Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m worried about the art.  I like Crain’s stuff, but it definately takes on the rush’d look when he does too many issues in a row, and gets really muddy and out of focus.  As always though, his covers are amazing.

    Last issue treaded water a little bit.  I wouldnt’ be surprised if Kyle and Yost had to stretch this arc out a little bit so all the books could get lined up for Second Coming.

  2. I LOVE Kyle&Yost’s writing so much that I don’t mind Crain’s art, but I can’t wait for Second Coming with the return of Choi&Oback.

  3. I really like Crain. I would hate it if even a handful of my comics were all drawn by him, but as not much else looks like it I generally find it very refreshing and beautiful. The darkness matches the tone of this book well, especially this Necrosha event. Yes, it can be difficult to follow sometimes and I do think Necrosha is straining him a bit, but I don’t mind that extra bit of work. It’s like a nightmare come to life in comic form.

  4. They way he draws hair, makes me crazy!

  5. maybe he could have someone else color his work, that’d probably help.

  6. he’s essentially painting, digitally, using color as he constructs the images i imagine… doing his work black and white first and then having it colored would be a little redundant. i agree that tonally his work fits the story but i can’t wait for Choi and Oback to come back!

  7. So….this is still going on? Ah ok. Still being drawn with mud? Ah ok.

  8. @whitespyder9- yeah, that occurred to me after I made my post.  still, I just wish there were some different choices made in the colors.

  9. @abirdseyeview – do you like any of his stuff?

    I’m in full agreement with you on the colors, and I think Crain’s panels are borderline unintelligible sometimes.  But when he’s on (not rushed I guess), I’m a big fan.  For example, his portion of the Necrosha one-shot was pretty stunning.

  10. I really liked Ghost Rider- Road to Damnation.  I think the number of characters, especially in action scenes, gets the best of him.  he definitely adds a spooky feel to his stories though.

  11. Agreed, too much going on in one panel doesn’t suit his talents – especially in smallish panels. 

    His stuff down the stretch of Messiah War was hideous, and I’m afraid that’s where this is heading.

  12. Crain really hurt this book for me. Its gonna be hard reading the next 2 issues, but I’m happy this is his last arc.

  13. I actually liked the story a lot, but this was hands down the worst art Crain has ever put out, and I have a feeling it’s just going to get worse.  Unfortunately, the x-books don’t believe in delays

  14. I’ve supported and enjoyed this book from the beginning, despite thinking it would never work, but this… this was the worst thing I’ve read in months, artwise. I have NO idea what happened in this book – couldn’t even tell who the X-Force team regulars were. If Josh needs a counterpoint for a future storytelling segment on the video podcast, I’d like to nominate this entire issue.
