I’m going to have to give Bendis the benefit of the doubt on this Heroic Age story, because so far it is ringing hollow.

After years of hyper “realism”, we now are falling back to the age of three-color heroes.

So let me put my cynicism aside for a few months and see if Bendis can dazzle once once again…

goddd I hate when an artist draws the same face on almost every character. Look at Bucky-Cap and Thor’s, hell and even Iron Man’s faces, they’re exactly the same! Is it THAT hard to draw sifferent lips or noses?? Steve Dillon’s even worse, I had the same problem with him. Made Wolverine a skinny Preacher extra with sideburns and a cowlick… *barf* Even Dillon’s women had the same-drawn mouth.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
