News Post: Transformers: Rising Storm Issue #3 Five-Page Preview
Ya lost me at Carlos Magno
I can hardly tell what the hell is going on in any of those panels...CONGRATULATIONS its just like the movies!
LOL at printing error on page 3. Prime suddenly being an angst-muffin is not very interesting. Art is nearly incomprehensible and writer almost seems to know it...I greatly enjoyed the bit on page 1.
I think I might actually like the way he draws Bludgeon though. o_0
Oh, and now there's a movie Space Case? Am I the only one who actually likes Starscream being one of the few jet Transformers in the movie-verse?
I at first thought people were being too hard on Carlos Magno, but his art realy has gotten worse, hasn't it? He does not know how to draw the movie designs at all.
It's like his style actually emphasizes what all the detractors see in the movie designs. I almost wonder if Magno actually hates the movies too, and he's doing this on purpose?
OMG Bludgeon Is here!
Whew. these designs.... in issue one when they had Astrotrain....I just kinda had to go....If you say so.
More crappy Magno art...
Everything is so...ugly.
Man, seriously, the hell with ALL of you. This comic has been GREAT so far, as has Foundation, and I'm really looking forward to the next issue. Magno draws the movie designs as they look, and draws more realistic humans and more thorough backgrounds better than most artists working on Transformers comics do. He draws the world of the movie as it is. Yes, he's had some missteps - there were some woeful cases of package-photo copying very early on, and Nefarious was a bit of a mess, but he's steadily improved, the colorist working with him on Rising Storm knows how to treat his work, and he's very well suited to capturing the "live-action" feel the movieverse - or at least, the stories set on Earth. But then, the level of artistic variation most Transformers comic readers are willing to tolerate is a painfully narrow one. If you can't tell what is happening in these five pages? There is something wrong with you.
you said it man, hopefully this magno fella doesn't get work after this, it's simply horrendous
Well, I think we know who Terradive's repaint is.
Yay, Space Case as a Terradive repaint, I can get on board with that!
The art is definitely getting better, that's not saying much but it's getting there, and I'm loving the story so far. How many issues is this story slated for?
I didn't think it was possible for the twins to get even uglier, but dayum.
I'm really liking rising storm so far. Absolutly great story. Just shit-tastic art from magno.
And holy crap jolt has several speaking lines. And mirage and bludgeon too!
why does Optimus repeat himself? also brain?
Barber more than makes up for the questionable art. Dudebro knows his shit, and goes way the hell out of his way to make everything from previous books, comics and films line up.
Joined the pages for a better panorama...
Am I the only one that doesn't hate this artwork?
Come with me. We shall drink tea and have biscuits together, and leave all the rest behind.
Probs a daft question but who's the red and blue guy on page 1?..
i thought it was OP at first but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Separate names with a comma.
