DC To Titans Fans: Drop Dead
 
Quote:

The Titans slide brought questions about the change from artist Ian Churchill to Joe Benitez in the second issue. DiDio- “Unfortunately Ian hurt his hand, and is recovering, so Joe Benitez will take over the art for the foreseeable future.

Great, just great. Take one of the best properties DC has and treat it like dirt. With that announcement, I'm officially dropping Titans. I can take mediocre writing for a couple issues to see if a writer can find his or her legs, but I can't take insultingly bad "art." What a shame too. Titans could have been huge.

What are you talking about DC isn't treating the JSA like dirt :p

I think you might be overreacting just a little.

I am fan of Joe's, I think he does great work but I was still a little put off by some of his work in the issue. But Joe was put on to the title pretty quickly since Ian hurt his hand. And someone did mention that Joe has said he is becoming more comfortable with the characters.

Only a little? Come on. Its not like they went and got Damian Scott or the guy who did the Mr. Horrific arc of JSA Classified. The title alone is ridiculous. If you want to drop the book, fine, but don't pretend like this is the greatest tragedy done to the Titans since conception or something.

Titans Art
 
Hey, at least it's not the toddler who scribbles the "art" in RAVEN.

Besides, issue #5 is drawn by Rodney Buchemi, who's probably the best comic book artist alive (though some will argue that point with me). Check out his gallery on deviantart... it's at http://buchemi.deviantart.com/gallery/

and here's one of my favorites:

Yeah. If someone wanted to have this reaction, it should have been when Winnick was announced as writer.

But seriously. Sorry. (I did laugh for a minute, and then felt bad. So I'm not an entirely evil person.)

Ooh, nice. Why can't this guy be the regular artist until Churchill returns??

Pivitor May 31st, 2008 09:38 PM

Ugh, I really do hope Benitez's getting better as he goes, cause he's pretty terrible.

Isn't George Perez still ALIVE?!?!

:D

kory_anders May 31st, 2008 10:00 PM

I like Benitez's art :x Of course I like Churchill's art as well, I also dig the Buchemi pic Marcus posted, I'm happy either way, I guess.

DABEARS May 31st, 2008 10:09 PM

Yeah, I like Joe's art too. I am okay with this news.

Jake1823 May 31st, 2008 10:13 PM

Wow, I thought they actually said to drop dead. That would have been kinda funny...

Having met Dan Didio in person, and understanding fully the kind of person he really is, it would not surprise me in the least if he actually said that. :-(

Oh, and good point about Pérez. Perhaps I should rephrase that Buchemi is among the greatest artists alive. George is, of course, THE greatest.

All the accounts that I've ever heard about the guy, and the interviews I've seen and read, have given me the impression that he's a good guy. You'd actually be the first to say otherwise.

kory_anders May 31st, 2008 10:26 PM

I've met Didio several times and he's always been very nice to me, he even gave me a free Nightwing figure last time I visited his office :) Anyone who gives me free loot is cool in my book LOL!
