my god people your pessimism is so annoying , please see one page of it..!!! before everyone judges this whole book...
The great thing about comic book artists is that if you know their previous work, you know what to expect from their new projects. I case of Land, well, if you saw his run on Uncanny and some ultimate projects he worked on, you can probably photoshop together the first few issues, you just have to change Emma's hair to red , shorter and give her freckles and you got Pepper. Take away Cyke's visor, give him a goatee and you got Tony. Should I continue? Sorry or the pessimism, which in this case is more like experience.
ha ha ha Your examples are great , but you can do that with sooo many artists its insane !! like I'm not saying Land is by any means my favorite , but I am not going to judge a book before seeing it. It makes no sense to me to bash this book yet.
I'm not judging the book (with which I'll probably have a love-hate relationship based on the creative team, but that's still in the future), I'm just expressing my negative opinion about a certain artist's artistic choices (what a fancy way to say: I don't like Land's work. At all.). He's constantly recycling, photocopying, tracing and (worst of all) swiping. All of this result's in images that some might call photo like, but in my opinion the characters look like they've been cut out of other pictures and put on a different background. And once you start tracing from porn, there's no way back...
Yes, a lot of other artists draw characters in a way that they're barely distinguishable form other characters. The only way to tell the difference between Dr.Strange and Reed Richards in Romita Jr.'s work (aside from the costume obviously) it that Strange has a goatee. There are plenty more examples of this with other artists too, but in case of Romita Jr. (yes, I know I'm playing the devil's advocate, I'm well aware how many people are against his art style) he still has a very distinctive, unique art style and the characters he draws are able to have more than 3 facial expressions and look like they are actually inhabit the same space. The same goes for Dillon. I'm not particularly fond of his style (the man should never be allowed to draw 'traditional' cape and tights super hero comics), but it goes well with stories like thhe ones Ennis is writing. I don't get any of that from Land.
Long story short, I'm not bashing the book, I just really don't like the artist, it could've been someone much better.
