This should have been an Uncanny variant though versus being wasted on Ghost Rider, which I am
not going to buy. 😂

OMG. This is amazing. I have been so incredibly busy (busy time of year) that I haven't much visited or posted in eons but I am so excited by the throwbacks to the OUTBACK TEAM! Aaaa!

Love,

P.S. Hi Rahsaan!

Loving Phillip Tan's style lately. He's definitely improved. I'd love to see him do some interior work.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

CmX, me too! I feel like his work is definitely inspired by Silvestri with some traces of Lee at times. Also, these are my favorite looks for Storm, Rogue and Wolvie. Specifically, how those three dressed when first arriving in the Outback. Storm with the punk outfit and hair grown out, Rogue in her green and black leotard outfit with big hair and Wolvie in tan and brown. I’d be okay of they all got updated versions of those looks.

CmX said...

Agree. I definitely see some old school Lee style in there which is great.. not even Lee can draw.. Lee anymore LOL

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

True. No shade.

With mainstream success, Lee is now lazy in his pencils. His best work was when he was young, hungry and a guest artist that appeared in Classic X-Men side stories and a guest penciler on Uncanny.

CmX said...

Agreed. Plus, think about it.. he was young and motivated af and all his time was dedicated to drawing the X-Men. Now, he's pretty much a "suit" and probably doesn't draw daily like most artist. His style is definitely lackluster and hardly dynamic/fluid when he draws action scenes/poses.

I think artists like David Finch, Olivier Coipel, Jimmy Chueng, surpass 2018-Jim Lee in style and quality.

I like this cover, but I am kinda sad that they didn't use Psylocke's telepathic Butterfly effect.

Jim Lee is better now than he was in the 90's. His ability hasn't diminished in the least. As most of us know, dude just doesn't have the same amount of time to commit to his drawings given his current responsibilities at DC. Plus marriage and nine kids. Nine! lol.

If you haven't seen one, you should check out one of his streams on Twitch, or search Youtube for past drawings and streams that are no longer on Twitch.

Honestly, and this shouldn't be surprising, he seems to draw far better when he is drawing whatever he wants in the streams.

To me, Lee is not up to his usual standards today. I've also admittedly have never been the greatest Jim Lee Fanboy. Too me he is HIGHLY overrated, and there are many more artists out there that surpass Lee.

You ever notice how when people comment about Lee's Skills it's usually related to the X-men and not the books from Image comics.
I do have issues with this page. Like none of them has necks, and I have no idea, what's going on with Psylocke arm

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

It’s a wing now, silly.

Vigmed said...

Art is 100% subjective.

Easy example is that you THINK that is Psylocke on the cover when really it is Deathbird. The wings are a dead giveaway.

Dead!!! 💀
