Why does JRJR fail on everything except for Spidey?
he's great at drawing the big impacts and action, which are real important for comics, and he actually draws backgrounds which should go without saying, but in today's age of the increasing webcomic-y-ness of print comics, it's still good to see
he just flubs on faces and character design
Some stuff is passable but some looks like a first grader's crayon art.
i really dislike Supe's new outfit. i thought i'd get used to it by now, but i still find it too militaristic and over designed.
Well, he's not wearing it anymore.
>perspective so fucked you literally can't tell if Giant Man is using his powers or not
This has to be a first
>Well, we didn't want to reinvent the wheel here. Superman is the most iconic character in history. His costume i bold. Simple. Like the man himself, he has nothing to prove. He's a hero. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. He's Superman.
Where did it all go wrong with DC? Is this WB's fault?
He clearly just doesn't give a shit anymore. All these good looking shots this guy is posting is before he learned he can release anything at DC/Marvel and it will sell on name alone.
That still doesn't mean he doesn't look like fucking Superboy.
Yeah, so dark and edgy
It's not the worst comic in that style I've seen.
He still is a decent fight artist, better than most in the industry (who basically can draw a few pinups over a background) but his figures have gotten so shit and his paneling and scene composition are lazy as fuck now.
It's probably your fault for caring about a costume more than how Superman acts in the comic. Although, I will concede to you, it is tough to know how he acts since you don't read the book.
Yeah it's basically Morrison Action suit sans cape and with the Fleischer S-symbol and a buzzcut.
I was more fine with that than I ever was with the armor or the Injustice costumes.
I love how casuals think Miller hates Superman because Batman beat him for few seconds while Superman was about as weak as he can get in a comic without being outright depowered. On top of that the fact that he's clearly shown to be a broken man in TDKR just as Bruce is (on top of the parents shit, I mean) because of traumatic events in their Superhero careers, and all he needed was 90 seconds of punching (something he's very used to and not really bothered by) to get the kick in the pants to be a real hero again.
DK2 also shows that Miller clearly likes Superman, but these people either haven't read it or hate it because "The figures are not house style so the art is unreadable over all"
I really like the Injustice Costume actually, I think it's a great AU Superman Suit and a great idea for a suit without trunks that still captures a superheroic feel.
I do like this design better though
I really like it overall but I still don't think the buzzcut suits him.
I don't get why people think it's an edgy redesign.
Superman costumes that are just casual pants, shirt and maybe cape I prefer to the regular costume and think work better with the character, symbolically speaking
>post-BND Romita on Spider-Man
I prefer pre-BND.
I know the original was better, but Romita Jr. did a good job.
I feel they're a bit off when he can fly. Jeans and a T-Shirt just don't seem like they could withstand Supersonic travel, and I feel like Kryptonian made ones are just a bit to silly.
I don't hate on him but he's too over the top.
I don't know, it's like his plot points are supposed to be powerful but come across as too simple and A-to-B sometimes.
He sure can draw and write a great sequence, though.
DKR has one of my all time favorite Superman moments too. When he winks at Carrie during Bruce's funeral.
You're expecting people to look past the surface or worse understand anything from the comic that's not the fight pages they saw on the internet.
Yeah, the comic is basically it's own beast at this point.
To be honest, if it all looked like the arm and leg areas in game, where it's textured but skin-tight, it'd work, but for some reason they decided to have the torso area have all this armour.
The blue is also not nearly vivid enough.
For someone who 'hates' Superman, I swear that in DKR Miller seems intent on making him more likeable than Batman. He might be a government stooge, but it's made clear that he's still a good person, while with Bruce you really don't get that sense.
As far back as the 90's Miller's always wanted to get around to doing a Superman story. For the purposes of Dark Knight, Superman had to be a foe. In fact if you look at the early draft of the plot, Superman came off a lot better than in the final.
>he's too over the top.
I think this is what I love about him (at least recently). Sin City is Miller making cool comics by mashing noir cliches together and drawing balls to the wall cool shit. ASBAR is an absurd extension of his Batman who is hilariously insane. Holy Terror even has it's moments that I found enjoyable even if most of it was trash.
His older stuff is a lot more subtle. Ronin and his Daredevil are both great and don't rely on the same level of insanity that his modern books feature
I think that ASBAR has to be read as a comedy. I'm convinced that's what he was writing it as.
You also have to remember that anything post 9/11 is incredibly influenced by the fact that Miller saw it (I think, don't quote me on that) and was basically driven over the edge by it.
>using his millions of dollars and technology
This isn't Tony Stark prancing around in his robo suit with 0 effort.
This is a man pushing his mind and body to its limits.
DKR Batman relies more on his body than any of his gadgets.
See, theres the problem with Dobson. He's not a completely awful artist. He can consistenly draw his characters in a variety of situations without a dip in quality.
His problem is that his character designs are dog shite and his art has the potential to be improved immensely but he refuses to accept criticism. Like obviously some criticism is just people being pricks, its the internet after all, but he treats everyone, including people who mean well who are just giving honest opinions or advice like they are the school bully making fun of his nerd drawings before making sexist comments at the girl the fancies who obviously wouldn't be with that supid jock if only she realised how smart and feminist Dobson is.
Fuck even B^Uckley has taken criticism on board.
The true crime of Dobson is that there is some small degree of talent there that he repeatedly refuses to nurture.
