Well now that's just unfair. Frogs don't deserve that kind of disparagement, they're valuable members of our community. And haven't they've been through enough? From Alex Jones to Pepe to this. They can't even get cyber without alt-right baggage following them.os189 wrote: ↑Thu Jun 10, 2021 8:31 amClicked just to see the comments....did not disappoint.
I remember seeing ads for Cyberfrog back in Wizard magazine and thinking "Well that's about the stupidest thing I've ever seen..." Not only did I find it just a dumb concept, but I personally find frogs and toads to be utterly repulsive creatures.
Funny how that was one of those early 90s comics "boom" books that only existed cause it was right before the bubble burst. I wonder if the fact that he's attempting to make it an action figure is some kind of similar sign that the action figure market is about to buckle under its own weight as well?
I had no idea he eventually made it to the big leagues working on X-Men and a bunch of stuff for DC, as well. I think he's got a perfectly serviceable art style, and I admire that he actually draws and doesn't just use 3D models, but nothing about his work stands out to me as truly exceptional. He doesn't seem to have his own unique penciling style at all....it's really similar to Phil Jiminez, in my opinion. Maybe more cross-hatching.
(Also, good call on the Van Sciver/Jiminez comparisons. DC always got a lot of guys in that mold during the Didio years.)
