"There is no longer a monolithic Marvel. If you’re not all that into X-Force, or the way X-Force is drawn, that’s not really going to have that much of an effect on whether you like any of the other dozen X-Men titles coming out. The philosophy seems to be to publish enough books, vary them very liberally, staff them with idiosyncratic creators with distinctive visions, and chances are a reader will find several different titles that appeal to them."
ComicsAlliance seems weirdly negative about Marvel’s new artistic diversity, but they do a great description of it regardless. (via copperbadge)
Somebody seems to miss the factory comic aesthetic of his/her youth’s Marvel. I liked the late 70ies/early 80ies Marvel stuff, but with the exception of some aftershocks of early 70ies Steranko/Engelhardt/etc, the comics were pretty similar. Byrne/Perez ruled the aesthetics and Claremont the plot convolution.
