The Stone Age of Comic Books

  Image by prozac1

Uggh!! I hate having to look at the disproportionate, hacked out crap in the samples of bad comic book artwork that I had to put on this blog site just to make a point! It's nauseating, ugly, wretched I-don't-give-a-damnism! Reminds me of all that filth that spewed out of Marvel Comics in the mid to late 1980's and into the 90's. This "infection" spread to DC comics and then to save itself from a sea of crap(!) the big companies found their false idol in painted (i.e. 'realistic') comic book art. They'll do anything -ANYTHING other than letting the people who were born to draw realistic comic books by heart (without looking at photographic reference) do it in mass like it was during the golden and silver ages of comic books. What age of comic books are we in now? We're still in the stone age, what else? Slowly but surely more and more realistic artist are working in comic books again after having been kept outside in the cold by the rank and file amateurs and hacks who, along with their partners in crime, the EDITORS, managed to take comic books to the virtual bottom of the visual storytelling industry.
