Comic book fans are a passionate group of people. I’d go as far as saying borderline psychotic at times.
When they find something they don’t agree with, they can become worse trolls than the people who blow into the microphone on Xbox Live (Bastards!)
One area that has garnered a lot of angry critics in recent years is the art of both Greg land and Salvador Larroca, or should we say the art that Land and Larroca have copied.
That’s why I was a little uncertain of how to proceed when I was approached by Ricky.
Ricky is creating a comic that hopes to solve the problem of completely mental and mostly impossible fight sequences in comic books. He plans to do this with Rotoscoping, a technique that has been used in animation for years which basically involves tracing the frames of film to create a cartoon.
He explains it much better than I have over on the Kickstarter page for the book. You can find out more about the process here.
But what do you think? Legitimate attempt to improve comic books or taking the creativity out of creating?
