I wanted to make this blog only for the interest of being objective. I'm going to challenge myself, and everyone on the vine to say something good about an artist or writer who's work you don't like.

I'm going to start it of by saying that Rob Liefeld, while he isn't my favorite artist, is excelent at layouts and storytelling

Frank Miller knows how to breath. :P 
 
But seriously he wrote the Dark Knight Returns so he's got that.

Warren Ellis has probably written some good stuff, I just haven't read it.

I'm sorry but Freakangels is a dull, awful comic with cardboard cutouts for characters. And it's all I've read from Ellis. *Shrug*

You should read Transmetropolitan. Ellis wrote that and it's pure unfiltered gold.

- Greg Pak must pleasure himself at night while looking at a picture of Hulk and Amadeus Cho,

- I have never seen a writer so biased in his work, or went so far out of his way to make every other character look bad in comparison.

Rob Liefeld isn't as nice as everyone says, he is an ass. Oh, right I'm supposed to say something nice...the stuff Liefeld swipes from is good.

I can draw better than Skottie Young, and I can trace better than Greg Land.

- Matt Fraction has gone on record to say he likes to punch people in the balls. Actually he has said that more than once. To me, there is something respectable about a man who feels secure enough to admit he would attack someone randomly in their most sacred of places. He's like the Johnny Cage of comic writers. 
 
- When I finish with any comic that Greg Land drew, I can give them to the homeless people outside my building and they will thank me for the softcore porn. Nothing makes a hobo happier than softcore porn. Well, Tofurkey sandwiches sure, they come close as far as the Hobo Scale of Happiness Index, but at least with the softcore porn they can collect it up like newspaper and use that as insulation to keep warm at night.

Bendis was really good at Ultimate Spider-Man last time I checked. You know, that book that has nothing to do with mainstream continuity? The book that has absolutely nothing to do with characters like Sentry and Ares and all those characters that met their unfair demise in a certain book that has been tainted for a really REALLY long time? Yeah. He's so much better at stuff that doesn't rely on an established continuity.

Loeb wrote the color books and Hush. They were great.

Frank Quitely is...

Hmm..................................

..............................................Alright, I got nothing for him...

Greg Land is amazing at using a lightbox and he picks some pretty women for uh... reference.

#31 Edited by sinful (149 posts) - - Show Bio

Greg Land is very original and inspires anyone that they can be a comic Book artist and not worry about being sued.

Todd McFarlane knows how to use Text Boxes for repeated thoughts and feelings in Spawn very well , because people tend to forget that Spawn is in pain, is angry and wants Wanda so badly. Thanks to him we will never forget as he puts that information in every issue.

Howard Chaykin clearly knows the market wants both Male and Female characters to look like each other, because you know discrimination sucks. Us humans are not that different at all. We are all the same. Especially our Jaw line.

Rob Liefeld is good at drawing, literally that is, Spineless women. Because we all know that's an artistic metaphor for women being cowards.

Joe Quesada doesn't have a forehead that I want to punch so badly and understands continuity doesn't matter. Comics are all fun and not for realz!.

Liefled is still getting work. Good for him... bad for us :(

Mark Millar can be nice sometimes when he isn't a douchebag most of the time.

Frank Miller used to be good before he went cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

Jeph Loeb sometimes needs a big hug over his son's death.
