Disrespecting Tristan Jones, is disrespecting Aliens fans. We love this guy! Great artist!
Guy should have his own Alien series going.
Wow, haven't been here for months. Who's this Land dude, wtf? Marvel hired this jerk off? From his wikipedia page:
Land has been accused of going beyond the accepted bounds of photographic reference, lifting images from sources that include hardcore pornography, and copying them into his pages outright with minimal Photoshop alterations to make the work appear to be an original drawing, a reputation he developed from his work on Ultimate Fantastic Four and Ultimate Power. Land has agreed that he does employ photo reference to a large extent, and that he uses pornography as a source, but denies that the extent to which he does so is questionable. The A.V. Club included him in their 2009 list of "21 artists who changed mainstream comics (for better or worse)" for this reason.
Commenting on Land's work on Uncanny X-Men #510, Brian Cronin of CBR.com remarked that the issue "possibly has the most harmful art to a story that I’ve seen in a comic," saying that Land's limited supply of poses and use of the same models for multiple characters "results in terrible art and particularly terrible storytelling." He was also mocked for his limited use of facial expressions on the Thing.
Land has also been accused of directly swiping art from other comics artists, and is considered "notorious" for tracing his art from other sources to the point where some fans make a hobby of finding the original sources Land traced for his art.
Land's art for Marvel's Aliens Omnibus was pointed out by artist Tristan Jones as containing direct copies of various pieces of Jones' own Aliens artwork. Similarities were also found between elements of Land's cover and an Alien portrait by Andy Brase, a catalog photo of a sculpted Alien egg toy by NECA, and a screenshot from the Sega video game Aliens: Colonial Marines.[
Yeah thats terrible, fire this Land guy and get Tristan. What a disgrace, stealing from othe comic artists.
Looks like he forgot the inner jaw too.
HAhahahaha what did I say about marvel?! xD Shouldnt come as a surprise, afterall in their star wars comics a lot of the space designs are stolen from fans and traced/copied and the art is a let down after the first couple of comics:
This is just the start of things and you can guess how the stories will become. RIP Dark horse, this is one of many reasons Im sceptical about marvel doing aliens comics and will probably skip them and ignore them completely.
Note: Found out that their art they reuse for the collections and marvel releases wont give any money to the original artists or royalitys etc, Im so skipping marvel and sticking to getting my dark horse comics.
Wow, what a fkin embarassment. These morons basically kill off anything they buy...
Here's to the Marvel/Disney Stars Wars and Alien franchises:
Oh, that f**k is just f**king with us at this point
What's it? Being outraged fan never felt that good
Yea no sh!t lol
This a bad start for the alien marvel comics and marvel has a know history of letting stuff like this happening and I can tell worse stuff is coming
Ya think? After seeing this dumbasz dumbo shiet, i don't think I'll be going to the theaters to see Marvel or Disney movies even. To come out with the first issue in this fashion...Dumbo must be running things there.
Certainly Marvel deserves a chance to address this issue and take responsibility.They havent for years with star wars, their avengers stuff, conan etc where they have done the same, and nothing said about the artist gets royalitys etc.
Have not much hope for marvel suddenly changing from what they´ve done for 5+ years xD
I know ay, I'm sitting here reading for the first time what they've been doing to Star Wars for 5 years, and than I'm reading the sheep saying let's give them a chance. Lmfao. HHHHoooo wer funked now Binshop.
Btw, that was one ugly mfkin Alien on that cover.
