It makes me feel so fine..


You know, you can say whatever you want about Alex Ross, and I'm well aware people do, but I think this cover he did for X-Men #500 is completely awesome.

technically speaking, ross is an extremely good artist. i like his stuff but not as much as i used too. i think he's just saturated the market with his work and a lot of people are just tired of looking at it.

i also think the same people who rag on his work are the same people who hate on boris vallejo and julie bell's stuff. again, both are insanely talented artists technically but their stuff is so heavily referenced and "realistically" painted that it takes all the "life" out of the work making it look stiff and boring.

this piece is pretty damn sweet though because of the perspective. ross is damn good at perspective shots.

Alex Ross is the Joe Satriani of comicbookery. Technically prodigious, but totally uncool.

I like Ross. I won't buy stuff becuase of him anymore, but if he does something with a character I like, it's cool.
