Oh, I don't mind Keith's artwork that much. Even in Female War. It has it's own charm. From what I've seen it looks to me he's just not the most popular of artists who worked on Alien EU. Tristan Jones is certainly more popular with majority of fans
Yeah, Jones is by far the best Aliens artist in recent memory, and one of the best overall. I just wish he got to work on stories with a better author (and, more importanly, an author that isn't a piece of shit person). Jones' excellent art deserved better than that. It pains me that Marvel is already screwing Tristan over right off the bat like this because he has so much more that he can bring to this franchise they they are both squandering and stepping all over with this terrible move. Like, his piece in the 40th Anniversary art book was phenomenal – easily one of the best in the book.
I wasn't overly fond of Keith's work in Earth War
(but then, I didn't like the writing there, or in the two preceding installments, much either). I loved his work in Inhuman Condition
, however, and find that to be one of the best Aliens comics through and through.
