, and it was early Image so Lee probably made a decent amount of cash from the first issue alone.

He'd return after a few years with a Hellshock supposed regular series; it didn't last long but showed a distinct abandonment in art style of the touches that made him stand-out from the pack during his short X-Men projects; between Hellshock and Inhumans, it's all photorealistic, if not photo-traced.

Following his Jim Lee/Whilce Portacio/Bill Sienkiewicz (lite) style during his earliest Marvel stint, Jae Lee was snapped up by Image founder Jim Lee to illustrate an early WildCATS mini-series.

Soon after he launched a creator owned title, Hellshock, refining his art atyle in the process.

Hello! I am actually making a post for the first time since April 2013! (Huzzah!)

The moment many of us have been waiting for has finally happened within the pages of Batman/Superman #8. It took nearly three years for it to happen, but I suppose better late than never.

Putting aside the fact that this story is a continuation of Paul Levitz' 2.5-year-old meandering narrative (which in my opinion is the major flaw with this crossover), I actually enjoyed this issue on its own merits. I mostly loved it for the beautiful art from Jae Lee and the character moments we got between Bruce and Helena Wayne.

Best known nowadays for very dark, photorealistic artwork on books like Before Watchmen: Ozymandias and Marvel's Dark Tower books, his earliest comics work was of an altogether different style.

Seeing the makeshift Superman outfit from the new Action Comics #1 bugged me for a while. I couldn't really place it for ages, though I knew that I'd seen something similar elsewhere.

The other day, the thought came to me: The Sentry. Not the yellow and blue costumed version, or the Golden Age version, or the Fabio that appeared in New Avengers, but the one from Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee's original miniseries (avoid the second mini).

Of course, if you already know The Sentry's story, that takes a lot away from the reading experience.

The Sentry is the story of a hero that the world forgot about, coming back into existence. Many people think that he's mentally ill, until they too remember him.

Even though his story ended up very convoluted, and he was unusable in New Avengers (though I'm going to post his scenes with Emma Frost later on this week) and he was the big baddie in Siege and his memorial issue was awful, we'll always have this neat scene here.

Greetings True Believers!

Cross-overs are good, old-fashioned fun and the Transformers and G.I. Joe go together like peanut butter and jelly.

This Dreamwave Productions mini-series is my favorite of the numerous times the Joes and Robots have gotten together. It's WWII and this time it's Cobra/Decepticons vs. G.I. Joe/Autobots.

This mini rocks and I'm displaying my favorite bits, pages and panels.

Things to enjoy: Snake-Eyes and all the badassery that comes with him. The awesome bromance between Grimlock and Roadblock, Cobra Commander being his over-the-top self. And surprising amount of sexual innuendo between humans and alien robots.

"Morrison hates shades of gray. It's really that simple. You're either a hero or a villain in his book. And his villains tend to be either pure evil, pathetic manchilds/people that can't man up and deal with shit, or all of the above. There's very little room in his work for sympathetic bad guys or antagonists that actually kinda have a point."

Can anyone think of any "sympathetic bad guys or antagonists that actually kinda have a point" that Morrison has done?

A roundup of the X-Men news from C2E2 - not as much news as in some other places, but undoubtedly that's because of "Second Coming" still being only in the early stages.
