    Is R.M. Guera a good artist? I’ve heard the name but have never read anything that had his art.

    • Conor Kilpatrick Conor Kilpatrick (@cskilpatrick) says:

      He was the artist on SCALPED. One of the best in the business.

    • jasonhart jasonhart says:

      His style is pretty gritty, which should work well here. To elaborate on Conor’s comment though, his visual storytelling (panel layouts, action scenes, character acting, etc.) is very easily some of the best in modern comics.

    • I’m surprised to hear that this artist is so highly regarded, considering the preview looked pretty mediocre.

    • jasonhart jasonhart says:

      Might be. A lot of times licensed properties are pretty strict in their creative control & a book can suffer forthat. With a Tarantino property, that does seem like it should be the case, but who knows…

      As someone stated below, to see Guera’s work at its best, check out his & Jason Aaron’s “Scalped.”

    I’m looking forward to this. From what I hear, it will be slightly different than movie since Tarantino’s movies tend to be different than how his script started. I’m excited to see that an awesome artist is doing it too.

    Does this have more pages or why is it 4,99$?

  4. Urthona Urthona says:

    Trade waiting. Anyone even curious about Guera should pick up a Scalped tpb…my favorite comic book of the last decade.

    Is this ongoing or just a mini?

    Wasn’t going to pick this up because I didn’t want to be spoiled before the movie, but there was one more copy in my LCS, so I picked it up for the hell of it. Best first issue of 2012! (Saga was mine originally) The page count and content fills this book. It took me about 30 minutes to read. R.M. Guera’s art is phenomenal and he uses around 6-8 highly detailed panels per page. I was a little nervous about QuentinTarantino’s screenplay being put in comic form, but now I wish they’d do GNs for all his films because of how well this translated. And they intentionally didn’t use actor references when drawing the characters. This book stands on it own! 5 Stars, POTW.

  7. I bought this and read it after seeing the movie, and I thought it was pretty bad. Aside from the art being generic and mediocre, the movie’s script doesn’t work very well in comic form (especially the humor, which is completely lost.) I bet this only got such high ratings from people because they were reading it before seeing the movie.

    Oh, also, it hardly has anything that isn’t in the movie, at least in this first issue. A few extra lines of dialogue here and there. Actually, in a few cases the extra dialogue pretty much ruins scenes that were much better in their revised form in the movie (the scene in which Django picks out his clothes, for instance.)
