    There's tons of pictures previously dropped on this thread, that wouldn't be regarded as realistic body shapes, hence I find it odd you jumped on mine. No need to be so sensitive.

    The artwork from Hush is still highly regarded to this day. If you don't like it, then... okay.

    Why oh why does Galactus have a big capitol ‘G’ on his outfit? Was he that enamored with the English language?

    The steroid look drove me away from comics and the comic book shops that had big cut outs of Lobo or whatever in the window. It got so every male just about had tree trunk arms, thighs and necks, tiny head and cross hatching galore, usually a big leering, grinning or grimacing mouth. All the females had helium boobs and broken backs too and some kind of pouty tiny mouth. Bleh. Maybe the last new super-title I followed was Power Pack, I sure hope they didn't grow up to look monsterous in the Rob Leifield or whoever style. Total turnoff. I would feel frankly like an idiot being seen with one of those 'dark' usually casually violent comics in my hands. Make mine Owly! :cool:

    Because comic books were not studied for doctoral thesis' at that time... people did not ask where Huey, Dewey and that other guy came from in Donald Duck, or what kind of eggs they ate at Grandma Duck's farm. Except for probably some of the underground cartoonists. :laugh:

    Yeah, I too bailed out in the early 90's. Too many gimmick covers and crossovers. I dropped issues one by one until all that was left was Jeff Smith's "Bone". I can tell you exactly when I gave up on Marvel - I was enjoying Waid/Garney's run on "Captain America" when Marvel decided to do that "Heroes Reborn" crap and brought in the Image guys to revive the titles. So they rip Cap out of the capable hands of Waid and Garney and give it to Liefield, who drew Cap like he had a tumor in his chest of something. Anyway, that was the end for me. Glossy paper, mangia inspired stuff, quadruple D breasts....lame.

    I mean seriously....even I can draw perspective better than this.

    Agreed. "Heroes Reborn"[sic] indeed... :hurl::hurlleft:

    In my not-so-humble opinion, this is how Cap should look, period, end of story...

    When I was seven and eight years old Sky Masters was my favorite comic strip.

    Unbelievable that is. No one who draws like that should be working in the industry.

    Fans of Pink Floyd’s Saucerful of Secrets should be able to recognize this frame from Dr. Strange.

    Not a huge comic fan but I had the original Star Wars comic book...always found this killing of Obi-Wan kind of ridiculous looking

    In fairness to artist Howard Chaykin, he had to draw that without seeing the movie, and with only the script and a few production stills to go on. He had no idea how it was going to be depicted visually in the film.

    It's just a coincidence. It doesn't stand for Galactus, it's just his family crest. Like Superman's. cough.
