Fight scenes seem all right, but all the humor that is written in the probably quite good script falls flat on it's face. I mean, (spoiler) Kurt rides off on an undead horse, and spends the rest of the book with Deadpool's chatty head under his arm, and along the way is glomped by a big burly guy. In a good artist's hands, that would have been hilarious... They really need a better artist. If you can visualize a better way to handle the script as a reader, there is something seriously wrong.
I agree and yet, I don't.
Let me first say you're dead on with the writing, Remender has captured classy/sassy comedic timing for Darkholme while giving him some layering (similar to that of an onion rather than something sweeter such as, y'know -- parfait or something.). However; I think the artwork is perfect for the current arc the problem is the COLORS.
For me, the belending of the colors, on some panels (not all) really hurts my eyes. It reminds me of the problem I had with Bacchalo's artwork in W&tXM. His details (similar to the UXF artist's details) are so intricate, and he includes so much going on in one scene, that the specs of shading and lighting, etc... these things get blotchy and the colors (which seem bright and appropriate) become the real source of eyesore (for me at least). I wish the colorist(s?) had better control, but other than that I like the way Darkholme's tail swooshes and is still prehensile. I like Deadpool's mask not being a spider-man skull mask and having a bit of a peaked top, like the mask in the original design, I like Logan's claws being just the right thickness and length that it makes SENSE they come out of his hand, between his knuckles, and I really appreciate Fantomex's eyes. You can't see the rest of his face, so the artist has to express all that confusion and fear and anger in the eyes and I (personally) think he nails it.
So far, I'm impressed with this comic. A smidge overwhelmed, but I also know NOTHING about where they are right now, other than Meggan and Brian (and apparently the whole Braddox Clan) are from there. Anyone know if that's the case for Ultimate Braddox Clan? (:offtopic I know, but just curious).
