Alan Davis, Wolverine, Part 2

Even standard Alan Davis is still good Alan Davis. Twenty images from the six issue “Killable” story in Wolverine #8-13 by Paul Cornell, Alan Davis, Mark Farmer, Lee Loughridge, Matt Hollingsworth, Jason Keith, Christina Strain, Rachelle Rosenberg and Cory Petit. 

Things I like: Making Logan look reaaaaalllyyy messed up. The height difference between Sabretooth and Logan. Logan always has a “runt” quality to him. The other worldliness of the Watcher. Big guns. And tech. And interesting panel composition/perspective.

Things I like: Anatomy during fight scenes - the way his figures twist and recoil. Taking a fully face masked character and seeing every emotion - he knows how to make his characters act on the page. The fluidity of Storm. The X-Men group shot that takes me back to Mutant Massacre days. Ice Man looking like a Frost Giant. The grace of Batroc the Leaper. And always remembering that he’s drawing comics - with big ideas and dramatic splash pages - not storyboards. His panels move and his storytelling skills are great. Nothing flat and static and movie-esque here. These be comics!

KISS ME, I’M GREEN!

        

Today’s a perfect day to post about an “event” that happened back in February. ”Green Lantern Day” was loosely celebrated (mostly on Twitter) on February 8th, 2014. Or, 2814 – which is the Space Sector designation for Earth in the DC Comics Universe. It was nice to see a social media topic bring people together rather than throw them at odds, so I played along by free writing (free tweeting?) whatever came to mind while thinking about the thirty years I’ve been reading Green Lantern comics. What follows is a (somewhat) chronological list of those Green Lantern mythos that are the strongest in my recollection. I’m sure if I gave it more thought, I could add and expand. But I like quick lists like this because of the memories they spark or the conversations they could start. Enjoy!
