Twice in a year? Geez you guys, trying to make me a regular or something?

Just a little FYI. It’s not a critique of an apple to say it doesn’t look enough like an orange. What I mean by that is saying a picture with a cartoony art style has wrong anatomical proportions is akin to saying an apple isn’t orange enough for an orange. The “new” style is more cartoonish, and as much as I liked the more solid art I have a large affinity for cartoons as well. I’ve always been a fan of an artist named Jon Gray and his style is 90’s era Warner Bros. level cartoony.

What I’m trying to say, without reverting to my forum guard dog voice from days of yore, is that this is the style the comic is now. Accept that and move on. You don’t see people saying the proportions are off on Bruce Timm’s character designs and harping on him to make Batman with thinner shoulders. Yes the style switched, but the only end harping on it can have is the artist getting frustrated and giving up.

I know more than likely the commenters I’m talking about will either ignore this or write call me sophmoric names in no less than three pages but I felt the need to express to Taeshi that there ARE people that like cartoony comics.

Personally? I think the cartoonier look is a interesting parallel to the mounds of faux teen drama that goes on in this crazy comic. I like it and I guess I just wanted to make sure that voice got heard over the vocal minority.

Okay, I’m going back to lurking and hope to see an awesome BCB booth at Connecticon. :D
