NUMQUAM OBLIVISCEMUR MICHAELIS CRICHTONIS
Cimmerian Dragon wrote:^ I'll play for the other team; I like the art. it has a retro, Johnny Quest or pulp-magazine vibe that I think works well with Godzilla. No, I wouldn't want to see an entire series done in this style, but a one-issue thing? Sure, I can get behind that.

And a fanboy nitpick:
Figuring out how to draw a giant old lady with thyroid problems and the face of a dog mixed with a cat and make it look like Godzilla was a mesmerizing challenge.

Arbok wrote:Man, people are shredding the art... I thought it did a good job with the human characters, but faltered on the monsters. It's very stylized, that much is for sure.

Bobby Curnow made it clear that Legends is a chance to create comics that represent the wide spectrum of art and creativity that are present in the comics world today. And that is what we get here, a comic with a distinctly "indie" feel to it.
Those who are judging Haspiels work as shoddy crap out of hand are welcome to their opinion ("...everyone has one", as they say), but dismissing his work without any qualification or recognition of the basic talent on display betrays a mypoic viewpoint and perhaps a bit of immaturity. Clearly, Haspiel's stylized work will not appeal to all, but as an Emmy Award winner and Eisner Award nominee, his skill is recognized not only in the comic creators community, but also across the wider entertainment industry.
Not liking Haspiel's art style is fine--perfectly reasonable and understandable. But calling his work crap is ridiculous.
