: :No offense, if comics were a writer's domain, wouldn't these people be focusing more on writing novels/short stories/TV/movies?
: They do.
: I just can't accept the fact that you don't have to have story to go with your art. One without the other is a short story or a pin up.
You're right here, I agree you have to have a story with the art. All I'm saying is that *initially* it is the art that sells the book. Case in point, only because Pseudo brought him up, I bought the book Coven for one reason only, Ian Churchill... in my opinion he's one of the best artists out there (while Pseudo finds his art shit... heh-heh), but I stayed with the book because I found the story interesting.
A book out now that I can't get into b/c of the art, even though I've been told the writing is phenomenol is X-Force, only b/c I find Alldred's work childish. Now, I know many people love his work, but hey, I don't, we each have our opinions. So suffice to say, you *must* have both, but I think it is the art that is going to initially catch your eye.
And that was Liefeld's gift.
