I normally like Campbell's cheesecake, but that Pose looks ungodly painful, easy pass for me.

@Taz, it’s solely about the T&A with J. Scott.

Yeah that anatomy is really off here haha Classic 90s Psylocke.. ass and face in the same shot haha

Stephen W said...

ugh ass/distorted spine pose ...pass...reminds me #1 reason I didn't like how Asian Betts was drawn most of the time

That's why in the 90s no one did anything with her. She was just a shallow "cool" character, there's not much to do there.

So glad those dark days are past Betsy.

Speaking of the 90s, have y’all seen these?

"Yeah that anatomy is really off here"

Well, that's Campbell's style. I kinda like it (but maybe not for a full run, just a cover here and there).

What really surprised me is that Storm is in neither of his covers, despite easily being the most famous X-Woman and one of the three main X-Men (tied with Wolverine and Cyclops).

As for the preview for X-Force #1... wow, that looks bad. Maybe (and hopefully) it will look better after colored. Plus, I still don't get why Hope isn't part of this book (her being a minor couldn't be the reason, as these people have teamed up with TEEN JEAN in Extermination...).

@FSaker, I dig X-Force’s new uniforms, but I loathe cartoonish artwork in serious comics.

CmX said...

FSaker his anatomy isnt always off I love his style but it's really bad here.

FSaker said...

I like cartoonish artwork, but this one is bad. But the X-Force uniforms are nice, I agree.

As for Campbell, his art usually shows slim figures with long legs (for both women and men). This cover doesn't bother me; Betsy's posture looks painful to replicate, but other than that she's fine to me (Warren is also there, but who cares about him, right?).

But I'm really bothered that he didn't include STORM in one of these covers. I'd replace either Xavier or Beast with her.

I must be the only person that likes Warren, haha!

Also, may be the only one, but I really like this cover art. It is super clean and we don't get that a lot with X covers.

Honestly speaking, her pose doesn't look out of whack. I think what is throwing it off to the viewer is how the cover looks to be low and a little behind her as she moves away. The cover is turned, or tilted, to give it a more in action appearance. The lighting, while amazingly colored, also helps to distort the image some, but even that looks to be on point.

To me, her spine really, truly, does not look broken or inhumanely bent. Not from my perspective, anyway.

I am surprised Storm isn't on one of the covers.
