In Response To: Re: Escalation #7 (TDSpiral)

: The art has been pretty... not good. I've found that a lot of the Halo comics
: don't look as good as they should, but this series in particular is just
: bad. I don't know if it's just the tight deadlines or what, because Omar
: Francia isn't a bad artist, his work on the Mass Effect comics is pretty
: great. However, in Escalation there's only two kinds of faces- which look
: nothing like the characters in the games. Also, the designs of the things
: not seen in the games stand out as generic- like the Covenant laser beam
: station or the civilian clothes. Vata 'Gajat looks interesting, but that's
: because his armor is based on Halo 4 concept art.

: I want to like Escalation, but with comics being so dependent on visuals to
: tell a story, it hurts the narrative sometimes.

You know, I sort of agree... thinking more about it, it's almost like they're putting out a story in comic book form, rather than a comic book that tells its story as if comic were the best medium for it. I'd love to see more effort put into the visuals, personally.
