Today's Pronouncements

By | Thursday, April 08, 2010 4 comments
After a nice comics discussion with my buddy Dave today, I wanted to let everyone know a couple things that we've decided.

1) John Byrne is still a pretty frickin' talented artist/storyteller. And we're not just saying that because it was his Fantastic Four and West Coast Avengers that really got us hooked on comics.

2) There is no such thing as a bad Roger Stern story.

There were a few more minor addenda and asides, but those were the two biggies. Please make note of them and plan your future comic purchases accordingly.

1) Well, that drawing is splendid, though I'm not sure about storyteller; what evidence do we have? Has Byrne drawn a full story in the past five years? (There was that FX thing, but he didn't write it, and the impression I got from those who read it was that Byrne seemed to be phoning in the art.)
2) Ver possibly not outright "bad," no. I do think Stern underwhelmed when he wrote Fantastic Four -- though he's by no means the only writer to bat well below his average on that title.

I think you missed the post title, Matt. These are pronouncements; you're not allowed questioning them. ;)

Heh, thank you for clearing up my misunderstanding. I got a good, much-needed laugh.

John has done a series of stories for IDW, including some fantastic ANGEL stories. The Lorne story he just did was heart-breaking.
