THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!
"It looks rushed! I knew he couldn't do a monthly comic! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha"
"It's clearly not even JG at all, it's obviously Carlos Pacheco!"
"Marvel wins again! Even though Civil War #7 and World War Hulk #5 were sloppy messes, at least it was the same artist!"
It makes me really happy that this kind of hawk-watching wasn't around during the original Crisis on Infinite Earths. What am I talking about?
Let's have a look.
Crisis 1 & 2:
Inkers: Giordano and DeCarlo
Finishes and inks: Decarlo
Inks: Ordway and Giordano
Can you imagine 12 months of that kind of backlash because of that amount of creator shuffle? Because let's be honest, Crisis didn't hit its stride artistically until Ordway came on to the team. Perez would've had his nervous breakdown even earlier than he did in his career had these kinds of comments been tossed around so authoritatively.
You know why we didn't care? Because the story and the concept and the execution and the EXCITEMENT was overflowing.
Get a grip, people! Get out of the nitpicking, stop echoing talking points presented by competing editors and publishers, read it yourselves and enjoy it or don't enjoy it.
If you're going to base a comic on 4 preview pages on a computer screen you're in this for the wrong reasons.
